There’s a company from Europe called 1&1 Internet Inc. that is offering three years of free web hosting for signing up to their service before January 15th. That’s an amazing promotional rate, so I had to check it out.

Setting up an account with them was a little weird. They use an automated phone system to call you with a pin that you proceed to type into their website. It’s a little involved, but it goes quickly. Amazingly, they don’t need a credit card to set your account up. This time free really does mean free!

I am sure that the support will be minimal, if at all for your free account. But hey, you get what you pay for. It’s great for me, because I need little or no support anyway. I already transferred the domain to the site and it is working great! So far so good. I’ll keep you posted on the progress of migrating the other domains there.


  1. I’m not sure about this. I’m a firm believer in “you get what you pay for.” Thanks for the heads up though.
