At last a dotcom website of my own, after years of making websites mostly in geocities, and redirecting it to different free commercial domain, like cjb.net, lookscool.com, etc.. I can now proudly say to myself and to everyone that I now have my own domain.
With the help and teaching of my mastah/mentor Benj (benjarriola.com), he’s the one who told me about blogging and WordPress.
By the way I’m raredog in the internet community, and been using that alias since 1998, but somebody has registered it before me on yahoo, so I have change it to rare_dog. Since then I was planning to have a website, and that would obviously be raredog.com. That domain is very available when I checked it, but unfortunately my funds are not. Until the last time I checked it during the year 2005.
I got surprised to found out it already has an owner…waaahhhh!! And you guess it right, the site is really about dogs. Now I know that every second counts when deciding a domain for yourself or your company.
Then came the time Benj ask me if I want to start a blog. I immediately said “yes”, then Benj told me to think of a catchy name first for my blog/domain before anything else. I just sat there infront of my pc thinking, and this question is circling on my mind “Ano magandang name para sa websayt ko? (What will be the best name for my website?) websayt ko? websayt ko? websayt ko? Aha! That’s it! That will be the name of my website. WEBSAYTKO.COM
I urgently checked the availability of “websaytko” at DirectNic and found out its not yet taken. Then without wasting time I asked Benj to have it registered for me, before somebody would. By the way “websaytko” is actually the Tagalog translation of “my website“.
