Need web site screen shot? Thumbalizr may help you

Thumbalizr is a new tool on Internet that allows its user to take screen shot of web sites for free which could be further used for documentation and presentations. Its very simple to use.. no login required and work directly from home page. Moreover that user has option to take the screen shot of whole page or only screen view with different resolutions as needed. The one thing I don't like about this is that its damn slow. This is currently in alpha phase, so no idea how long they will go.

Here is the thumb of my blog taken using thumbalizr:

Cheapest domain names and hosting stuff

I was analyzing domain name and web hosting purchasing and their price comparison over Internet sometimes before. Here are the cheapest price I ever found:


For cheapest .com domain name Netfirms is offering lowest price. Just $ 4.95/year, however for second year renew you have to pay regular price.


For cheapest .info domain name scs-domains is offering lowest price. Just $1.99/year. Earlier the was offering this lowest price just $ 0.99/year but now I can't see this offer on their web site.


For cheapest + php hosting ServerSea is offering very low prices starting from just 1.79/month. And amazing thing is that they are also giving one free domain name on registration. The deal looks very good but I don't have any idea about their support and maintenance.


Check out for your need and find the cheapest.
