    A domain name for free?!

    I have heard that if you buy services from Aletai, and prepay it for one year (meaning not paying monthly, right) then you get a domain name, hosted by Aletai, for free? Is there any truth to this rumor?

    yes its true

    you even get the rights to it as well
    so say you want to switch hosts later on you can keep the name and transfer it to your new host
    Nomsane?
    That is all.

    no, it's just another domain. You can use it as your main domain, a multi-hosted domain, a domain pointer, just a domain that sits around. You just get the domain name for free, nothing else...

    How long is domain name registration free

    Is the free domain name registration only good for the first year, or is it renewed for free as long as you pay to renew your AletiaHosting account on a yearly basis.

    Basically, I want to know whether the first year costs say $x, and if subsequent years cost $x or $x+9.95.

    Thanks.

    Aletia Corp: yup
    and no, me is not my sn

    Thanks for the info

    Thanks for the rapid feedback.

    I've pretty much narrowed it down to aletiahosting and ntidesign (nexpoint technologies) for hosting options and that affects pricing somewhat.

    Now I guess the decision will come down to whether the forums and real IP address available here are more important than the massive disk space and bandwidth available for a slightly higher price per year at ntidesign.
    Choices, choices.

    Hmm...I did not see massive space & bandwidth at ntidesign. Unless you can justify this by paying 3 times as much!
