Developing my online shop

I think I can't post this in Facebook® because of Facebook®'s security systems might block this post, so I will write this blog entry in this main blog of mine.

Last year 2022, Google® finally stopped offering their free legacy Google® Workspace™ accounts for business use and I had to switch it back to only personal use. This includes my domains,, , , and . I removed my Dhiraagu registered domain from my Google® Workspace™ ( formerly called Google® G Suite™ and Google® Apps free ) and decided to use it for my online business.

My domain was registered in 26 July 2018 in Dhiraagu to celebrate the Independence Day of the Maldives on my own. It only costed 250 MVR registration and processing fee and 50 MVR per month for hosting fee. With GST (Goods and Service Tax) included it's now 54 MVR per month.

I needed web hosting for my business so I bought the cheapest web hosting package offered by Dhiraagu and more importantly I need a business email with domain . But when I tried to develop my business web site I encountered lots of severe errors and problems in Dhiraagu web hosting. Many years ago in 2012 I developed a website for a friend of mine and during that time Dhiraagu web hosting was very smooth and easy. I never encountered any problems during that time. 

I choose Linux® web hosting as I am more familiar with developing websites in the Linux® web hosting server environment/operating system.

So since September 2022 I attempted to develop a small online web site in Dhiraagu web hosting and finally gave up.

Therefore I searched the internet for a free and also ad free web hosting company and found which is a UK based company offering free web hosting without advertisements and with many free features including PrestaShop™ support which is the CMS (Content Management System) for the online shop I attempted to develop in Dhiraagu web hosting. I am still developing it but these days I am resting at home most of the time.

I use Cloudflare® for my DNS and CDN (Content Delivery Network) and the nameservers of my domain  is in Cloudflare®.

Now comes the most interesting part of this blog entry.

My domain is registered in Dhiraagu, served by Cloudflare®, with two websites hosted in different companies and email provided by another company. The subdomain website is hosted in in the United Kingdom, the main domain website is hosted in Google® Blogger™, the emails are hosted in which is an Indian company based in Chennai, India...I have used four different companies to power up my domain so that the security is high and when one get's down or hacked, the others will still be online with my control...T

To seperate the subdomain from I had to add two NS records in the DNS settings in Cloudflare and point it to nameservers and one addtional A record pointing that too to ...

The SSL/TLS certificate is provided by Google for free and for both the TLD (Top Level Domain) and subdomain and there might still be some errors when visting to these links...

Allah Akbar...Allah is great
