If you are thinking,' Is it possible to get a free domain name and web hosting for website?'. The answer is,' Yes, you can.' And you are in the right place for guidance. There are more than 1 billion websites on the internet. Before starting a website, you have to buy a domain and web hosting. And a domain and web hosting cost more than 100+ dollars in a year. If you are a beginner in IT industries and don't want to spend money. You can get domain and web hosting without losing any money.
Today I will show you how to get a free domain name from freenom and get free web hosting from 000webhost. And these methods are legal. But before starting the step by step methods, I want to talk about some pros and cons of these methods.
1. From Freenom, you will get 1-year free domain name.
2. You can customize the Nameservers of your domain.
3. You can get as many domain names as you need. (there is no limit. But do not purchase over 20 or 25 domain names.)
2. 000webhost has only 10 GB bandwidths limit. This is not enough for a big website.
3. They're not custom email fortune.
Freenom gives free domains. But, it gives only .tk, .ml, .ga, .ml domain. Those are not a high TLD domain. So if you on a serious project don't use this domain. Only use this domain for testing a website or an unnecessary project. Also the same about 000webhost. If you are working on a serious project, please select premium hosting. Because 000webhost is free, so it has some limitations.
Step 2: On the home page, you will be able to type the domain name in the 'Find a new Free domain' field.
Step 3: Then click the 'Check Availability' button.
Step 4: If the domain name is available, click the 'Select' option and then select the 'Checkout' button.
Step 5: There will be an option to forward the domain or use DNS on the checkout page. You can also select the 'Period' of the domain here. You can choose 12 months (max), selecting the dropdown menu. (Choose the period you would like to register for.)
Step 6: After that, you need to create a new account. You can enter your email address and click on the 'verify my email address' button. Or you can create your account with google by clicking the 'sign-in' button.
If you are already registered, select 'Click here' to login and complete the domain registration to your existing account.
Step 7: After sign in, you have to complete your name and address form.
You will receive an email for freenom for completing the order.
After finishing all the above steps, you will able to change the nameservers for hosting the domain.
Step 3: You can sign up by email or google account.
Step 4: After successfully sign up, you will redirect to the dashboard. Click on the 'create new site' button. A dropdown box will come. Here you have to select your unique site subdomain name and password. After that, click on the 'create' button.
Step 6: From sidebar select Tool > Set Web Address. Then click on the 'add domain' button. Select the Park domain option. Then enter your domain address.
Step 7: Now, you have to change your domain nameservers.
