It is common to find web hosts that offer domain registration services and even free domain registration when you sign up for hosting. The free registration is typically good for a year but does not cover the acquisition of the domain if you are looking for a name that is already taken by someone else. The popular web hosts below all offer hosting plans that include free domain registration.

How To Register A Free Domain

In order to obtain a free domain, you must first find and sign up for a hosting plan that includes it as a feature. During the sign-up process, you can elect to create a new domain or choose to use a domain you already own and have registered. In the latter case, many hosts will migrate your domain name to their registrar and include free registration for a year.

While domain registration is generally cheap – frequently costing $10 to $20 a year – it is also paid up front annually instead of monthly. If you signup for new hosting when you’re only halfway through the annual cycle of your registration, it is usually truncated without any prorated refund given to you.

Finally, keep in mind that “free domain” refers to registration and not ownership of the domain itself. If you want to use a domain that is already registered by someone else, it is in your hands to secure that domain first before taking advantage of any free registration.

Best Free Domain Registration Services

Domain registration operates exactly the same across all registrars. That said, if this feature is important to you, there are two factors to take into consideration:

  • The cost of registration after the year is over: free domain registration usually covers just the first year of ownership. After that, you’ll be charged for the registration at a price designated by the host. Since there is no penalty for having registration separate from hosting, it is recommended you consider this price when making a purchase.
  • Lifetime free registration: some hosts to provide free lifetime registration so long as you stay with them for your hosting needs.
