Picking out a name for a domain is one tough job. It took me and Hazelyn sama days and days to finally think of a good name. Finally, I came to the conclusion of naming it Jukkou.
But why the word Jukkou and what does it mean? Jukkou is japanese for "reflection", to reflect or to think of something repeadetly. I always tend to think things over and over again, so I decided that it was a good idea for the name to have something to do with me.
Hence, Jukkou was the best option: its short, a Japanese word ^^, and describes one of the things I tend to do a lot. ^_^

Here are all the events that inspired and hence are guilty for the creation of this domain. XP Also I would like to add that this section has a lot of thanks for a very special person who made this domain possible.
I started my desire to make sites when I started learning how to use links in a powerpoint presentation. My friend Daniel made a presentation using characters from Sailor Moon Stars, and then on I got inspired to try myself and created a Rurouni Kenshin presentation. At that time, those were sites for me until I found Microsoft Publisher.
I made several pages, of course that none of them were online, and filled my computer with lots and lots of pages that I could only look at on my pc. Then I found out that Yahoo! hosted its members in Geocities. I had no html knowledge whatsoever, so I started out using the Yahoo! Page builder, which is a good tool when you're barely starting and have no clue of html. As time went by, my little sites didn't look so bad even though they had no layout, they were just decorated with images.
My first site to be online was my Inuyasha shrine, Shrine of Springtime Memories. Looking at my guestbook one day I noticed someone had left a very nice comment and visited their site. It turned out to be a blog, at that time I had very little knowledge of what a blog was though. o^_^o This site even inspired the creation of my own blog, but little did I know of what would happen next.
A wonderful thing happened, I became friends with the webmistress of that site and I was so happy to have found a friend who liked the same anime, and was a webmistress too. Hazelyn sama
Hazelyn sama later purchased a domain called Serene-Ambience.net, and she invited me to join her domain by having my sites hosted there. All of my sites, which were 6 at the time, were hosted at Serene-ambience.net, which was our dear home for a very good while. Later on, I had some problems and was sure I would be without an internet connection.
Hazelyn sama did the greatest most sweetest gesture, she told me she would find a good hosting plan for me so I could have a domain of my own. And she did!! Thanks to Hazelyn sama, I have Jukkou.net, she was so sweet and wonderful to give me this domain, its one of the most amazing things anyone has ever done for me. I thank her from the bottom of my heart. ^_^
Jukkou.net was born February 06, 2005 through Dreamhost.com . We started with 2 sites while the others were still hosted at Serene-Ambience due to fanlisting databases that are a bit of trouble to move. Now, Jukkou has 38 sites in total in it's network.
