I went ahead and took the plunge! Our family has a new domain!
If you go to folkes.me, I just made a pretty lame looking landing page.
I debated doing danfolk.es, but I wanted micaela and all of our other children and animals to have the ability to have subdomains. So, I look forward to making a fat cat homepage at pyro.folkes.me.
I setup a free account with CloudFlair too! It should increase speed and reduce server load. I need this because all of this is hosted on a free hosting account at Freehostia (I love Freehostia).
