This post is for all those bloggers like me who have their own domain and are oblivious to the fact that their personal information are plastered in the world wide web.
Yesterday, I was asking kuya/Br. Vince about this website wherein you can see information about the domain and its owner. It is called WHOIS, but we both lost the link to it and I am so lazy to google it, I just discarded the idea.
Then, I chance upon this website Smart PageRank SEO Tools that has a WHOIS in the list. Yey! I immediately checked Sasha-says and was annoyed to see my personal information I entered when I registered this domain. It was in my mind to check this one before but always forgets about it. I immediately contacted BigSkyMedia to ask if there is a way to remove/hide my personal information. And good thing it was acted on immediately. Kunsabagay mabait kasi ang BigSkyMedia talaga. Isang text or email lang okay na.
So check your cpanels, Ferdz of BigSkyMedia told me you can change to ‘private’ these information, so as to hide it even when others check WHOIS. Mine was changed to private and I checked this morning, it was tagged as such already.
There are people out there with nothing else to do but play pranks on other people. Saka your full name, address and telephone numbers (landline and cellphone) are listed there. You don’t want that in the hands of psychos right?
I have been contemplating getting my own domain for the past few weeks now. But due to budget constraints, it took me sometime to be able to finally get one.
I paid for this domain last May 10th. Due to too much kaartehan on my part, I found a theme I like after days of searching and testing. And then I changed it again! Hahaha. Oh well, you know me. I will still be blogging at akoni from time to time. I cannot leave it so easily. I love that blog so much I almost have gotten a .info domain. Plus, I have more than enough paid posts that’s needed to be done and it’ll all be posted there.
By the way, you might be asking why “Sasha says…”? I’ve been talking about my life and everything related to it online for the past 3 years now. So when I was thinking of a domain name, I thought I should get something related to my personality. And talking to people, strangers included, is something inherent in me. Something I cannot change. Thus, the domain name 😉
I’ve merged both my blogspot and akoni posts here so when you dig into my archives, you’d find posts from both sites.
I’ve added a “What’s Hot on the Web?” page for updates on what’s the latest craze going on in the web. This is for my blogger friends and visitors who are lazy to search for these news. This will mostly be about problogging, improving site ranks, and the like.
Thanks to BigSkyMedia for the affordable hosting plans, Blog to Profit for the income I received with the referral fee that I used to pay for this domain, Cess for asking me about bandwidth and webspace and making me all excited about a new domain of my own and for suggesting this domain name.Thanks as well to ate Nalen aka Manilenya for telling me about BigSkyMedia during our EB. To Karen, Wendy, Mousey Ju and Ate Neng for the brainstorming. Hahaha. To kuya Br. Vince who told me all about the terms I am not familiar with. To Ferdz for patiently answering my questions.And most of all… to ate Ghee for being kind enough to let me continue blogging at akoni for a while until this site’s rank become stable.
Please visit my subhosted friends… Mousey. And soon to open >> Wendy and Ate Neng.
