How to get your free domain

Start your project with a domain

A domain is the foundation of every online project. If your main audience or market is in the UK, what better way to get going than with a free domain? Whether it’s WordPress, a website builder or web hosting you need, a free domain is included in most of our plans. Plus, as an IONOS customer you have access to a free personal consultant who will help you turn your vision into reality.

Get your hands on a free domain with our plans

Get your hands on a free domain with selected hosting, website and WordPress packages. Supported domains include .org,, .uk, .com, .net, .biz, .info, .me, .online.


If you are creating a website you intend to monetise, such as by publishing sponsored and commissioned content or incorporating advertising, then a free domain name will likely no longer be adequate for you. This is because your website will need to be optimised for search engines and should also have a catchy and appropriate URL.

Using the MyWebsite service, you will not only be entitled to a free first-year domain but you will also receive a free email address. Using this free email for business communications will ensure you look more professional for your customers.

In addition, whereas with free providers there is a possibility your site could be deleted for no reason, you retain full control of your website with IONOS.

These registries give us attractive offers, which we can pass on to our customers. This is often why IONOS is able to offer limited-time free domains or free domain registration.

Limited-time free domains are not meant to be deceptive, but rather are an opportunity to give our customers fantastic deals from which they can benefit. At the end of the day, however, IONOS is foremost invested in providing high-quality hosting services that our customers can rely on. Unlike other hosting services, which are focused merely on cost allure, IONOS is focused on maintaining the best possible service for our customers, which includes having top-of-the-line technology, as well as thousands of qualified employees worldwide running our data centres and supporting our millions of customers.
