FAQ - Frequently asked questions about the topic:


  • What is a domain name?

    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. That is why you have to check first if your desired domain name is free and not already claimed. Any 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 because web browsers will recognize it automatically. 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 domain checker.

  • Can I also register free .com domains with 1&1?

    There are of course free domain options available from many service providers, and likewise you can certainly register free domain names with 1&1. However, it should be mentioned that there are usually no free options for .com domain registration, regardless of registrar. As a general rule, getting a .com domain name free is not possible because they are in exceptionally high demand. Because .com domains are the most commonly used gTLD, there is not an infinite amount of them still available. It ultimately comes down to an issue of supply and demand: .com free domain name registration is usually not possible simply because there aren't enough unregistered .com domains to be able to offer a .com domain for free.
    That being said, with 1&1 web hosting packages, you will always receive one free domain. You can absolutely register a .com domain for free when signing up for your 1&1 hosting package. So, in this sense, yes 1&1 does offer a .com domain free with each hosting package, if that is the domain extension that you choose to go with for your free domain option.
