Free Domain Name Registration

A domain name - that was what I needed for my yet-to-be-developed website. I had it all figured out. I had a web design and web content plan, I was aware that I required a Linux-based web hosting solution and that I needed to register a domain.

Asking Around Conveys Results

My main quandary was what domain to select for my site. It had to be easy-to-memorize, catchy, and, well, free to register! I examined quite a few till I found one that had not been registered yet, but then I spotted the excessive price, as I had picked a .co.uk domain name. These country-specific domain names are obviously more costly than the widespread .com, .net, .org, etc. Top-Level Domains. With my tight allowance, I just forsake that idea and started contemplating finding another web hosting vendor. I revealed my plan to virtually everybody I could think of who had a clue about websites and the Internet in general, so a friend of mine showed me the web site NTChosting.com and told me: "Voilà! Moderately priced web site hosting packages! And a free domain name registration!"

I Discovered My Web Hosting Plans Provider! Hurray!

Needless to mention, in the beginning I presumed that he was joking, but he wasn't. These fellows from NTChosting.com provide moderate web hosting plans - on shared web hosting servers, which does not appear to be a concern when it comes to small and medium-size web sites. What is more, they are based in the United Kingdom, and have servers in Britain. Well, not only - but also in the United States, Sweden and Australia, but what I wanted was a United Kingdom-based solution anyway. The greatest benefit, however, is that they offer a cost-free domain name if you register for a year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That does not refer to .co.uk domains, regrettably, since they are registered for a period of 2 years by default, but .com, .net, .de, .eu and several other domain names come free of cost, so how could I ignore this free offering?

I'm Pleased With My New Web Hosting Services Provider!

With the free domain registration and their affordable domain and hosting package prices, these chaps persuaded me. I did register and even found a software tool that could assist me to create my site - it is called Site Studio. A website building tool with - I did try calculating but lost count! - more than seventy site layouts suitable for both business and personal web pages. Now, isn't that terrific? And the bonuses do not stop there! I am one fortunate girl! Now, enough babble from me, I should proceed with the creation of my web site magnum opus!
