A domain - that was what I required for my yet-to-be-developed website. I had it all worked out in my mind. I had a web design and textual, visual and aural content strategy, I knew that I required a Linux web hosting solution and that I needed to register a domain name.
Asking Around Brings Results
My main quandary was what domain name to select for my website. It had to be easy-to-remember, attractive, and, well, available for registration! I examined quite a few till I came across one that was available for registration, but then I saw the excessive price, as I had opted for a .co.uk domain name. These country-code domains are clearly more expensive than the popular .com, .net, .org, etc. TLDs. With my scarce allowance, I just ditched that idea and began contemplating discovering another website hosting packages provider. I disclosed my idea to virtually everybody I was acquainted with who had an idea about web sites and the World Wide Web in general, so a comrade of mine showed me the web site NTChosting.com and exclaimed: "Here you go! Modestly priced web site hosting packages! And a free domain!"
I Found My Web Hosting Solutions Provider! Yippee!
Needless to say, initially I thought that he was joking, but he wasn't. These guys from NTC Hosting furnish cheap hosting packages - on shared servers, which does not appear to be a problem for small and mid-size web sites. Besides, they are United Kingdom-based, and have hosting servers in Britain. Well, not only - but also in the United States, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I required was a UK-based hosting solution anyway. The greatest bonus, though, is that they offer a charge-free domain if you register for 1 year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That does not refer to .co.uk domain names, regrettably, because they are registered for a period of 2 years by default, but .com, .net, .de, .biz and several more domain names are available for free, so how could I resist this free offer?
I'm Pleased With My New Hosting Plans Provider!
With the free domain name registration and their inexpensive domain and hosting plan prices, these fellows lured me. I did sign up and even got a software tool that could help me build my website - it is called Site Studio. A site builder with - I did attempt calculating but lost count! - more than seventy web site layouts suitable for both corporate and personal web sites. Now, isn't that stunning? And the bonuses do not stop there! I am one lucky lady! Well, enough prattle from me, I should proceed with the making of my website masterpiece!
