This website is now available at both www.swaroopch.com and www.swaroopch.info. Officially, my website is now www.swaroopch.com.

Why? Because the iPhone has a ".com" button on its keypad.

Well, there's another reason too. It's because the .info domain was registered a long time ago by a sponsor when I was a student (and I couldn't afford it myself), and now I'm not able to convince the sponsor to transfer the domain name to me. So, as a backup option, I registered the .com name and both web addresses are now equivalent.

To sum it up, if some day the .info domain is not reachable, try the .com one.

@Atul: I so did not know about usefulness of a 301 redirect, thanks, I'll start there first.

Swaroop says:

@PizzaDude: The URLs are going to keep working, but it would be better to resubscribe, just change the URL of the feed from '.info' to '.com' :)

PizzaDude says:

Will I have to re-subscribe to the RSS feeds ?

Atul Chitnis says:

Put in a permanent 301 redirect to the .com domain from the .info domain RIGHT NOW. Inform all people subscribed to your RSS feed as well, so that they link to the feed from the .com site.

In no time, the .info domain will become irrelevant.

Congrats on .com. .com rocks anytime
