Hi, I'm Noah, and today I'm going to show you how you can register a domain name for free on the Internet. This is often a good solution if you're just making a website for fun, or simply practicing your skills as a web designer, or if you're just the owner of a new starting company, and don't want to invest too much in your website right away. There are three ways to get a free domain name, and the first is to get a completely free domain, with no strings attached but that has an unpractical ending. For example, just type in; free domain names on Google, and you'll find a lot of these. For example www.co.cc. Here you'll be able to register your free domain name, absolutely no strings attached, but the ending will be .co, .cc, which is often unpractical because when you tell somebody what your website is, people will not remember that specific ending, and just type in with .com and end up in somebody else's web page. A second way, is to get a free domain name, when you register for a hosting package. To find these, just type in; free domain with a hosting package. Here you'll have a list of a lot of these types of proprietors, for example, Networksolutions.com. Basically, if you just pay for one year hosting package, which is something you'll need in any case, they'll provide you a free domain name. Finally, a third way is to get a completely free hosting package, a completely free domain name, but only if you're willing to have advertisement on your website. Now, if it's just a personal page that you're making for fun, this could sometimes be a good solution. But for any kind of business, it will often upset customers, and people will be viewing your website to have lots of pop-up adds, which they don't want. But if this is still a good solution for you, it's definitely budget friendly, and easy to do.
