Free Domain Name

A domain - that was what I required for my yet-to-be-built website. I had it all worked out in my head. I got a website design and website content plan, I was aware that I needed a Linux-based web hosting service and that I had to register a domain name.

Asking Around Conveys Results

My biggest quandary 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 shocking price, since I had chosen a .co.uk domain name. These country-code top-level domain names are clearly more expensive than the common .com, .net, .org, etc. domain names. With my constrained allowance, I just relinquished that idea and started considering discovering another website hosting plans provider. I revealed my plan to virtually everybody I knew who got an idea about web sites and the World Wide Web in general, so a buddy of mine showed me the web site NTChosting.com and said: "Voilà! Affordable website hosting packages! And a free-of-charge domain!"

I Discovered My Web Host! Hurray!

It goes without saying that at first I presumed that he was kidding, but he wasn't. These blokes from NTCHosting deliver moderate web hosting plans - on shared servers, which does not seem to be a problem for small and medium-size web sites. Also, they are based in the United Kingdom, and have servers in Britain. Well, not only - but also in America, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I required was a United Kingdom-based web hosting solution anyway. The biggest bonus, though, is that they give you a free domain name if you register for one year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That does not apply to .co.uk domains, unfortunately, as they are registered for a two-year period by default, but .com, .net, .info, .eu and a few other domains are available for free, so how could I resist this free offer?

I'm Happy With My New Web Hosting Provider!

With the free domain name registration and their cut-rate domain and web hosting plan prices, these chaps won me over. I did register and even obtained a software tool that could help me create my web site - its name is Site Studio. A web site building tool with - I did try calculating but lost count! - more than 70 web page skins suitable for both business and personal web pages. Well, isn't that fabulous? And the bonuses continue! I am one lucky girl! Now, enough jabber from me, I should continue with the creation of my website magnum opus!
