Free Domain (including .com) & Free Basic Hosting for a Year @ easyname.co.uk - No Payment Details Required

20
Found 21st Jan 2016
I have just signed up myself and registered for a .com domain, with free hosting for a year. After the first year cost is around £35 for domain and hosting package. But you can cancel 31 days prior to the current 1 year deal finishing, and no payment details are required for this deal! Your website can be up and running within minutes, mine was.

Thanks so much just signed up
Easyname site is poor in places. Keeps changing to German, and much of the English looks like someone has run the native German through google translate.

From your control panel, try going to "My Domains", then "External Domains" and half the page is English and half German. Not very good.
Not bad!!, hehehehe. :-)
Good way to get started, but considering you'd usually want a domain for more than 1 year there are definitely much better deals for the longer term. Personally I'd recommend the always low priced Namecheap for registration (£7.50pa for .com) and TSOHost for the hosting (£14.99pa). You won't go wrong with these as a starter. There are cheaper alternatives for sure but these should provide the reliability you'd want for a business website.

Also, if you get a domain name for your business please, please take the effort to learn how to link it to your email. There's nothing more unprofessional than "visit our website; abcplumbing.co.uk, email us at hornyplumber89@hotmail.com".

Looks like there is a catch - if you don't stay with them they'll charge you £12.90 (everywhere else I've used lets you transfer out for free).

and £45 to change the ownership of the domain.

I'd imagine they'll register you as the owner, so this fee would only apply if you want to give/sell the domain to someone else, or change from personal to business ownership. Transferring to another provider should only incur the £12.90 fee. I believe change of ownership has a statutory levy imposed by ICANN/Nominet (TLD-specific), but it's definitely not usually as high £45 as I've done it recently for a bulk load of domains.
Whilst there are some negative comments, this would be good specifically for a one time event or perhaps even something like a wedding website that you're not bothered about keeping after the big day? Also, it does allow you to get something up and running for zero cost, and £12.90 won't exactly break the bank if you wanted to transfer elsewhere in the future. Though be careful if you choose to use any site generator features, as there's a good chance you won't be able to transfer your site away.

So if I get one now, then forget about cancelling after an year, they gonna hunt me down ?
What if you already own a domain name, take up the free hosting offer, but wish to cancel before the first year is up?

Can I just go and use the domain I already own and use it with some other Hosting Company?

Sorry, I'm new to this type of stuff
I think the new Top Level Domains ae the way forward now. Like: .London, .Beer, .Miami, .Wedding, .Work etc.....
Looks a great deal, service can't be any worse than 1&1.

Should be fine, just don't "transfer" the domain to them, just point the name servers to theirs, or even better just change the DNS A records with your current domain provider to point to the servers of the new host.

This kind of stuff should be available in FAQs.
What will the cost per year be to retain domain name and hosting into the second year please
