Free Domain Name

A domain - that was what I required for my yet-to-be-created site. I had it all figured out. I had a website design and website content idea, I was aware that I required a Linux-based web site hosting service and that I needed to register a domain.

Asking Around Conveys Results

My principal dilemma was what domain name to choose 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 had not been registered yet, but then I noticed the shocking price, since I had chosen a .co.uk domain. These country-code TLDs are clearly more expensive than the popular .com, .net, .org, etc. top-level domain names. With my meager budget, I simply renounced that idea and started contemplating finding a new web hosting provider. I disclosed my plan to virtually everyone I knew who had an idea about websites and the web in general, so an acquaintance of mine presented to me the web site Lonex.com and told me: "Here you go! Cut-price website hosting packages! And a free domain name!"

I Found My Hosting Solutions Provider! Yay!

Needless to say, at first I thought that he was kidding, but he wasn't. These chaps from LONEX.COM provide reasonable hosting packages - on shared web hosting servers, which does not seem to be a problem for small and average-sized web sites. Besides, they are United Kingdom-based, and have hosting servers in Britain. Well, not only - but also in America, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I required was a United Kingdom-based solution anyway. The biggest perk, however, is that they offer a free-of-cost domain name if you sign up for one year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That is not valid for .co.uk domain names, regrettably, since they are registered for a 2-year period by default, but .com, .net, .de, .biz and a few other domains come for free, so how could I ignore this free offer?

I'm Enjoying My New Hosting Plans Provider!

With the free domain registration and their budget domain and hosting package prices, these guys attracted 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 attempt counting but lost count! - more than seventy web page skins suitable for both commercial and personal web sites. Now, isn't that astonishing? And the bonuses continue! I am one lucky lady! Now, enough jabber from me, I should proceed with the making of my web site work of art!
