Free Domain Name
A domain - that was what I needed for my yet-to-be-built site. I had it all figured out. I had a website design and web content idea, I knew that I required a Linux-based website hosting solution and that I had to register a domain name.
Asking Around Provides Results
My biggest dilemma was what domain name to select for my site. It had to be easy-to-remember, attractive, and, well, free to register! I examined quite a few till I discovered one that was available for registration, but then I noticed the excessive price, as I had picked a .co.uk domain. These country-specific domains are apparently more costly than the popular .com, .net, .org, etc. top-level domain names. With my lean allowance, I just abandoned that idea and began contemplating finding another hosting services provider. I revealed my plan to almost everybody I was acquainted with who had a clue about web sites and the web in general, so a comrade of mine presented to me the website NTChosting.com and exclaimed: "There you go! Modestly priced web site hosting packages! And a charge-free domain name!"
I Found My Web Hosting Accounts Provider! Yippee!
It goes without saying that initially I presumed that he was joking, but he wasn't. These guys from NTC Hosting provide budget web hosting packages - on shared hosting servers, which does not appear to be a concern when it comes to small and mid-size websites. Besides, they are based in the United Kingdom, and have hosting servers in the UK. Well, not only - but also in North America, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I needed was a United Kingdom-based web hosting solution anyhow. The greatest asset, though, is that they offer a free domain name if you sign up for one year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That does not refer to .co.uk domains, regrettably, because they are registered for a period of two years by default, but .com, .net, .org, .info and a few more domains come free of charge, so how could I resist this free offer?
I'm Pleased With My New Web Hosting Accounts Provider!
With the free domain registration and their cut-rate domain name and hosting package prices, these blokes convinced me. I did sign up and even found a software tool that could assist me to create my web site - it is called Site Studio. A website builder with - I did try calculating but lost count! - over seventy templates excellent for both commercial and personal websites. Well, isn't that magnificent? And the bonuses continue! I am one lucky lady! Well, enough prattle from me, I should continue with the making of my web site masterpiece!
