So my romance with exotic domains continues. First it was a .US domain. Which sadly i couldn’t register as one has to be a USA resident. O well i managed to get it anyways thanks to a friend…
The hunt for a affordable registrar started. Looking at the prices on the various registrars and converting them in INR gave me a mini heart attack. The range was as high as 72Euro to 7.99Euro! Some registrars allowed just one year of registration, which kinda sucks.
After going through a couple of registrars i finally narrowed down on eurodns.com. They have a offer running which gives you insane discount and an .at domain will set you back by just 7.99Euro. And to top it all it allows you to register it for upto 10 years!
Sadly my Visa card from two different banks didn’t work. I will have to call them and ask why. Luckily eurodns.com accepts American Express… and viola in less then 5 min i had registered my .at domain.

You can also get a list of .at registrars from here
If i had not got such a good offer i don’t think i would have gone ahead and bought the domain. A bit of research/patience helps… and as i have said it previously, nothing like owning a fantastic domain!

Fledgling sushi chefs spend months (sometimes years) doing nothing but making the rice for the head chef.
If the rice isn’t right, it really doesn’t matter what else you do, you’re not going to be able to serve great sushi.
Most of the blogging and writing that goes on about marketing assumes that you already know how to make the rice. It assumes you understand copywriting and graphic design, that you’ve got experience in measuring direct response rates, that you’ve made hundreds of sales calls, have an innate empathy for what your customers want and think and that you know how to make a compelling case for what you believe.
Too often, we quickly jump ahead to the new thing, failing to get good enough at the important thing.

Tonight i shall drink
For my health stay always pink.
Tonight i shall sing
Like the bird in the spring.
Tonight i shall bow
To the almighty
And pray a path thou show.
Tonight i shall dream
My worries flow like boats in the stream.
Tonight i shall sleep
Memories of this day i shall always keep.
