Free Domain Name Registration

A domain name - that was what I needed for my yet-to-be-launched web site. I had it all figured out. I got a website design and website content plan, I was aware that I needed a Linux website hosting solution and that I had to register a domain.

Asking Around Provides Results

My main dilemma was what domain to choose for my web site. It had to be memorable, attractive, and, well, available for registration! I went through quite a few until I came across one that was available for registration, but then I spotted the exorbitant price, as I had chosen a .co.uk domain name. These country-code Top-Level Domains are obviously more expensive than the popular .com, .net, .org, etc. top-level domain names. With my lean budget, I simply relinquished that idea and started considering finding a new hosting plans provider. I disclosed my idea to practically everyone I knew who had a clue about web sites and the Internet in general, so a friend of mine presented to me the website Lonex.com and exclaimed: "Here you go! Inexpensive web hosting plans! And a free domain!"

I Found My Web Hosting Solutions Provider! Hurray!

Needless to say, in the beginning I presumed that he was joking, but he wasn't. These blokes from LONEX supply modest website hosting plans - on shared web hosting servers, which does not appear to be a problem for small and medium-size websites. What is more, they are UK-based, and have web hosting servers in Great Britain. Well, not only - but also in the United States of America, Scandinavia and Australia, but what I required was a United Kingdom-based web hosting solution anyhow. The biggest perk, however, is that they offer a free domain name registration if you sign up for one year instead of paying on a monthly basis! That does not apply to .co.uk domain names, unfortunately, as they are registered for a two-year period by default, but .com, .net, .info, .eu and several more domain names come for free, so how could I ignore this free offering?

I'm Happy With My New Hosting Services Provider!

With the free domain name registration and their cheap domain name and web hosting package prices, these blokes persuaded me. I did sign up and even obtained a tool that could help me build my website - it is called Site Studio. A web site builder with - I did try calculating but lost count! - more than seventy web design layouts suitable for both commercial and personal web pages. Now, isn't that astonishing? And the bonuses continue! I am one lucky girl! Now, enough twaddle from me, I should continue with the creation of my website masterpiece!
