Today seems to my lucky day at digging up really free stuff 😉 On a sudden impulse I decided to check out on my old habitat, The Astahost Forums from where my blogging career had taken-off. And that’s where I came across this thread which talks about a new registrar called Domain Lagoon which gives you domain names for FREE.
The folks at Astahost were pretty skeptical of this service (even I would be) – but according to those who reported back in the thread, it really works! What you need to do is sign-up with DomainLagoon and complete some absolutely free offers (or some paid ones which are priced as low as $1) and earn credits for each action, which can then be exchanged for free domain names. According to the site, one can earn up to 100 free domain names per year. Alternatively, you can also follow the Referral approach, in which you’re rewarded bonus points for getting new members to sign-up with the service.
The domain named are made available to you for free for a period of 1 year following which, you can once again avail some more free offer to renew it for another year or opt for direct payment.
However, there are a couple of limitations / restrictions of this service:
- This offer is open only to the residents of the USA, Canada and UK.
- You have to be over 18 years of age or at least 13 years old with parental permission.
- Multi’s are an absolute NO NO, i.e. one account per person per household.
For further information and trial, visit Domain Lagoon. And in case you do manage to get a free domain, do leave some feedback here.
