Domain Names

Over to y'all i think for this one....

I have created a webpage in Microsoft FrontPage today. I now wanna put this onto the net but to do this I wanna get a nice short URL. I cant find any free domain name registers without any extra things they wanna sell me.

So... does anyone know of a free domain regi service or a short named other provider??

Those are models legs, but are they womans or are they mens?

    freenetname requires you to reset your connection details and use BT lines or something weird <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; I'd recommend cjb.net.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Freenetname only ask you to use their connection to upload your site .... they aren't an ISP so you don't need to reset your connection or whatever.

    I'm with Freenetname but they stopped dishing out free domain names last year. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt;

    http://www.v3.com/v3home.asp

    not a kick in the arse away from V2 lol <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt;

    Bored? Then why not visit www.alza.co.uk :+)

    why not just splash out ooohhh...about 15 notes for a .co.uk domain name of your own for two years? hardly a major spendage <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/tung2.gif"&gt;


    Don't worry - be happy.

    Seriously? A one-off payment of £15 for two whole years!

    Pray, tell me where!

    i got my .com from mydomain.com, with no charges other than the registration fees...

    i would NOT recommend cjb.net for the following reasons:

    1. You'll have a very naff-looking newbie-style name like www.ithinkimcool.cjb.net

    2. cjb.net is known to be INCREDIBLY slow at time. not suitable if you think you're gonna get more than 1 hit in any given minute.

    3. cjb.net have got bitchy with some routing companies over in america, and the resulting childish squabble sometimes prevents access to any cjb sites for long periods of time. This affects requests from both the US and the UK (maybe others too).

    Say I were to buy a domain from the company for which you work -- that wouldn't include web hosting, would it? Would I have to pay for another company to host my site?

    (And do you work on commission? Just determining the extent of bias in your forthcoming reply. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt; )

    we would host your site for you, but it would cost...

    have a look at the comparison packages for windows hosting....as i doubt you'll be needing a unix box <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    this is the comparison chart, it all depends on how techy you want to go with your site...

    nope im not on commission, but my bruv knows his stuff a lot better than most and if you take a look at the perfomance charts his company were at 5th fastest in the UK at one point...i think they slipped to about 7th or 8th due to a network in telehouse having some kind of fault

    he's expanding too...gonna be titan hosting or something similar...if you check the whois chart basically anything with titan and hosting has gone <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

    plus...if you were after some help designing your site i wouldn't mind taking a look at it or adding anything you were after <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    My classmates will copulate with anything that moves, but I've never seen any reason to limit myself <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/ukliam2.gif"&gt;

    explain. i thought the only time you should use a windows box as a web server is when you don't mind compromising security to enable you to use ASP...

    are you saying that unix boxes are more expensive? shouldn't they increase the cost of windows boxes to allow for the extra maintenance/repair/pain-in-the-ass costs, not to mention the price of the operating system and server software?

    or is this another case of "windoz iz better cuz bill gatez sez so"

    i don't mind so much when you say that windows is the "standard" desktop operating system because of its undeniable popularity... but the standard webserver runs Linux and Apache (both free). Apache has a great majority over Microshaft's buggy and easily exploitable IIS, for obvious reasons. Apache is the standard web server of the internet and the others are imitators. so don't tell your customers (victims?) that they "don't need" a unix box, as if it's something that only clever people can use. don't forget to tell them how often a windows server needs to be restarted too.#

    i have come to the conclusion that the reason you diss unix so much is that you have no experience, and you don't want to sound stupid. Sorry, but you haven't fooled me yet.

    I paid just under £7 for a .co.uk domain for 2 years at www.123-reg.co.uk. I host it free on www.brinkster.com

    firstly, we have shed loads of trouble transferring domains from reg-123.com because they're bastards <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; if you ever wanna change your IPSTAG you're screwed

    secondly, you're hosting with someone who is shite - if you want decent data transfer you host with someone decent...and you don't get that for free <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;
