How to Get Free Domain Names

by Joe

It is a good idea to learn how to get free domain names, particularly if you plan to use free website hosting services. In this post I will tell you about several websites where you can find free domain name services.

Generally speaking, free domains are more suitable for websites which are only meant for temporary use. If you are serious about your website or blog, and plan to use a domain name for a long time, it is better to buy a domain name at reputable registrar such as GoDaddy, NameCheap, Register, and 1and1. This will ensure that you retain permanent control over the name as long as you pay the annual subscription fees. Among these registrars, I highly recommend NameCheap because their price is very affordable and they offer free WhoisGuard Protection. If you need a .com TLD, you may want to check out 1and1 because they are having a $0.99 sale event. This may be a time-limited offer only.

Ok, let’s take a look about how to register a domain name at no cost.

2. Click the “Check Availability” button to see whether your desired name is still available.
