Free Domain Name
A domain name - that was what I needed for my future website. I had it all figured out. I got a web design and web content strategy, I was aware that I required a Linux-based hosting solution and that I had to register a domain.
Asking Around Conveys Results
My principal dilemma was what domain name to select for my website. It had to be memorable, catchy, and, well, free to register! I examined quite a few before I came across one that was free to register, but then I spotted the shocking price, as I had settled on a .co.uk domain. These country-code top-level domain names are clearly more expensive than the popular .com, .net, .org, etc. domain names. With my constrained allowance, I just surrendered that idea and started contemplating discovering another web hosting solutions provider. I shared my plan with practically everyone I knew who had a clue about websites and the web in general, so a buddy of mine presented to me the website NTChosting.com and said: "Here you go! Reasonably priced web site hosting packages! And a cost-free domain!"
I Discovered My Hosting Solutions Provider! Yippee!
Needless to say, initially I thought that he was joking, but he wasn't. These guys from NTC Hosting deliver discounted hosting plans - on shared hosting servers, which does not appear to be a problem for small and medium-size sites. Besides, they are based in the UK, and have hosting servers in England. Well, not only - but also in the United States of America, Sweden and Australia, but what I was looking for was a United Kingdom-based solution anyhow. The biggest advantage, though, is that they give you a free domain name if you sign up for 1 year rather than paying on a monthly basis! That is not valid for .co.uk domains, regrettably, since they are registered for a period of two years by default, but .com, .net, .info, .org and a few other domain names are offered for free, so how could I ignore this free offer?
I'm Happy With My New Hosting Accounts Provider!
With the free domain registration and their moderate domain name and web hosting plan prices, these blokes convinced me. I did register and even received a software tool that could help me create my site - it is called Site Studio. A web site building tool with - I did attempt counting but lost count! - more than seventy site skins suitable for both commercial and personal web portals. Now, isn't that marvelous? And the bonuses continue! I am one lucky girl! Now, enough chatter from me, I should proceed with the creation of my website work of art!
