Google’s automatic identification of a website’s intended audience using the top level domains means my .kg domain name has been slowly sliding down the rankings in Google.

I’ve finally bit the bullet and gone to a more standard .uk domain name. Should say .eu, .ie and were also available but I weighed the odds and went for the more modern .uk with 301s all over the show. I’ve also taken the opportunity to move hosting from Blacknight to Spiral Hosting.

I would like to thank my domain providers from the great and glorious  KGKyrgyz Republic. Their odd little top level domain was a pleasure to use, but it is time to go home.

It was good while it lasted.

Саламатта калыңыздар, Мен сени сагындым.

Ак жол каалайм!
