Hi there, and welcome to Global Technology Updates. In this post, we are going to learn about how we can Purchase a Free Domain for a year. A domain name actually is the address of the website, that shows where the website is located on the Internet. The domain is the most necessary thing you are going to need if you want to create a Website, without a domain you can’t create one.
So without any further delay, i will get to our tutorial to get a Free Domain. To buy this Free Domain we are going to use the Website Freenom.com. This is the only Free Domain Registrar on the Internet
A domain name can be seen in the URL bar in our browser. To purchase a domain we would usually head over to Godaddy’s Website, but in our case, we need a FREE DOMAIN so we will go to the Freenom website.
Once there, follow the below steps to Buy your FREE DOMAIN.
1] Open this website in your browser – Freenom.com
2] When the website will open you will see that there is a search bar. Use this search bar to see if the domain name you want is available or not. I have searched for the domain name ‘howtotips’.
3] After searching below you will find all the Free Domains available to buy.
4] From the list of Free Domain provide, select the one you would like to purchase, then click on ‘Checkout’ button.
5] On the next page you will see the Free Domain in your cart. The time duration of the free domain is by default 3 months. Increase this duration to ’12 Months @ Free’. This is the longest duration for which you can own a free domain. After that click on ‘Continue’ button.
6] In this next Window you need to create an account on this website. So enter your e-mail address and click on the ‘Verify’ button below it.
7] In the next screen, you will be asked to verify your email address.
8] After you click on the link, a form page will open. Fill all your details correctly. I have filled the form for an example. Look at the image below and fill your form.
After filling up the form accept their ‘Terms and Conditions’. Then click on ‘Complete Order’ button.
9] Now you will see a message the ‘Your order has been confirmed’ along with your order number. This means that you have successfully purchased a Free Domain for a whole year.
10] Now you can Login to your Freenom account using the option shown in below image. You can manage your domains from there.
Now you have Purchased this Domain and there are no additional Steps to Follow. You can use this Free Domain to link to your Website or you can use as a forwarder. Or you can learn to create a completely Free Website using the link provided below.
