About the Location Change

Well t2.technion.ac.il is the Technion’s undergraduate students’ server. It gives personal homepages as part of its service, so I set up a homepage there, and gradually populated it with more and more things.

Since I’m hopefully about to graduate soon, it is probable that I will lose the account on t2, and therefore now need to find a new hosting and location.

I chose EU.org as a domain name service provider, because they give free permanent domain names for organizations and individuals. Since I’m actually proud of being Israeli, I picked up the il.eu.org suffix to give shlomif.il.eu.org. (shlomif is my username, and common Internet alias).

I’d rather not try to get a super domain (such as www.shlomif.org or www.shlomif.org.il) because these things cost money and expire after a while, and may be hijacked by all kinds of Internet low-life. shlomif.il.eu.org, on the other hand, is all mine and will remain so , forever. It’s sad that the current DNS service works like that, so I have to find the best solution.
