That is a powerful bulb, I would recommend a large heavy-duty dome with a ceramic socket, probably something like this: http://www.bigappleherp.com/Big-Apple-P ... Fixture-10 or a porcelain wire lamp.

Your bulb should have recommendation included as well. Do you have any other pets, like cats?

Cats seem to be drawn to the heat of basking lamps, so you might want to devise a way to keep them from getting close to it.
