Asking Around Brings Results
My biggest dilemma was what domain 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 till I discovered one that was free to register, but then I spotted the excessive price, as I had chosen a .co.uk domain name. These country-code domains are obviously more costly than the common .com, .net, .org, etc. domains. With my restricted allowance, I just renounced that idea and began considering finding another web hosting plans provider. I revealed my plan to virtually everybody I knew who got an idea about web sites and the Internet in general, so an acquaintance of mine presented to me the web site NTChosting.com and told me: "Here you go! Affordably priced web site hosting plans! And a free domain name registration!"
I Found My Hosting Accounts Provider! Yay!
Needless to mention, initially I presumed that he was kidding, but he wasn't. These fellows from NTC Hosting offer cut-rate web hosting plans - on shared hosting servers, which does not seem to be a problem for small and mid-size websites. Additionally, they are UK-based, and have web servers in Great Britain. Well, not only - but also in the USA, Sweden and Australia, but what I was searching for was a UK-based hosting solution anyhow. The biggest asset, though, is that they offer a free-of-cost domain if you sign up for 1 year rather than paying on a monthly basis! That does not apply to .co.uk domain names, regrettably, because they are registered for a 2-year period by default, but .com, .net, .eu, .biz and several other domain names are available free of charge, so how could I disregard this free offering?
I'm Happy With My New Hosting Packages Provider!
With the free domain name registration and their budget domain name and web hosting package prices, these chaps seduced me. I did sign up and even got a software tool that could assist me to build my site - its name is Site Studio. A site building tool with - I did attempt counting but lost count! - over 70 web design themes suitable for both commercial and personal sites. Well, isn't that stunning? And the bonuses continue! I am one lucky lady! Well, enough prattle from me, I should continue with the creation of my website work of art!
