Can somebody lend me around $200,000, so I can go buy WT.com? If I ever make it big, I’m going to definitely buy a two letter domain, even if it doesn’t make sense. I’d get it just to make it my personal blog.
Domain real estate is a very funny business; people can sell domains that don’t mean anything for large amounts of money. For instance, if you have a LLLX.com you’d get at least $2,000 for it. There’s probably nothing LLLX can possibility stand for, but it’s a very easy domain to remember.Â It’s like selling a piece of land right next to the ocean, worth more than any real house nearby.
I just want to rewind time back to 1994 and buy up hundreds of domains. If I sold them today, I’d be a multimillionaire. Now to find the time machine.
Register.com is giving away one free domain. In order to qualify for this free domain, you must have a credit card. Don’t think they’re losing money; They do this promotion, to prey on the people who don’t turn off domain autorenew, which is initially on. If you don’t cancel that option, they charge 35 dollars for each domain renewal! I had trouble turning this feature off: The website didn’t allow me to, so I had to call them. To reemphasize the fact that they love to renew domains, they sent me an email after I got the function off.
We’ve noticed you’ve made a change to your SafeRenew settings and we want to make sure that you understand that disabling this important feature could result in your losing this service.
DON’T LOSE YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS
Every year, hundreds of people lose their Websites and other online services simply because they forgot to renew. That’s why we offer SafeRenew – an automatic renewal service to help protect your online presence. We encourage all of our customers to keep their SafeRenew settings enabled all the time.
Seriously, if you’re running a fairly successful online business would you really forget to renew? Probably not. What this email should be saying is “This automatic renewal service will take your money, and we love doing that!”.
In the end, I can’t complain because I got a free domain. Register.com is just playing the same game that every other domain registrar is: Try to hustle the average Joe into auto renewing domains and surprising them with a charge next year.

Tired of constantly visiting your favorite musicianâ€™s Myspace page to listen to your favorite single? Well now you can download them in a matter of seconds, using Firebug and Windows Media Player.
#1. Download the Firebug plugin for the Firefox Browser. This is a useful tool for determining what things youâ€™re downloading from the site. Itâ€™s mainly used for configuration of website, such as fixing the css. You can download it here.
#2. After you install Firebug, you should see the Firebug icon on the lower right side of the browser. Right click it and enable it; also you can it open it in a new window for convenience.
#3. Visit the Myspace page you want music out off of. If you have firebug open you should see a list of stuff that youâ€™re downloading from the site. The major thing you should see is a big file, usually more than 2mbs.
#4. Right click the location and copy it.
#5. Open windows media player and right click on File. Then open URL and put your copied url in.
#6. Once media player recognizes it, open your file and save your mp3.
Now you finally downloaded a song off Myspace! If you liked this guide then subscribe to this blog: Iâ€™ll write more useful guides later.
I woke up at 12pm and worked on my website until 12am.
So what exactly did I do? First, I had to resolve the Dynamic Name System for my domain: NS1.dailyyeah.com, NS2.dailyyeah.com. This basically is like a internet phone book for domains. This took about a year, literally. It took so long because if you change the nameserver, if you already have a domain, it takes the internet ages to recognize it. It has to tell every server that your domain address changed. Some servers might even have your old address. Overall this step take 24-48 hours. Talk about PAIN.
Secondly, I had to migrate my old WordPress: I had to take all the MySQL database and all the files. All the posts and instructions on how to use the physical files(like themes), are in the mysql file; everything else is in the physical files, that you can grab via FTP(file transfer protocol). This step took another year. Why? Cause my upload speed is ridiculously slow and I messed up several times, so I had to upload it more than once.
Finally, I had to get the whole thing to work. I hated this part, because the permalinks weren’t working. Permalinks are urls that point to blogs after you write them. I couldn’t figure out why click on my posts gave me a page missing error-404. It turned out that I needed to edit the .htacess file to allow it to change the domains. I believe .htacess works with the Apache server with the mod_rewrite module, to rewrite urls. Before editing the .htacess I was getting a “PAGE DOES NOT EXIST 404″, but it was resolved after I edited the permalink.
Basically, I spent my whole day configuring this website to my new Virtual Private Server. A virtual server basically host several domains, like shared hosting, but with a dedicated amount of ram and computer speed per domain: I have 300mb+ ram dedicated to DailyYeah.com. Before today I was on Dreamhost’s Shared hosting, which was painfully slow. Ironically, Dreamhost isn’t really a dream host. Now I’m hosting with Liquidweb and hopefully everything will be rocket speed fast! Their tech support is amazing: You just call their number and almost instantly you get to talk to a real person. At Dreamhost, it would take at least 1 full day for a person to respond via email, usually with an excuse of what happened.
