How to get a free domain for your website or blog ? : Domain at no cost

Going to enter the online world ?? Are you a newbie to blogging ?? The first thing any website owner would think for his website is a domain . Normally people buy domains in websites like Godaddy , who give nice offers to their customers . But what if you get a domain for free ?? A domain at 0$ and without ads ? Is it possible ?

Yes it is . A website called is offering free domains to its users .All you have to do is sign up as a user and give them a reciprocal link on your homepage .

They will ask you for the redirection URL which is your blog or website created on some other free web server.Once you are done with registration and verification of your email address , they will activate your domain . E.g will redirect you to my blog . There are no ads and no time limit for this basic package .

There is one more website called Dot .tk which offers domains with redirection and ads .This one sucks as it does not even mask your original URL after redirection .It just redirects your .tk domain to your original one . .Co.nt is cool as it acts like a normal web domain.

So register today and have your own domain.I recommend you to buy a domain before you start a website as it won't be a good move your present domain is famous .

Twenty 20 sucks

Twenty 20 - the shorter version of cricket is n't looking good as expected . 50 over match is really good as it's a fight of teams in all aspects . But 20-20 is different . You need not need a team with talent in every aspect i.e batting,bowling and fielding , to win this . It made cricket just a game of luck. Every batsman is asked to hit the ball to the stands in these matches . Bowlers have nothing to do except getting themselves blowed up . Some people argue that bowlers are getting wickets . But who needs wickets in a 20 over match where the 10th batsman also tries to hit them . If you observe the economy rates of even good bowlers , you will find how tough bowlers find the tourney to keep going . Sometimes the best batsmen is nt able to score and the one who comes in the lower orders plays better than them . ICC might had thought that people will love to see 20 hr matches as result comes very fast. But game should not be just for entertainment of people , it should also justify the talent of the players .
One side bowlers are getting scrwed up and on other side ICC gave some offers like free hit to the batsman after a no ball and all .Totally Im not satisfied with this version of the game which lacks strategy and all .I still love to see the 50 over ODI 's .

What do you feel about twenty 20 ?


Happy Ganesh chaturthi

 Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to my readers . Have a nice day. 

For those who don't know about this God , Lemme introduce you .

Lord Ganesha , the son of one of the tri murthy's Lord Shiva is known for making you able to over ride your hurdles [Vignam's ] .So his name came out to be Vigneshwara . Hindu's pray this god before starting any work as it is believed that he lets your work to be done smoothly with out any hurdles . Lord vinayaka aka Ganesha aka Vigneswara is a fond lover of food and at this day once he ate that much that Moon laughed at him at his bulging stomach . Then he cursed moon that anyone who sees the moon  will face troubles . By this all people got frightened and prayed to Ganesha to change his mind.Lord Ganesha then changed his curse that no one should see the moon on this auspicious day or else they will face troubles . But it has been believed that if someone tells this story or reads this story seeing moon the curse wont have effect on them .The festival has been celebrated on the birthday of Lord Ganesh 


Real player 11 beta - Now with a windows media player 11 interface

Looks like the world has started changing itself with the new trendy Vista from Microsoft. Vista's basic theme has got a black taskbar and hovering over it will change the colour to a typical blue . Windows media player 11 , the latest media player from Microsoft has first changed itself to the Vista theme suitable colour . Now its the turn of Real player , who has not changed itself since a long time . The earlier real player was hated by me  just for its interface which didn't look cool . You can see the new real player in the picture above which is just similar to the windows media player in looks .The new real player interface also provides one click access to  Library , Real guide , Real games , Burn and transfer of music and video files. Once can even search for the video's using the search video text box.

Real player now allows you to download streaming web videos with just one click .

Vista has lead to a revolution with every product designer designing his product to match its interface which obviously willbe a feast to the users eyes .

I had been waiting for this browser to be launched in windows since a longtime . I stopped using Internet Explorer after the launch of Firefox. But when you open a large number of windows with scripts on some pages , Firefox eats up all your memory and makes the system slog on .

Safari loads much faster than Firefox and page loading is damn faster making it the fastest browser on the earth . I tested this browser on different configurations .

    How to market yourself infront of tourists ??

