Finally! We have domains!

I decided that today would be the day I registered lifes-adventures.me and webgurl.me! I used Hover as my domain registrar, for various reasons, the main one being that they didn’t support SOPA and PIPA, and acording to their tweets, they don’t support CISPA either. Not only that, the interface is definitely easier to work with than well… the other registrar. It does take a bit of getting used to, but once you get used to it, it’s fairly easy to find things and make things work. For the past couple hours, I’ve been working to set up email on both domains using Google apps for your domain. The process has gone fairly well, but I messed up on lifes-adventures.me, causing me to have to fix the MX record, (that’s the thing that routes the email to Google’s servers.) I might have messed up on webgurl.me, I’m not quite sure. Apparently some registrars require an extra . in the address at the end, and some don’t. I don’t think Hover does, but I put it in just to make sure, so I might have to go take it out when I get back from the evening healing rooms test run. I’ll worry about pointing lifes-adventures.me to blogger, and webgurl.me to a tumblr site that I need to set up, sometime in the next couple days.
