Guide to free domains and free hosting sites

Blogged by: Kitty on Sunday, August 28, 2011   Facebook comments: comments

I've been receiving a lot of questions lately and the most common one is mostly relating to "free domains". For everybody's sake, and because I don't want to keep on repeating myself over and over again, I shall answer the question here.

Question: Do you know where I can get free domain?
Answer: Honestly, there isn't any websites that offer to give out free domains as such. However, free domains can still be obtained through contests or, on very rare occasions, through giveaways. There are also domains that can be obtained by "adopting" them. These domains are only borrowed or leased to you. The legal owner is still the one who bought the domains.

Another frequently asked question is, "Where can I find free host?"
This question is rather easy to answer. Free hosting websites are abundant. In fact, it is not an exaggeration if I say free hosting sites are practically littered across the WWW. The question is, where can you find good and reliable host?
Good and reliable hosts aren't as easy to locate, because you need to know and identify them before you get hosted by them. And in many cases, hostees only find out the truth after they get hosted and it is too late to back out. So here, I will list out web hosts that I know to be trustworthy and reliable.


Sites where you can adopt domains:
http://innocentsky.com/adopt.php
http://unloved-heart.net/adopt/
http://www.flaunt.nu/adopt
http://www.starszz.com/site-news/domain-name-adoption/
http://fanfusion.org/domain-requests
http://fan-sites.org/2009/03/18/adoptable-domains-and-sites/


Free web hosting sites:
CBD-Hosting.net
Innocent Sky.com
Secretkiss.org

The list does not include those who offer subdomain hosting on their own websites1.

Also, please take note of the rules, terms and conditions that are stated on each of the free domain adoption/hosting sites before you make any decision. Most of the sites will have requirements that you need to follow so it is advisable for you to read them carefully and thoroughly. This is to avoid complications, or in the worst case, to avoid termination of your adoption/hosting.

agree... freehost is everywhere but to find a good one, that's the trick .. since i started making sites, i've been trying almost all major freehost lol XD there was this one hosting site that's pretty known before, bubble.nu but too bad that it got hacked easily these days...

hehe, MINIMALISTIC! that's the word! i've been thinking about it and went "there's a term for this kind of layout but what is it!" the wholleee day! yeah, almost 24 hours but still there are errors here and there which I have to fix XD I'm kinda proud of it as well ^^

maybe not the main site but there were two graphic request site which were affiliated with us before and they got hosted there and every time I went there, the site is empty and there's this "hacked" warning on it.. but yea, i still believe that they're the best host as they have been online for a while now.. sorry if i offended you.. i guess it's on the hostees site.. i don't remember the site's name tho..in fact they're the first ever site that introduced me to this hosting thingy ^^

raya? well, i think we did pretty well this year. for the past few years, we don't really "spring-cleaning" our house just for raya because we always do that once a month, but this year, mom and dad went all-out! i painted the house, my sister cleaned/rearrange the living room, all hyped out for it! haha.. i guess, in my siblings and I's part, it's all fun because we don't have to shop for baju raya.. that's the least thing that we look forward in every raya. this year, our aunt from Brunei made us a few baju rayas so we just have to find matching headcovers for it.. hmm.. it's late, and you're still wide awake? lol XD

hehe..thought so too XD however, I have to wake up early because i'm charge of cooking and preparing the table hehehe~ ahhh, today's the last day of Ramadhan~ if only I'm celebrating raya in Miri this year, I would have visited you in Brunei! hahaha~
