I've been literally scouring the internet for domain hosting sites that do not only offer cheap prices, but payment methods that are not only confined to credit cards and Paypal. Just last month, I found a site through Facebook which seemed like an answered prayer to my almost half-a-year search to finally get myself a domain for my blog - Pangalan.com.
From their Company Profile, Pangalan.com is a brand name under the GMO Cloud Pte. Ltd. company based in Singapore. They aim to bring quality online services to Filipinos from domain registration to reliable web hosting. Their domains include .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .ph, .com.ph, .net.ph, .org.ph, .me, .mobi and .asia. Regular domain price ranges from 500 above but as of now, they have an ongoing campaign until the 27th of February, so they offer 50% off on their .com and .net domains! Isn't it amazing? As for the payment method, they offer both online and offline payments. This was one big factor why I chose to sign up my domain in Pangalan.com because people who would like to purchase their own domain names and yet don't have Paypal accounts or credit cards could still go on with their registration! Aside from the affordable domain, the quality of service and the payment method, I really opted to sign up with them because of the mere fact that this is managed by Filipinos, so yeah, Pinoy pride! x
I'm pretty impressed by the fast service. It's been a week since I officially put up the domain. I ordered it online last February 8, paid it through Metrobank (I paid another Php 50 for the processing of the payment) on February 10, and finally set it up with my Blogger account just last February 11. I got my domain for Php 250. Yes, Php 250! And it's already valid for a year! Isn't it so affordable and worth the money? Plus, it is really easy to set up (my basis for this statement is the way I set it up through Blogger). For all those who are wondering how, you could look at it here and just in case you're not that technical, I would be more than willing to help. Although I don't get any benefit from referring this domain hosting site, I keep on telling other people about it, and just recently, I helped out my sister to set up her own domain which she also purchased from pangalan.com.
I finally crossed out something from my bucketlist and at the same time stumble upon a company that I could really trust when it comes to domain registration. So what are you waiting for? If I were you, buy your own domain now while they are having their Love Month Sale! x
