Asking Around Gives Results
My main quandary was what domain name to select for my website. It had to be easy-to-remember, attractive, and, well, free to register! I examined quite a few till I found one that was available for registration, but then I spotted the exorbitant price, since I had opted for a .co.uk domain. These country-code Top-Level Domains are obviously more expensive than the widespread .com, .net, .org, etc. top-level domain names. With my slender budget, I just relinquished that idea and began considering finding a new website hosting distributor. I disclosed my plan to virtually everybody I knew 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 told me: "There you go! Cheap hosting packages! And a free domain name!"
I Found My Hosting Plans Provider! Yippee!
Needless to say, in the beginning I presumed that he was joking, but he wasn't. These fellows from NTC Hosting supply inexpensive web hosting packages - on shared web hosting servers, which does not appear to be a problem for small and average-size web sites. In addition, they are United Kingdom-based, and have hosting servers in Britain. Well, not only - but also in North America, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I needed was a United Kingdom-based hosting solution anyhow. The biggest benefit, however, is that they offer a charge-free domain name if you sign up for a year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That is not valid for .co.uk domain names, regrettably, because they are registered for a 2-year period by default, but .com, .net, .info, .org and several more domain names come for free, so how could I disregard this free offering?
I'm Happy With My New Hosting Plans Provider!
With the free domain name registration and their discounted domain name and hosting package prices, these chaps lured me. I did sign up and even came across a software tool that could help me build my web site - its name is Site Studio. A web site building tool with - I did try counting but lost count! - over 70 web site themes excellent for both commercial and personal web sites. Well, isn't that superb? And the bonuses continue! I am one lucky lady! Now, enough babble from me, I should proceed with the creation of my web site work of art!
