Asking Around Conveys Results
My biggest dilemma was what domain name to pick for my web site. It had to be easy-to-memorize, catchy, and, well, available for registration! I went through quite a few before I came across one that had not been registered yet, but then I noticed the shocking price, as I had chosen a .co.uk domain name. These country-code domain names are clearly more costly than the common .com, .net, .org, etc. domain names. With my exiguous budget, I simply gave up that idea and started contemplating finding a new web hosting solutions provider. I revealed my idea to virtually everyone I knew who got an idea about websites and the Internet in general, so a buddy of mine showed me the web site NTChosting.com and exclaimed: "Voilà! Cheap web site hosting plans! And a free domain!"
I Found My Hosting Services Provider! Yay!
It goes without saying that initially I presumed that he was kidding, but he wasn't. These fellows from NTChosting provide discounted web hosting plans - on shared servers, which does not seem to be a concern when it comes to small and mid-size sites. Besides, they are based in the UK, and have web servers in Great Britain. Well, not only - but also in the US, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I was looking for was a United Kingdom-based web hosting solution anyhow. The biggest perquisite, however, is that they offer a free-of-charge domain if you register for one year rather than paying on a monthly basis! That is not valid for .co.uk domain names, regrettably, as they are registered for a two-year period by default, but .com, .net, .org, .eu and several other domains are available free of charge, so how could I neglect this free offering?
I'm Pleased With My New Hosting Packages Provider!
With the free domain name registration and their budget domain and hosting package prices, these fellows attracted me. I did register and even obtained a software tool that could assist me to create my web site - it is called Site Studio. A website builder with - I did attempt calculating but lost count! - more than 70 design skins suitable for both business and personal web pages. Now, isn't that fantastic? And the bonuses continue! I am one fortunate lady! Well, enough chatter from me, I should continue with the creation of my website masterpiece!
