Free domain names

Every website has a specific name to identify it on the World Wide Web. Like your home address, it consists of different parts. The domain name has to be unique and lead to only one specific website. This is why you have to check first if your desired domain name is free and not already taken.

Every web address begins with "www." This is an abbreviation for World Wide Web and is the gateway to the internet. Nowadays, domain names do not necessarily have to have a "www" in front of them because web browsers automatically recognize them. The next part, the second level, is the most important recognition factor – the domain name. Think of a domain name that best reflects the content and subject of your website.

The last part is the top-level domain, and it can be generic (.net, .com, .org) or geographic (.us, .ca, etc.). The TLD gives your website a special designation on the web. You can only register a free domain name that has not already been claimed. To check if your desired domain name is available, use the 1&1 IONOS domain checker.
No, there is no fixed list of free domain names at 1&1 IONOS. Domain prices always depend on the structure of the current offers. In our fee-based web hosting packages, one free domain name is always included.
First of all, 1&1 IONOS is not a free domain name service provider in general. We usually have very competitive pricing for our domain customers; however, you will not be able to enjoy free domains all the time. The reason we can occasionally give away domains at little or no cost is that our large customer base enables us to attract a lot of registries that work with us.

One example of such cooperation might be a registry that launches a new TLD but does not intend to do all of the marketing and sales activities by themselves. Nevertheless they would like to see quick growth in their user base and to reach this goal they give 1&1 IONOS very attractive offers. Then, for example, we can sometimes offer free domain registration.

On the one hand, this is a great opportunity for our customers to benefit from fantastic offers, on the other hand it can evoke the wrong impression about the hosting industry in general. In the long run, it is impossible to offer free domain name registration and web hosting services at a high quality level. At 1&1 IONOS, we have thousands of qualified employees worldwide that run our data centers and support millions of our customers.
The simple answer is "no." It can be tough to find a relevant top level domain, like .com that is free of charge for a lifetime. This is especially true if you do not want to keep transferring your domains from one hosting provider to another every year.

Moreover, if you would like a lifetime of stable hosting with your free domain name, you should look instead for a high quality paid service. This will give you the chance to work on your project full time and not have to worry about cancellation deadlines a couple of months before your contract ends, only to have to register your domain again.
Occasionally, we have had offers in the past where we gave a limited amount of .com domains to our customers for free. At the moment, there is no such offer available. You can still benefit from many of our affordable products that have a free domain included.
