This article provides you a guide on how to register free domains. A domain name is the unique web address of a website. It goes in the format www.yourname.com. The “.com” section is known as a domain extension and there are many different extensions, from the most popular .com to .net, .org and country level extensions like .co.uk, .com.ng, and .ng. What extension you choose will depend on a number of factors, including the purpose of the website, the country you are targeting and more.
Domain names require an annual registration/renewal fee. That means you need to pay that fee each year. While the fee is small, for some reason, you may want to register free domains instead. There are two ways you can go about this.
You Can Register Free Domains With Web Hosting
Some web hosting companies offer you a free domain name when you purchase a web hosting package from them. Of course, the domain is free only as long as you pay up your web hosting fees when due. If you want to move your website to another webhost, you may be required to pay the cost of the domain name.
To register free domains with paid webhosting, simply find a web host that both meets your needs and offers free domain name registration and sign up with them.
You Can Register Free Domains With Tokelau
Tokelau is a New Zealand territory and its country level domain extension is .tk. For some reason, .tk domain registration is entirely free to everyone, so you can register free domain names using that extension e.g. www.yourname.tk.
Because .tk domains are free to register, you may find it difficult to get easy names, but if you get a little bit creative, you can still pick up cool names. To start, point your web browser to: www.dot.tk.