    This is what I learnt from my recent tour to Agra, the city which hosts the majestic wonder of the world i.e Taj Mahal .I was visiting the place with my friend . I was there once earlier but that time I was in a large group and the marketing skills of the Agra people were left unobserved by me .So what did I observe this time ?

    I left to Agra from Delhi by Taj Express at around 7:30 AM and I was in Agra by 10:30 AM.After entering the Agra station , I went to comesum , A multicuisine restaurant chain by Indian railways . Eventhough the one at Agra sucks, I had to eat there as its the best option available.Comesum at H.Nizamuddin rocks  and it is the favourite 24 hr destination for delhiites. 
    After having my bfast cum lunch , I came out of station. To my surprise a group of 10 autowalas pounced on me and my friend . But I decided not to go with them and I bargained for a sharing auto who agreeed to take me for 20 rs to Taj. Once I got into the auto , that guy and his assistant  convinced me in such a great way that I finally agreed for day long trip to Taj, Redfort and all in his auto for Rs 160 . He actually tells you in such a polite way " Sir Jindagi mein sirf ek hi baar aate ho , ab bhi aap kharcha nahi karte ho [ Sir you come here once in a life , then why you hesitate to spend here. spend and enjoy] " .

    After that the autowala took me to the Taj . Taj is wonderful as usual . But Im bothered about the Yamuna on its back which doesn't have water .I hope Yamuna gets water someday.

    People who have got their guides already from other locations are warning their tourists not to buy anything from the shopkeepers in and around Taj , whom they call hawkers ,who sell marble articles for Rs 20 and all . They warn you that once you are in , they can't get you out of the bargain and they will make you buy the thing .After the day is over I was back in the auto to go to the station. Every autowala in which you sit asks you whether you wanna do some shopping . You say yes or no , still they take you to a shop named Government shopping complex . I know that before and I told him that I don't wanna go at all . But he started requesting again that We need not buy anything . We just need to visit the shop and the autowala's number gets noted there which at festival times will be used for lottery . I reluctantly went inside as that person was begging me. I was not even interested to see the articles in the shop.But my friend who is new to the place, started looking at articles. Then a very aged and experienced salesman came there and started to market his products. He started with marble articles , next sarees and finally shoes. Everytime he shows you a product he will show you the optimised priced one first to attract you towards his product. Once you find any of their product fascinating , he will show you the costly ones which will obviously the best ones available in his shop . After seeing that If you don't buy it or you tell reasons like you don't have money and all , he will say " Arey yaar , paiso kheliye sochte ho , cheez dekho aap [ Cmon , why do you think of money when you have a very good product infront of you ? ] " . He made me do a shopping worth 1,000 in his shop with his skills . I wanted to shows the guy to you folks . But my camera was outta battery at that moment .

    Everywhere you go in Agra , people will attract you with their words and marketing skills . Be careful when you go there as a lot of hawkers are waiting for you .  The only place I recommend for shopping is sadarbazar as it has enough shops and shopping locations . Agra has nothing much to be seen except Taj and Red Fort .So its better to go by Taj express from delhi in morning and return by same in evening .

    If you have any experiences in Agra share it .

    Map My India - Indian Wikimapia

    Map my India :- I happened to listen this word from one of my friend who recommended this when I was searching for some location on wikimapia . He said he felt it better to search on this website as it has some advanced features than wikimapia.

    What features does Map My India have ?

    Maps : You can search for any location in India using their interactive search . Im pleased to see how they present their website . They detailed each and everything. Even in the search box you can see a Example being presented. In search results again one can find three different answers. One is found results for item you typed , second is similar results which it intelligently finds other places whose names are related to the one you searched and all and then the required directions .One can even find the restaurants , banks , hotels and all in the near by locality of your search.These directions and local search are available as tabs in the search script on the left.

    Elocation : One more distinct feature of this network . To use this features , one can register on the website and then can share the phone number and adress of some hotel , restaurant and all . This one is separately tabbed which prevents the users from messing up the original maps just like in wikimapia.Once you have a account , you can guide the other users and give them directions .

    For webmasters :

    They even have one more good feature . One can print or email any particular map or directions to anyone using this . For webmasters , you can map enable it by using our youtube-style embeddable maps, and links to specific searches (of maps, directions, local and eLocation) on MapmyIndia. You can read about these free services here>>

    I think these kind of interactive portals really help the users . If you know any other website that provides maps , tell others by posting in comments .
