Free Domain Name
A domain name - that was what I needed for my yet-to-be-created site. I had it all worked out in my mind. I had a website design and textual, visual and aural content idea, I knew that I needed a Linux-based hosting solution and that I needed to register a domain.
Asking Around Conveys Results
My principal dilemma was what domain to select for my website. It had to be easy-to-memorize, attractive, and, well, available for registration! I examined quite a few till I came across one that had not been registered yet, but then I noticed the exorbitant price, since I had settled on a .co.uk domain name. These country-specific Top-Level Domains are apparently more expensive than the widespread .com, .net, .org, etc. top-level domain names. With my deficient allowance, I simply abandoned that idea and started contemplating discovering a new web hosting plans provider. I disclosed my intention to almost everybody I was acquainted with who got an idea about web sites and the web in general, so an acquaintance of mine presented to me the website NTChosting.com and exclaimed: "There you go! Moderately priced web site hosting packages! And a free-of-cost domain name!"
I Found My Web Hosting Solutions Provider! Hurray!
Needless to mention, initially I presumed that he was kidding, but he wasn't. These blokes from NTC Hosting supply inexpensive web hosting packages - on shared servers, which does not seem to be a problem for small and average-size websites. Moreover, they are United Kingdom-based, and have web servers in Great Britain. Well, not only - but also in the United States, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I wanted was a United Kingdom-based solution anyhow. The biggest bonus, though, is that they give you a free domain name if you register for one year rather than paying on a monthly basis! That is not valid for .co.uk domain names, regrettably, as they are registered for a two-year period by default, but .com, .net, .org, .biz and a few more domain names are offered for free, so how could I resist this free offering?
I'm Satisfied With My New Web Hosting Solutions Provider!
With the free domain registration and their reasonable domain name and hosting plan prices, these fellows enticed me. I did register and even found a software tool that could help me create my website - its name is Site Studio. A web site builder with - I did try calculating but lost count! - over seventy web page skins excellent for both business and personal web sites. Now, isn't that magnificent? And the bonuses continue! I am one fortunate girl! Now, enough chatter from me, I should proceed with the creation of my website magnum opus!
