Tip 3 – Get A Webhosting
If you’re Malaysian, I would like to suggest you to get a local webhosting plan instead of foreign webhosting plan. The reason is simple –
stupid Streamyx “lets” you load the local sites and servers much more faster than foreign sites and servers.
I am currently using Datakl.com‘s linux webhosting plan with cpanel support. Everything is fine so far and they really provide me a very good service(7 days 24 hours technical support). Moreover, the price of their package offered is reasonable.
Get the cheapest webhosting package+1 domain name = RM165 per year only. Remember type in the promotion code before you put your order so you can get the discount up to RM50.
Tip 4 – Installation
