How To Link Domain .my myNIC to WordPress

Today I would like to do a Tutorial on How To Link Your Domain .my to WordPress Blog.

This tutorial is useful particularly when you just bought a new domain.my from myNIC during a promotion and want to link it to one of your wordpress blog.

In my experience, linking common domain such as .com .net or .org is easy compare to .my. It is because myNIC is giving you a hard time to configure their setting to change a nameserver.

There are 3 Steps to link domain .my to your WordPress blog :

  1. Addon domain to your cpanel hosting
  2. Identify your hosting nameserver
  3. Modify nameserver at myNIC

 

1. Addon Domains on Your Hosting Cpanel

The reason I want to addon domains is because I already have a domain and hosting, lankapo.com. So I just want to link my new domain .my that I got free to my lankapo.com hosting.

This will save money because I don’t have to buy a new hosting to link my new .my domain.

In case you still don’t have a hosting, I would like to recommend ServerFreak, been a loyal customer for 6 years now.  If you have a hosting only and want to dedicate to your new domain .my, you can proceed to step 2.

How to Addon Domains on your Hosting cpanel :

a. Login to your hosting cpanel

b. Go to Domains, Addon Domains

c. Add your new domain.my like below

visit

 d. Then, go to Softaculous menu, and install WordPress on your new subdomain. In my example, I need to install at my public_html/visitturkey.my

2. Identify your Hosting Nameserver

You can check your hosting nameserver at www.ip-adress.com. In my example, I want to link my visitturkey.my to my lankapo.com/visitturkey.my. So I need to find nameserver for my lankapo.com. So I need to enter lankapo.com on search box in www.ip-adress.com.

Find your nameserver and save it on  a notepad. Below is an example of my nameserver.

Find your name server

Second option, you can also get information about your nameserver from your hosting provider. Just write a support email to them. My Serverfreak replied my support email even at 3 am.

3. Modify Nameserver at myNIC

This is the tricky part, there are a few steps that you need to take before you can change myNIC nameserver to your domain nameserver.

a. Appoint a Technical Contact
First of all, you need to appoint yourself as a technical contact before you can change the nameserver of myNIC. (I will use my kitabpink.my domain as an example )
  • So you need to login to myNIC and select Domain Name, go to Modify Domain (Remember to find your contact code in myNIC email during registration. You need it to login to myNIC system)
  • Search your domain.my and select it
  • From the drop down menu, tick Appoint a New Technical Contact as picture below.
  •  Key in your contact code and click search icon. A list will appear, click your name and select button.
  • Next you will get a confirmation email, stated that you have been appointed as a New Technical Contact for your domain.

b. Modify Namerserver myNIC

To modify the nameserver, go to menu select again Modify Domain, Search your domain and make sure there is a green box on Technical Column like picture below.

  •  If not, you have to redo step a above.
  • After you select your domain with Technical Contact checked, a new menu will appear, Modify Name Servers will appear like below.
  • Tick Modify Name Servers and select Add / Remove / Change Name Server.
 Follow below steps and refer to above picture :
     1. Click search icon and a pop up browser will appear.
     2. Key in you nameserver from your notepad at [Name Server Hostname]
     3. Click search button
     4. Search Result will appear, click select button to change myNIC nameserver to your nameserver.
* Redo step 1 to 4 again and add the 2nd nameserver.
You will see your myNIC nameserver  change to your domain nameserver, slightly like my picture below :
** Double check your nameserver, then most importantly click Modify button to save changes that you have made. If not you have to redo back all steps above.
  • An email will be send to you to confirm that change have been made to your myNIC domain nameserver.

Final Step,

You have to wait 6 hours or up to 24 hours to allow your myNIC domain to propogate to your subdomain/wordpress blog.
Please be patient, in the mean time you can setup your wordpress blog first. Add beautiful theme and plugins.
After that, you can test your new domain.my on your browser. Good Luck

The Cheapest Way to Transfer Money to Overseas

Normally, for internationally money transfer, I would prefer  Western Union to send money from Turkey to Malaysia, as the fee is much cheaper compare to Telegraphic Transfer (TT).

I believe a lot of businessman and parents are looking for a cheaper way to send money abroad either to pay for product from oversea or paying their children university tuition fee..

Maybank has introduced a cheapest way to send money abroad by using M2U Visa Direct.

M2U Visa Direct enables Maybank2u customers to transfer money to any overseas issued debit, credit or prepaid Visa Cardholders via Maybank2u and Visa Network.

You can make a real time fund transfer for a flat service that cost RM 10 to more than 200 countries. However you can send money for FREE /waived from 4 November till 31 December 2014.

You can send to any overseas issued Visa cards worldwide. However, M2U Visa Direct is not available to Visa cards issued in only 8 countries i.e.

  1. Colombia
  2. Cuba
  3. Iran
  4. Israel
  5. USA
  6. Sudan
  7. Syria
  8. Venezuela.

Too bad USA is on the list, since a lot of Malaysian students are studying there. As for businessman you can always find other alternatives such as Singapore to buy your product. As nowadays, regional agent will take care all enquiries from ASEAN countries.

M2U Visa Direct

M2U Visa Direct Features

M2U Visa Direct Service is 24 hours x 7 days except during Maybank2u maintenance hours. Just make sure you have enough money in your Maybank account.

You can almost make a transfer on a real time directly to overseas Visa debit, credit and prepaid card accounts to more than 200 countries. The beneficiary has the option to use the funds directly at participating Visa merchants or cashing it out. No “hidden cost ” to beneficiary to receive the money.

 

My 2 cents

M2U is convenient and cheap way to send money to overseas. You don’t have to go to the bank to fill in forms and wait for your number like Telegraphic Transfer or Western Union.

However, due to the currency rate for Ringgit is worsening right now maybe its not the best time to send your money abroad.

How To Wire Transfer Google Adsense Payment to Local Bank in Malaysia

Yes, good news for Adsense Publisher here in Malaysia.
You can wire transfer your income straight to your bank, either Maybank or CIMB bank. It may take 3 days working days but still you can save money and time then going to the bank for cashing out Adsense income using Western Union.

 

Split Adsense Payment

Plus, Western Union maximum cash out  is  only USD 2700. How do I know ? I read from Adsense Forum above ,  a Malaysian guy asked why his Adsense payment is pending.  Adsense Publisher explained that it is  better to use Wire Bank transfer because it just need one transaction only. Rather than using Western Union Quick Cash that need to split to 4 transactions due to the limitation. He make USD 9000 per month with Adsense. Can you believe that.

So making money with Adsense is not a big deal to him. He only cares about how to cash out the money. If only if I make that kind of money with Adsense, Google can send my money anyway that they want 🙂 .

How To Change Payment Setting to Bank Wire Transfer

1. Log in to you Adsense Account and go to Payment Setting
click manage

2. Click Manage at How do you get paid section

3. Click Add a new payment method
Adsense Payment Setting

4. Click Wire Transfer to Bank Account

add new payment method

5. Fill in your name, bank account number and swift bank number. Refer here of your local bank swift bank number.

Swift code is a standard format of Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) and it is unique identification code for a particular bank.

fill in bank information

This payment method is really a big relief to me. Since I am here in Turkey and Google Adsense income payment using Western Union is not supported here. So with Bank Wire Transfer I can save money and time to the bank. Thank you Google.
