Get your hands on a free domain with our plans

Get your hands on a free domain with selected hosting, website and email 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 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.

Classic web hosting

For anyone looking to start their own website, picking the right hosting plan is of the utmost importance. A free domain enables a quick and easy setup process with minimal (or no) upfront costs.
There are a number of free hosts out there who can help you get started with a subdomain. However, if you find that your site is slow to load, that it's inundated with unwanted advertising, and that there is no customer support available, then you should consider a paid service.
With IONOS, you will receive a free domain, email, as well as 24/7 support.

Blogging with Managed WordPress

There are many uses for a website, and not all of them require a paid-for domain registration. For instance, if you go abroad and want to keep a public record of what you are up to, starting a blog can be a great idea. In this scenario, a free WordPress subdomain is perfectly suitable.
By contrast, a free solution will not be adequate for those looking to launch a travel blogging career with accounts on social media platforms. Using IONOS’s managed WordPress blog hosting, you can create a more memorable domain name to share on Instagram, while also benefiting use of the numerous maintenance benefits it offers for improved web security, such as automatic security updates.
What’s more is, that your domain name is free for a lifetime, when using this plan.

By using our domain checker above you can search for which domain names are still available for you. If you choose an additional web hosting package or our website builder "IONOS MyWebsite", your desired domain will be included.

If you have registered a free domain name with IONOS, whether a or other TLD like .tv, there will be a charge for the second year of the contract. The exact costs for the second year will be displayed in your final shopping cart.

Often, free domain promotions are also possible due to the registries with which we work. Due to IONOS size and professional reputation, many domain registries are eager to work with us. We are also often able to establish cooperation with registries that want to gain a user-base rather quickly, without having to be solely responsible for all of the marketing and sales efforts.

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.

Yes, there are packages and plans that include a free domain for the life of the plan. Currently, this is possible with our website builder, MyWebsite or Managed WordPress hosting.
