Free Domain Name

A domain name - that was what I needed for my yet-to-be-set-up web site. I had it all worked out in my head. I got a web design and web content strategy, I knew that I needed a Linux web site hosting service and that I had to register a domain name.

Asking Around Conveys Results

My biggest dilemma was what domain name to pick for my web site. It had to be easy-to-remember, attractive, and, well, available for registration! I examined quite a few until I came across one that was available for registration, but then I saw the shocking price, as I had picked a .co.uk domain. These country-specific TLDs are obviously more expensive than the popular .com, .net, .org, etc. TLDs. With my tight budget, I simply ditched that idea and began contemplating discovering another website hosting plans provider. I disclosed my plan to virtually everybody I knew who got an idea about web sites and the Internet in general, so an acquaintance of mine showed me the website NTChosting.com and exclaimed: "Voilà! Moderately priced web site hosting packages! And a free domain name!"

I Found My Web Hosting Services Provider! Hurrah!

It goes without saying that initially I thought that he was joking, but he wasn't. These chaps from NTC Hosting supply cut-rate web hosting plans - on shared hosting servers, which does not seem to be a problem for small and average-size web sites. What is more, they are United Kingdom-based, and have hosting servers in Britain. Well, not only - but also in the US, Sweden and Australia, but what I required was a UK-based hosting solution anyhow. The biggest perquisite, however, is that they offer a cost-free domain name if you register for one year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That does not refer to .co.uk domains, unfortunately, because they are registered for a 2-year period by default, but .com, .net, .de, .eu and several more domains come free of cost, so how could I neglect this free offering?

I'm Pleased With My New Hosting Provider!

With the free domain name registration and their discounted domain and hosting plan prices, these fellows won me over. I did register and even obtained a software tool that could assist me to build my web site - it is called Site Studio. A site building tool with - I did attempt calculating but lost count! - more than seventy website themes excellent for both business and personal web pages. Well, isn't that impressive? And the bonuses continue! I am one fortunate lady! Well, enough prattle from me, I should proceed with the making of my website masterpiece!
