Default Bargains

I rashly agreed to set up a demonstration web site for a small organization of which I'm a member. The primary purpose of the web site is merely to make it easier for people to find us, since the organization has no office or telephone listing. It gets postal mail at a PO box.

There was no particular plan for hosting or domain registration. We were still at the stage of discussing what, beyond a "contact" form, we wanted to have on the site.

Yesterday, however, I noticed at gotapex.com that pronethosting.net was offering a year of web hosting for $1. Signing up seemed to require either having a domain name already, or buying one during the sign-up.

The domain name that the organization would probably want isn't available, and I'm not sure what it would choose instead. As I was checking on other domain names, I found that godaddy.com was having a special on names in the .info domain: 89 cents. So I registered one. The organization would probably prefer to be in the .org domain but .info will work at least for the demonstration.

The hosting offer is still available: pronet deal.
