I've always lingered with the idea of getting my own web host and domain name.
People always tell me "Boss Stewie! A blogger like you should be having his own domain!".
But I always resisted. Because I'm happy with Blogspot.
I'm not too fussed about being on a free host especially since there isn't really anything I can think of that having my own domain can do but Blogspot can't.
I can even put ads on my Blogspot blog...
But today I went a step further by searching for my own domain name. I searched "Timothytiah.com" only to find this. SOMEBODY STOLE MY DOMAIN NAME!!!
Now if it was "Timothy.com" I could perfectly understand that...
BUT WHO IN THE WORLD WOULD STEAL "TIMOTHYTIAH.COM"?!?! WHO?!?!?
I did a /whois on Godaddy to find out the details of the person who registered my domain only to find this.
Organization: Maltuzi LLC
Address: 800 West El Camino Real Suite 180 City, Province,
Post Code: Mountain View, CA, 94040
Country: US Phone: 1.6508146730
So it was one of those domain holding companies that stole my domain!
Checking out their website, I found the culprit
"Our technology includes automated processes that scours the internet and mines millions of pieces of data to determine domain names that have the potential for generating traffic".
WELL HAH!!! TOO BAD THEIR TECHNOLOGIES ARE WRONG!!!
Timothytiah.com is NEVER going to generate a lot of traffic because NOBODY is going to buy it especially now that I REFUSE to fall into their trap (and if I don't buy it who else will).
(Unless somebody buys timothytiah.com and turns it into a bogel site)
I don't CARE ABOUT timothytiah.com!
I could just go for timothytiah.net then!
NOOOOO I WANT TIMOTHYTIAH.COM!!!
I AM SO PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW.
NOT JUST THIS KIND OF PISSED OFF. OR EVEN ERIC CARTMAN'S KIND OF PISSED OFF. I AM THIS KIND OF PISSED OFF.
NOW WHO'S WITH ME?!?!?
PS: To anyone who's thinking of saying "Well technically it's not YOUR domain because you didn't register it"...... DON'T!!!
I AM NOT IN THE MOOD FOR BEING "TECHNICALLY" RIGHT OR WRONG!!!
