How to Get a Free Domain
Yes, of course, you can get a free domain without spending a single penny. But you can not get a top-level domain at free of cost. For a new web admin, top-level domain is not a requirement.
First, go to www.freenom.com and type the required domain name without any .com / in etc.
Then select any one of the free available domains. Do not select the .tk domain. Many hosting providers take it as spam.
Next Select 12 Months @ FREE in the period. 1 year is more than enough to learn about Website.
Now enter your email id to receive verification link.
Always use the popular email address like Gmail, Outlook etc.
The email link will be valid for 24 Hours.
After you click the link a Registration form will open. Fill all the details like Name address Phone number Zip Code etc.
After submitting Details you can go into the client area.
Here you can see your recently registered domain name will show with a date to expire.
