Whenever somebody is staring online, they need a domain and hosting to get their website up.

When ever I talk to my friends and family members who are planning to launch a website, they usually have domain purchased from popular domain services like GoDaddy.

The problem is, because of unawareness, all of them miss getting their free .com domain or other top level domain names like .org, .net and so on.

If you are here for getting a free .com domain for a year, I’m going to share the trick which will help you to save money on your domain.

If you don’t follow it now, you might end up paying extra later.

So read everything carefully to buy .com domain for free.

How to Buy .com Domain for free

Typically purchasing a .com domain for a year cost at least $8-$15 and most of us make this mistake of booking the domain first.

The thing is, we all are impulsive people and when we get an idea for an online business or even need a domain name for our offline business, we just head over to any domain booking website and purchase the domain.

Most of us think that, we should book the domain now and will think about creating the website later.

This impulsive behavior not only cost you extra in the longer run, and most of the time we end up wasting these purchased domains.

Well, one thing which we miss out here is, we can’t have our website up without the hosting. Until unless you are using a free platform (Which is not recommended for professional use).

So what you should do to get free .com domain ?

First of all, you should decide the domain name and once that is decided; you need two things to get your website up and running: Domain Name + Hosting.

One thing which most of the newbie miss out is, there are web-hosting which offers a free domain with every yearly package.

So, even if you are planning to launch your website in next 2-3 months, it’s a wise decision to grab one such web-hosting package, which offers free domain and you can launch your website any time.

I’m sharing one such popular and reliable hosting companies, from where you can buy hosting for the discounted price (limited time) and get one domain name of your choice for free.

      The charges for renewal or a second domain is 8.99. you can see that in the last screenshot.

      moreover, you always have the option of renewing it elsewhere. so that shouldn’t be a concern.

    1. Rajat Kumar

      yep both paypal and cc’s. as for renewal refer to the previous comment to techno-pulse.

  1. Chetan Bhasin

    What if I don’t want to renew the domain name? Would I have to inform them in advance and they have to discontinue my domain or it would automatically be discontinued if I don’t renew it?

    1. you can delete the domain from your list. that will suffice. moreover, you’ll have 11 months before you have to start worrying about this.

  2. I just tried registering. It asked to link a Paypal account. I added and then confirmed order. But didn’t get any mail so far.

    1. i remember this point during my transaction. i thought for once that they’ll have poor service and late replies but be patient. you’ll get a mail in less than three hours confirming your order informing you if the transaction was successful or not.

      1. Yeah you’re right! I was starting to send them a mail but I got the confirmation mail including my Cust ID. So My registration is complete.

        I was just curious whether this is real. So I tried some fully domain. At last my domain is registered. The name is “”Idiotscourse.com” Idiotic domain name isn’t it?

    Hi Rajat,

    Thanks a lot for updating about such a great offer… 🙂

    I have purchased the domain… Waiting for the email confirmation now…

  4. I got pass the registration and order confirmed. But still hasn’t receive any emails on my new domain name. Godaddy and Namecheap are almost instant. Will wait for another 24 hrs before sending their support a request.

    1. Amandeep Singh

      Wait Cliff,

      You will get the email asking for some ID proof of yours.

      Rajat Can you please confirm if this was the same for you too…

      1. Rajat Kumar

        nopes Amandeep. i did not get any such thing. do tell us more about it. is it something to do with your credit card info?

        1. Amandeep Singh

          Nope Rajat,

          I gave my Paypal account only, so I got a mail askin’ for my ID proof. I sent a scanned image of my licence. Then today I got the mail saying my account is activated…

          But still in my account the domain shows status as Waitiing for Approval. Can you please update, is this what happened for you as well?

          1. Rajat Kumar

            i havent come across anything like this. as for the domain, try waiting for a while. i admit that this site is somewhat slower than the other leading providers which give you instant order confirmations.

  5. Neeraj Kumar

    This offer is good, but the point is, they charge at a really high amount at the time of renewal ! 🙂

  6. Yeah I do appreciate your kindness in letting us know about this great offer.

    @Techno-Pulse: I’ve already purchased a domain from this offer. Idiotscourse.com. Have a check if you are still can’t believe it. As far as I know there is no referral program for registration or any other scan. Words are sensitive, please use it sensibly. Sorry in advance if you felt bad 🙂 he he

  7. Pradhyuman Singh

    LOL nothing personal.
    Ignore all my words, but i will put more focus on the site that it is a scam.
    I wrote the post before testing it and when tested it myself it proved quite misleading.

    1. its alright. got nothing against you. in fact no matter how you put it you are only helping everyone know 1and1 better. so relax 🙂

    1. yes around a dozen people here have already got one for themselves including Harsh and me. So go ahead and grab yours Neo

  8. Can we get the domain transferred to some other registrar within free one year offer free of cost.

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      @Vikarm
      How’s that possible? Did you purchased hosting from Bluehost.com or Bluehost India?

  9. Hey Rajat kumar,
    Thanks for sharing this helpful post. But I just know how it possible? Are you sure Bluehost will give .com domain free for 1 year? can you share your prove document? It could be helpful for me. Thanks! See you again.

    Thanks for sharing about free domain name for one year with Bluehost hosting. I was looking for last two months to buy a domain name but I had no credit card and they don’t accept debit card. But recently I came to know about Google G suite and sign up and brought a domain name using my debit card. Can I transfer or use the same domain name with Bluehost hosting?

    1. @Mobasir
      You have two options:
      1. Use the same domain to register an account on Bluehost as the main domain and from next year, renew it for free.
      2. Change the nameserver of the domain to point it to Bluehost. You can still use the free .com offer to get a new domain name for free.
