I tried to change the name of this site into a shorter one. You know how much i like the name avyukta. So, was trying http://avyukta.com. But it was already parked. Of course http://www.avyukta.net is available, but it is costing me $40 per year. Huh ! I thought i better do some URL Forwarding [Explained below], and got this http://www.no-ip.com, and Viola !!! here is my new address
http://keerthi.no-ip.com [sounds cute, isnt it !].
URL forwarding means, you can host a site anywhere, which would be a sub-domain, of a major Domain. For instance, you should be familiar with GeoCities, which is a Yahoo service, that allows you to create and host web pages of your own content. But the address would looklike, http://geocities.yahoo.com/username/page1/page2.html. Boy, thats a big name to remember and promote. So, there are services like http://www.no-ip.com, and many others that provide a Short URL for your site, and the service provider simply forwards any request to this Short URL to the URL you specify. Life made simpler (shorter in this case ?)
