Free Domain Name

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

Asking Around Brings Results

My main dilemma was what domain to pick for my website. It had to be easy-to-remember, catchy, and, well, free to register! I examined quite a few before I found one that had not been registered yet, but then I noticed the shocking price, as I had chosen a .co.uk domain. These country-specific Top-Level Domains are apparently more expensive than the popular .com, .net, .org, etc. TLDs. With my meager budget, I just forsake that idea and began considering finding a new hosting packages provider. I shared my intention with practically everybody I knew who had a clue about websites and the Internet in general, so a buddy of mine showed me the web site NTChosting.com and exclaimed: "Voilà! Cut-rate website hosting packages! And a free-of-charge domain name!"

I Found My Host! Hurray!

Needless to mention, at first I presumed that he was kidding, but he wasn't. These blokes from NTC Hosting furnish budget web hosting packages - on shared web hosting servers, which does not seem to be a problem for small and medium-sized websites. Additionally, they are United Kingdom-based, and have web servers in Great Britain. Well, not only - but also in North America, Sweden and Australia, but what I required was a United Kingdom-based hosting solution anyway. The greatest bonus, though, is that they offer a free domain name if you register for 1 year rather than paying on a monthly basis! That does not refer to .co.uk domains, regrettably, as they are registered for a two-year period by default, but .com, .net, .biz, .org and several more domain names are available free of cost, so how could I neglect this free offering?

I'm Enjoying My New Hosting Plans Provider!

With the free domain name registration and their cheap domain name and hosting plan prices, these guys tempted me. I did sign up and even obtained a software tool that could assist me to build my website - it is called Site Studio. A web site building tool with - I did try calculating but lost count! - over 70 web design layouts suitable for both business and personal web portals. Well, isn't that fantastic? And the bonuses do not stop there! I am one lucky girl! Well, enough babble from me, I should proceed with the making of my web site work of art!
