Gandi is offering a domain name to anyone for free!
1 year for all the domains (2 years for domains ending in .uk)
It's limited each day and it starts @ 12pm GMT so you have to be quick
Free Domains Include:
"To celebrate our 10th Birthday, we wanted to thank you for your support by giving away 55,000 domain names"
You have to enter the code yourself (copy and paste it) on the checkout page - so it will look like a £6.00 (plus VAT) bill until you do this. The box for the code is on the final page.
They are releasing them in 1000 batches on the hour - and all go within a few mins.
if you want one, register with the site well beforehand, check your login works and then login again (you get logged out if idle) at about 5 mins to the hour (the login process takes a minute or two as they have security features built in that you have to enter) - and then go to the promo page (if you can't find it go to the home page and it's in a banner menu centre top of page) and wait until XX.00 and click get my code (or similar wording).
Unsure of the time in France? There's a helpful clock, with seconds, on the page just below the button to "get my code".
Codes are only issued until 11th March, and only after 13.00 hours French time, (12.00 GMT) but they can be redeemed anytime up to 31st March, so there's no need to rush at getting your domain name - just a need to rush to get your code. 8000 a day, released in batches on the hour.
Besides, if you read the small print, transfers out to another host are free (though locked for the first 60 days) so you don't have to buy hosting space from Gandi, just transfer to your existing provider, if you have one...
