I've never heard of it either, strange idea. We do a little free hosting on the side (backlinks, reviews, etc), but offering a domain has never been a selling point, all our free customers seem to want to use their own domains (sometimes free ones such as co.cc, uni.cc, co.nr).

Most of those free domains such as co.cc and co.nr can be obtained without signing up for any sort of web hosting package, so it's generally not a huge problem to find some sort of decent domain name, but I still am on the lookout for free hosts that offer a .biz or .info, since i'm pretty sure they are out there still.

It's a bit disappointing that it wasn't exactly what you thought it was, but I had never heard of a free host giving out a free domain that was not a subdomain, so I wasn't too excited about it. I wonder if there are any out there? I somehow doubt it, but it would be interesting to find one.

I am still looking, so do not give up hope yet!

In the mean-time, be sure to look into a domain with co.nr, co.cc, cjb.net, and others. They aren't quite getting your own domain at .com, but they are close enough that it will still look more professional than HostingDiscussion.blahblahblah.com or something like that.

Anyway, I am still looking for stuff...so don't give up!

I think that you will find all what you are looking for. I have to say that this is time related question. I would recommend you source like FWS for free related offers.

hey, before choosing about free web hosts we must be very careful about some difficulties because of their bandwidth transfer speed and some may have unwanted ads. while surfing i have found this site to be more useful for web hostings http://www.*********************/

I have heard about these, but I thought with the business growing that all such sites have died off. If you find any good ones, please post them. This would be very helpful in obtaining and maintaining a personal website.

Yes, there are a few of these hosting providers out there that do this, however they also put a load of adverts on your page to generate revenue for them which I dont like in my opinion. I would rather pay $0.99 and register a .info and set up my own site with my own identity.

Granted, they do have some limitations on being accepted, such as how some of the hosts say that you will need to log into your web site at least once every week or month, and possibly some other things.

Also some of them will only offer a less desirable domain name such as .info, but it still is pretty nice!

Anyone else heard about these?


Honestly speaking, I am amazed if there is such company out there which offers this kind of service. We do offer a FREE Domain name, but you have to, at least, pay a minimum amount of hosting.

I second you on that...unless a company is giving out free domains as part of their ad campaign...or running a losing-business.

You keep recommending this provider in your every post. Apart from being one of those "unlimited promise" providers, could you perhaps share your site URL that you host with them?
