Free Domain Name Registration

A domain name - that was what I required for my future website. I had it all figured out. I had a website design and website content idea, I was aware that I required a Linux website hosting solution and that I needed to register a domain.

Asking Around Conveys Results

My principal quandary was what domain name to choose for my web site. It had to be easy-to-remember, attractive, and, well, free to register! I examined quite a few till I found one that was free to register, but then I saw the excessive price, as I had opted for a .co.uk domain name. These country-specific top-level domain names are obviously more expensive than the popular .com, .net, .org, etc. domains. With my slender allowance, I simply ditched that idea and began considering discovering another web hosting solutions provider. I shared my plan with virtually everyone I could think of who got a clue about websites and the web in general, so an acquaintance of mine showed me the site Lonex.com and said: "There you go! Affordable hosting plans! And a free domain name registration!"

I Found My Web Hosting Solutions Provider! Yippee!

Needless to say, at first I thought that he was kidding, but he wasn't. These chaps from Lonex offer moderate web hosting packages - on shared web hosting servers, which does not appear to be a concern when it comes to small and mid-sized sites. Also, they are UK-based, and have web servers in Britain. Well, not only - but also in the US, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I was searching for was a United Kingdom-based web hosting solution anyway. The biggest asset, however, is that they offer a cost-free domain if you register for a year rather than paying on a monthly basis! That does not refer to .co.uk domains, regrettably, as they are registered for a 2-year period by default, but .com, .net, .eu, .info and several more domain names are offered free of cost, so how could I turn down this free offer?

I'm Pleased With My New Hosting Plans Provider!

With the free domain name registration and their reasonable domain and web hosting plan prices, these chaps lured me. I did register and even found a software tool that could help me build my site - it is called Site Studio. A website builder with - I did try calculating but lost count! - more than seventy site skins excellent for both business and personal web sites. Now, isn't that superb? And the bonuses do not stop there! I am one fortunate lady! Well, enough babble from me, I should continue with the making of my web site work of art!
