I re-arranged slightly my blogs and domains. In short:

  • Logos of Crafts “moves” to https://tech.costas.gr/. Quotes around “moves”, as the blog is still hosted on WordPress (but do update your bookmarks, as it may change at some point; the same applies for the other two).
  • The blog for music & art moves to http://art.costas.gr/.
  • There’s a new blog. It can be found at http://blog.sla.gr/. It is, unsurprisingly enough, about service level agreements. Mostly automated ones, with a slight bias towards Cloud computing.

For emphasis: Update your bookmarks!


Registrar January 20, 2010

I recently decided to register a couple of .EU domains, and thought it may be a chance to consolidate my domains under one registrar. I have a .NAME, a .GR, plus these new ones — and you never know what else may come up. So I had to find a registrar who would support these three TLDs at the very least. As the list of Greek registrars is too long to search for .NAME capacity, it was much easier to check out the ones from abroad. Eventually I ended up subscribing to Netim, a French registrar with the service of whom I have been very happy so far. They offer a number of free and low-cost extras, plus a very sufficient management interface.

On another note, I really like how .EU domains are ridiculously cheap, and you get them in minutes. Not much to compare with the process (and price) of getting a .GR domain, which may last up to 20 days AFAIU.
