Like how important water is for fish, salt for any dish, the same holds good for the writers regards to their weapons, the pens. In between everyone knows that the pen is mightier than the sword & that’s why the print media is taking everyone for a toss.

All you people, who want a name online,
You are in loss if you haven’t heard about BigRock.
Now that you have, you’ll be fine.

So the dream of having a domain for me is finally coming true with BigRock. But I had to sure about the company that provides me the web-presence & hence I had a small chat with Sujas from BigRock and this is what he had to say.
