Zewt seeks your counsel

6 months ago, a few blogger-mates were getting their own domain and they also mentioned that I should get one too. Johnson my “twin” then said he is willing to host it for me free of charge. It’s certainly an offer not to be missed.

It was then I did a search for my most preferred domain name, zewt.com but lo and behold, that address was then being sold for US$1,925! Even if I was willing to pay that amount for my very own domain, Jules would have killed me.

Anyway, the idea of getting my own domain has again cropped up my mind and you know what? Zewt.com has been bought over and it’s now an online website for a Turkish internet solutions company. So even if want to pay US$1,925 now, I will not get my preferred zewt.com domain. I suggested zewt.net but my twin said people generally remember dot-com instead of dot-net.

My next preferred version is azaig.com but then
bongkersz said that taking out the word zewt from the name will take out some sting. Well, just so many things to consider and hey… why don’t you tell me what is a good domain name? Come... cast your vote please...

"zewtology" sounds nice. Hehe.

US$1,925! How much petroleum is that? :P

rainbow angeles said...

zewt.net!

-=SiN=- said...

200k hits wanna go dot com de har?
wait till hit 500k then go also not too late.. =)

Winn said...

zewt.net

Iced Nyior said...

I'd go for zewt.net or thezewt.com

Im personally using .org and I think its fine. Do people actually memorize domain names now? Using rss readers is faster

i dont agree with sin asking u to wait till u get 500k hits. It'll be harder to move your visitors to the new domain

Raymond Chan said...

Nothing wrong with dot net as I'm using it myself. It doesn't matter whether people remember the dot net or not, so as long as your content is good, people will still visit. Cheers.

Jon Chu said...

zewt.com

cannot ah?

kyh said...

I'd love my domain to be .com instead of those fancy fancy ones. It's up to you. :)

what about justzewt.com? hehehehe

anyway, zewt.net and thezewt.com seem ok to me.

seokthong said...

zewt.net is fine. For me there's no difference between .com or .net.. But whatever it is, i will still drop by :-)

Bee Ean said...

myzewt.com

pavlova said...

hm, if ppl type in zewt.com and cant see your blog, the next thing ppl will try it zewt.net, so i think that's the next best alternative :P

Tine said...

Personally, I think zewt.net is a lot easier to remember than azaig.com. Plus it's your name, so trust me, ppl will REMEMBER it.

And let me just say, a domain? FINALLY!!

Huei said...

zewt.net!

AND! u could get some traffic from the US$1925 domain! ;P

i wana get a domain too! redhotchilipadi.com sounds good? ;P how come so nice got free hosttt?! exabytes selling for like almost RM300 (if u pay in USD..if pay in RM..it's more than that!)

ClaudiaMom said...

zewtology

giddy tigress said...

zewt.net actually has a nice ring to it. Rolls of the tongue quite easily too.
But if you really prefer a dot com, how about zewttalks.com? I just checked it out and it's available :)

pb said...

I'd go with Zewt.net because most people identify with your zewt moniker and address. .net isn't that unpopular anymore.

sugarbaby said...

zewtism.com better mah~

-Princess Shin- said...

Aiyoh.. poor thing. What are the chances that zewt.com is taken? That's the best la. .net sounds weird. Still prefer .com

Good luck in choosing the best one!

suituapui said...

You have ur loyal followers/disciples...so whatever name will not matter. Just choose one that is nice!...And others can just google "As Zewt as it gets" anyway! I choose AZAIG.com. Zewtnet sounds like the name of a lizard or something! Hahahahahaha!!!

Angie Tan said...

hahaaha... i have a domain but lazy to move since i may not update my blog so often. :-(

anyway, keep the zewt.. easier to remember. ;-)

pinknpurplelizard said...

ZEWT.ORG!!! ok... that was silly in a way... Paiseh...

jacss said...

thou i chose thezewt.com but zewt.net is my 2nd choice!! u somehow can't leave the zewt behind...coz that's what i'm addressing you....hahaha

Jason Geek said...

Must be zewtology.com :D it sounds like some cult :D

kyh said...

i'm gonna insist on my suggestion: justzewt.com. hahaha! :P

gina said...

zewt.net and zewtism.com got my votes.

jam said...

Nothing wrong with a dot net domain. Mine is dot net too!

khengsiong said...

Have you forgotten the .biz domain? If not the latest .xxx domain ;P

In Taiwan there is this domain: idv.tw - idv for individual. Wondering why we don't have something similar elsewhere.

drumsticks said...

i've checked and zewt.com/net/org/info/biz/cn has been taken.

how about zewtness.com or zewtpinions.com

Terra Shield said...

How come no one likes the name azaig? I think it's cool!

bongkersz said...

zewtie.com or zewtsie.com or zewtzewt nyahahahahaha!

i thought zewt.net is no longer available? thezewt.com is quite good.

Jason Geek - hahaha... must have a following first.

gina - zewtism actually sounds a bit tricky...

jam - now, even if i want... cant get.

khengsiong - heard zewt.biz is taken sigh.

Terra Shield - doesnt bring any meaning i guess.

ArMs - iamzewt... how come i never thought of that before... gmmm....

sugarbaby - hahaha... hmmm...

pinknpurplelizard - the one i bought is so far away from that ....

carolineL - KISS... that's the principle.

happysurfer - decisions made... :)

anak merdeka - zewtiness! haha...

rachel - thought of that... but then i realised i dont really like my mail :)

missironic said...

wow..u're getting ur own domain. tats cool! i voted for zewt.net! easier to remember..ehehehe...

adrianlee said...

zewt.net !!

KittyCat said...

theZewt.com - When I got my own domain, most friends searched for apregnantpause.com and found nothing.

It took them a while to try apregnantpause.net

Wah...someone wants to host your domain for free??? Lucky you!

We homemakers are struggling to do that with miserly paid posts OK.

Do you think I'll get more traffic if I posted hot pics of sexy, young men?

See what a Mother has to do to support her little boy's toys and books? ;-)

KittyCat said...

By the way, you don't seem to have a blogroll? Link melah...

Lynette said...

www.aszewtasitgets.com

same as the title to your blog.

when will you be in Sg again?

zewt said...

missironic - wait for it :)

adrianlee - that is certainly top choice.

kittycat - he is a good friend mah.... hopefully all will be well. and let me get my new blog up first then i will set up a proper blogroll.

lynette - too long ler...

The Malaysian Life said...

Most people already know your blog. Readers who can't find your new domain name will search on google or yahoo typing "zewt" as the keyword - this domain or the new one zewt.net should appear, shouldn't it ?

zewt said...

the malaysian life - it shuld.... hopefully. anyway, i will keep the zewt in there.

narrowband said...

Whether net, com or com.my or even the orgasmic 'org', as long as it's yours i'll still drop by. Content is king. Nobody really cares about domains these days, cuz we've got our feedreaders and google.

But yeah Zewt.net is nice cuz the 'e' is repeated. I used to hear that if u go JPJ to reg for vehicle no. plate, if any number is repeated then it's abit more expensive to book.

zewt said...

narrowband - content is king... good to know that. dunno about the JPJ thing cos i dont really care what number i get. not that superstitous lah.
