This blog hosted in the easiest blogging platform, Blogger. Since June 2007 blogger has been helpful for me to start this blog and my dozen others. But, since the new rule on Custom Domain and as usual, free hosting service never comes with customer service, rockstarpundit.com has been ‘punished’. I can’t publish to www.rockstarpundit.com and i have been perplexing throughout blogger help, groups and so on and so on, and seems like noone has the answer.
I lose some part of this blog domain and lose browsing experience, rejected as affiliates and so on. I also lost links from previous www address and get into PR 0 from previous 2. I couldn’t get any help from blogger on this custom domain error as well as dozens of blogger out there.
I’ve tried to buy paid service from Google. Last week i try to buy a domain from Google using Google Checkout but then there was error and my previous order is at queue and so i can’t claim it. I tried to contact Google but there was no answer except automated reply. If i use free account then that’s ok no customer service but i can’t get into Google staff even when i pay for the service. So i said to myself, that’s it, i am moving to other blog hosting platform and i don’t mind paying for it for decent help and customer service!!!
Last month, my effort to move hosting failed because lack of payment option at the hosting company i’ve chosen. Since then, I have been browsing away and asking questions to almost all cool hosting company in the world wide web (you name it!) and try to look one that fit most with my needs. There are some in my list already and i will starting to move away all my blogs from Blogger to WordPress sometime soon.
I’m a TTZ Media publisher, and i try to help myself by keeping up to date on what John Chow is doing. Today, i read a blog post from him announcing a cool hosting plan deal from Bluefur for TTZ affiliates. So i bought one. By far, i got my emails replied from BlueFur sales staff 🙂 (even though my ticket is low priority from their support staff, lol).
The move is not yet finished and i think i reach the painful stage of moving my blog. I will cover the move step by step in my personal blog and somehow someway there will be some error etc or worse rockstarpundit.com will not reachable for a while. If you like this blog then i suggest you to subscribe to blog’s feed and i will keep you updated if the move has done.
