Basically, a domain name is your website name. It is the address of your website that people type in the browser URL bar to visit your website. Examples of domain names are www.cnn.com, www.ezoneschool.com, www.ictteachersug.net and www.cheriwilshire.org.
While domain names are cheap (See our prices here), sometimes you may opt to get a free one. If you are still a student of webdesign, getting yourself a free domain name may be a better alternative as you perfect your skills before you invest a dime. In this article, I will discuss one way you can get a domain for free for your sample website.
Step 1: Visit www.freenom.com
In the ‘find new free domain’ field, enter a desired domain name and click Check Availability.
Step 2: You then get to the page that shows you that your domain name is available and free. Click Checkout.
Step 3: You can adjust the duration from the default 3 months to 1 year.
Step 4: Fill in your name servers by clicking use DNS, choose Use your own DNS and type ns1.servconfig.com and ns2.servconfig.com. Click continue.
Step 5: Enter your email address and verify it.
You get a message that a link has been sent to your email.
Step 6: Check your email and click on the link to complete the registration process.
You now have a domain name that you can use for your web design practice. All you now have to do is to check out which hosting plan best suits you by comparing them here.
