GoDaddy Promo Code - Create Your Own Domain For $1.99 only

If you have not already noticed, I've since purchased my own domain ( so as to have an URL address that's my own! You can still access my blog via as Google is smart enough to redirect it to my own domain. ;-) 

There are a few reasons for me to purchase my own Domain :

1. This investment theme blog has been existed slightly more than three months and I like the blog title and hence try to secured it as soon as possible.

2. With own domain, it could open up a whole lot of other online opportunities that free-hosting might not be able to enjoy. 

3. I managed to secured a GoDaddy Promotion Code that allow me to buy a .COM domain with only $1.99 (For the first year). If you are interested, you can click on the image below and input the Promo Code:

Of course, there is nothing wrong to remain blogging with Blogger's free domain, just that it might not be as exclusive ;-)

Do you blog with own domain? What is your reason(s) for getting your own domain?



  1. I can think of many reasons why you shouldn't have a domain of your own.

    1. The information is hosted on the server. If that server crashed, will it have the capability for backup, like what google does? Afterall, google is a huge MNC.

    2. You have to pay for essentially the same services, perhaps with lesser support from a smaller outfit who is now hosting the site.

    3. How reliable is it? Google has done a great job but sometimes it also have downtime, though rare and few in between.

    So what's the advantages of having a private domain name? Can you elaborate a bit more on pt 2 pls? Thanks!

    1. Hi butterfly, I think you might have misunderstood own domain vs self-hosting, they are two different thing. Basically, I just bought my own domain but continue to be hosted freely with Blogger's. So I am still pretty relied on Google's ;-) In short, I just bought a "private" property address number but the "land" still belongs to Google!

      For point 2, I am more looking at the Internet marketing perspective whereby some networks/advertisers would like to work with blogs that are own domain.

      Hope this clarifies!

  2. Ah, I must have misunderstood. Thanks for clarifying with me. I guess doing that is okay, because it's still hosted under google. Best of luck in finding online opportunities to monetise your blog :)

    1. Thanks! Yeah.. it is always good to expand our income streams, especially those passive ones ;-)
