How to Register a Free Domain Name

Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

Getting a domain name free is quite easy. Most web hosting companies offer a free domain name when you buy a web hosting package. So, you need not pay for a domain name when you are buying web hosting as the web hosting service will offer you one.

While getting a domain name free might seem like a good deal, there is a downside, which makes me recommend that you buy your domain name separately.

The Downside

The downside of taking a free domain name with your web hosting is that the domain name remains free as long as you maintain the web hosting account with the web hosting service. Once you want to move the website or the domain name to another web hosting company, your problem will start.

You will have to buy back the domain name from the web hosting service before you can move it and the buy back price will not be one you will be happy paying.

You can register a domain name with your existing web host if they offer domain name registration services or you can buy from another company. The important thing is to have the domain name in your account rather than your hosting company’s account.

So, it is always a good idea to pay for your domain name separately for full control. However, if you want a free domain name, you now know how to get one.
