Have you noticed that https://nitishkumar.wordpress.com is now landing on http://nitishkumar.net? Yes!! I got the domain name registered under my name. No more a sub-domain on wordpress.com and no more the need to remembering the long name.
Yes! I understand the consequences that Google Page Ranks etc will drop down on this step for the new address and I need to start-a-fresh to earn, what I got in last years, but still I don’t mind. The fact is, I started regular blogging only by September 2009 and since then in every month, I raised the traffic more than the last month. So, its kind of new and I could do better for sure.
It was a simple process of buying the domain, took only a few mins and I spent around Rs. 700/- only for an year. For more details, you may go through the helpful post here by sparklestarr.

Google‘s offering was cheaper I guess, but I thought to give WordPress.com as there were other small issues and complications. Definitely, nothing could have been simpler than this.
I am always suspicious about web purchases , where they ask your credit card number and CVV? Can’t be there some other way?
