How To Get a Free Domain Name – Is It Actually Possible?

Domain’s are not an infinite resource. A domain name represents a unique place on the internet, which means no one else is having that place except YOU. Promising that you can get any .COM or .SHOP without paying anything, yeah, that’s a bit of a LIE. So in this video I’ll show you how to work around this restriction and give you a few options to choose from if you’re in search of a free domain.

While you theoretically can get a free country coded domain name from freenom or dot tk websites I wouldn’t recommend choosing this option. Here are a couple of ways of getting a legit domain name:

✔️#1 Get A Free Subdomain
Many website builders offer this option for free. You also can get free hosting and easily build your website on the same platform. Wix, 000webhost are great options for this. Of course your domain won’t be very pretty but it’s a great option for beginners or someone who just wants to test things out.

✔️#2 Buy Hosting With a Free domain name
If you need a domain name chances are you are just creating your website. Many web hosting providers actually include a free domain name when you buy their plans. It’s a great choice for someone who’s just starting their business online, everything you need is in one place. Just don’t forget that you don’t own the domain name, you’re only renting it for a certain period and you’ll need to renew your purchase after a certain time frame.

✔️#3 Get A SUPER Cheap Domain Name
Finally, domain names are not THAT expensive. You can even get a domain from GoDaddy for $1 for the first year. Another great option is NameCheap, they include domain privacy for a lifetime. This option is not truly “free” but buying a cheap product is always better than getting a free one because you can be certain that you actually own or atleast rent the domain and it’s not registered on somebody else’s name.
