Buying your own domain and hosting

I’ve noticed a fair lot of people have gone into more serious blogging, which includes the act of buying their own domain and hosting, installing WordPress or any other blogging tool.

I want to compile a listing of these people as well as how much they spent for getting their online services. SO if you do have your own personal domain and host, please post in the comment box and I’ll update this post as we go.

For me, I bought my domain from Big Sky Media where a *.com costs P550.00 a year. Cheap, noh? I chose these guys because payment methods were much easier – their BPI branch was in the middle of Makati. My hosting is being provided by b5media.
