Free Domain Name with Website Hosting

If you really want to save a little bit of money or would like to have your domain and hosting in one place, you can get a free domain name for the first year with some hosting companies. They also let you transfer your domain for free as well if you already have it registered with another company.

Is It Worth It?

There are some pros and cons to this. You may get the first year for free but the yearly cost may be higher than other registrars. If you only have one domain and website, this may make sense for you. If you have a lot of domains as I do, I would just keep your domains with a different registrar which can end up being cheaper and easier to manage.

Here’s a list of the best hosting companies that provide a free domain name with hosting.
