After more than a year, I have finally got my site up and running with a design that I really like!
Before this current version of the site, the website was a simple one page layout that I had designed in Photoshop with sections similar to this website.
I moved away from my old design because I have been able to further my knowledge in web design and web development. And the new version of Mitesh.xyz, is me, putting my new knowledge and skills to good use.
I have been planning a redesign for a while (like at least the past 3 months). But only recently I have had a bit of free time these past few weeks to get it done, so in the afternoons, after getting home from work I have been spending my hours getting this layout just right!
Why (dot) X Y Z?
Why not? haha.
But seriously, I did attempt to have mitesh.com – but it was already taken. I did used to use MitzShah.com (Mitz being a nickname I have gone by since I was a child to family and close friends).
But I wanted to go for a more professional approach to back my new start in life in the USA. So a month or so before moving to the states I began looking for different domain names I could use and I ended up purchasing Mitesh.co as it was similar to .com and it was available.
As I was checking out of my GoDaddy account and scrolling through all the available possibilities very close to the bottom of the list, where no body usually looks, .xyz caught my attention as it was different, and I believe it is different enough to stand out as it’s not your average domain extension.
So I purchased Mitesh.xyz and the more I thought about it, the more I preferred it over the popular .com or .net etc.
Here is what the old website looked like for anyone who is curious!
