I will make this very quick, somewhere in 2013 when i started my internet business i needed a domain to buy unfortunately i didn’t have a credit card by then, i was fresh out of high school, so i had limited options.
A friend of mine suggested buying a domain from a malaysian domain registrar which accepted perfect money so i obliged and bought it.
I then got hosting from hostgator and and setup my website with wordpress, after 5 month i got an email saying the domain registrar has closed businesses. I tried to transfer the website but couldn’t so the domain expired. My months of hard work writing articles and social media presence for my brand went to waste, please get a well trusted domain registrar when purchasing domains
