Website and Brand History


My website (English🇬🇧 only version) was built🛠️ on 14 February 2019.

Since I didn't determine the topics for my website, the website name used to be my English name: Ken Deng, using the domain name

It used to be my personal hybrid blog📑 and its main purpose is to communicate💬 with English speakers, sharing the following topics:

  • my travelling✈️ routes,
  • computer programming🧑‍💻,
  • teach foreigners to use Chinese🇨🇳 high-tech (apps📱 and services) (e.g. Guangzhou Metro Transit QR Code),
  • (etc.)

I firstly built my website on because many people use WordPress to build their personal website.

Then, I migrated my website to GoDaddy due to the restrictions🚧 of the previous provider.

However, some Chinese users, including my schoolmates, complained that my website was slow🐢, because of the limited overseas network.

Later on, I have added Chinese🇨🇳 (简体中文) version on my website, providing an opportunity🔑 for audiences to learn/practise Chinese.


On August 2020, I migrated my website to a China server🗃️ with the host Tencent Cloud, which improves my website speed💨 and reduces loading time.

On September 2020, since my scores were rocketed⬆️ (later 2019) and I overtook others, I detemined📍 and changed my topics: productive study✍️ tips, tools and habits.

So, I changed my brand name to Ken's Study Journey with a new domain name


On February 2021, I have made Ken's Study Planner🗓️ (web🌎 version, named "Personal Management" at that time).

The Planner has then opened📤 publicly on July 2021.

At the end of 2021, as part of EPQ Project🔬, I have attempted🛠️ IPv6 on my website, as well as enabling 5G💨 by increasing server Internet bandwidth🚧, supporting the latest technology🔗 development.


In 2022, I migrated🔄 my server to Alibaba Cloud.

I have also added an extra server in the UK🇬🇧 using Vultr to boost website speed💨 at different places.

I had 2 servers in total at that time, all of which have IPv6 enabled.


On April 2023, I have attempted China ICP Registration🪪 for my website and it was successful✅.

The registration number is 粤ICP备2023036527号 and you can see it at the bottom⬇️.

I then have migrated🔄 my main server to Guangzhou, China🇨🇳 (mainland), along with some Vultr servers (in Singapore🇸🇬 and London, UK🇬🇧) to attract nearby visitors.

The domain name has been changed to

This is because:

  • The Data Breach🔐 problem on some foreign Internet plaforms is severe⚠️ in recent years.
    (see Firefox Monitor for more information)
  • Most visitors🧑‍💻 (and users on Ken's Study Planner) come from China.
