Happy 8th Birthday, RK.md!

Today marks the 8th birthday of my site’s current domain name! My journey started back in the mid-2000s with rishi-kumar.com originally hosted by Dot5Hosting. I transitioned to a Bluehost shared hosting account on September 18, 2008. Back then I was blogging fairly regularly about politics, tech, and the medical school interview journey as an undergraduate student. At that time, my site was dubbed: “RK-home.”

Several months later, I acquired my rk.md domain on November 23, 2008 and changed my site’s name to reflect the new domain. Most recently, I left Bluehost for Siteground on June 13, 2015 and haven’t looked back since then! 馃檪

Earlier this month, I also acquired rishi.doctor.聽Now I have both rishimd.com and rishi.doctor as “parked domains” for rk.md.

  1. I also left another hosting provider for SiteGround, and (to borrow your words) I haven’t looked back! Service is great, and site speed was instantly boosted upon transitioning over.
