What is VPS Hosting?

Free Domain

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

Asking Around Brings Results

My main dilemma was what domain name to select for my site. It had to be easy-to-remember, catchy, and, well, free to register! 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 selected a .co.uk domain. These country-code domains are obviously more costly than the common .com, .net, .org, etc. domains. With my meager budget, I just renounced that idea and started contemplating discovering a new hosting services provider. I revealed my intention to virtually everyone I was acquainted with who had a clue about web sites and the World Wide Web in general, so a friend of mine showed me the site NTChosting.com and said: "Here you go! Cut-price web hosting plans! And a free domain!"

I Found My Web Hosting Packages Provider! Hurrah!

Needless to mention, in the beginning I presumed that he was kidding, but he wasn't. These blokes from NTChosting offer moderate hosting plans - on shared servers, which does not seem to be a problem for small and mid-size websites. What is more, they are based in the UK, and have web servers in the UK. Well, not only - but also in America, Sweden and Australia, but what I was searching for was a United Kingdom-based hosting solution anyhow. The biggest asset, though, is that they give you a free-of-cost domain name if you sign up for a year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That does not apply to .co.uk domain names, regrettably, because they are registered for a period of 2 years by default, but .com, .net, .de, .org and several other domain names are available for free, so how could I resist this free offer?

I'm Enjoying My New Hosting Services Provider!

With the free domain name registration and their cut-rate domain name and web hosting package prices, these chaps enticed me. I did sign up and even came across a software tool that could help me build my web site - it is called Site Studio. A site builder with - I did try counting but lost count! - more than seventy web page themes suitable for both business and personal websites. Now, isn't that fabulous? And the bonuses do not stop there! I am one lucky girl! Now, enough chatter from me, I should proceed with the making of my web site magnum opus!
