Get a free domain name and hosting of 10 GB of free disk space


This is a totally free domain name and hosting. It’s not a time limited offer and there is no catch to it.

First, we will start with the free hosting part.

I saw a video post a while back done by this young man from Argentina  about a free wordpress hosting offering 10 GB of disk space and 100 GB monthly transfer – Crear Pagina Web 100% Gratis –  so i thought about trying it and see what comes out of it.

It’s an Argentinean hosting company called http://hostito.com.ar and the website is in Spanish – which is no trouble to me – but i am sure those of you who want the 10 GB will not let the language get in your way.

They offer the following:

  • 10 GB disk space
  • Vista Panel
  • Web mail
  • 100 GB transfer
  • PHP Flags manager
  • POP email
  • 10 MySQL databases
  • Preinstalled scripts (29 scripts)
  • 6 Parked domains
  • FTP account
  • Php MyAdmin
  • 6 Sub-domains
  • File manager
  • Clustered servers

Cool, right?

So, i’ve set up the following blog: Space Images on http://carolsvault.hostito.com.ar/ to see what was all about and i am really pleased with this free host.

First, the signup part is quite simple and straightforward:

Choose your username, which will be used as your primary name for your new website, fill in the rest and when you get to the Auto-Install scrip, just leave it as you see it in this shot.
To show you step by step how this work (it’s actually dead simple), i set up a new domain – freeware.
Fill in the rest and register. You will get a page telling you that an email has been sent to you with the activation link. Click on it to activate.

On the next page you will get this:

The next step is to go to your cPanel:
http://cpanel.hostito.com.ar and scroll down to Software and Services and click on Script Installer.installscript thumb Get a free domain name and hosting of 10 GB of free disk space

You will be taken to the next page where you only have to click the “Proceed” button.

Choose the software you want to install and click “Install”. Leave the destination folder empty and hit “Complete Install”.
If by leaving the destination folder blank you get an error, remove the files they recommend or simply type in a name such as “blog”.

And that’s it. The next page shows you your details.

You know what to do from here.

Now let’s get us a free domain name.
In your cPanel, you have the option to get a free domain name.

Click on Get a free cu.cc domain and register: http://cu.cc/.
You can get as many as 100 free domain names, but they all end in cu.cc.
I will get back now to my original set up –CarolsVault – Space Images-  and show you how to point your new domain name to your hostito blog.
The domain name i chose is Carolsvault.cu.cc.

The first thing is to set up the URL forwarding so when i click on http://carolsvault.cu.cc i will get to http://carolsvault.hostito.com.ar/.

Once you click the lower button “Setup URL forwarding” it will activate.
On your cPanel under Domains/ Addon Domain Management, you have your DNS servers which you can use to point out into your “Name Servers” settings.

That’s about it.

This is a totally free host and so is the domain name. It’s not a time limited offer.

Now you have your own free domain name and hosting of 10 GB space to install whatever CMS software you like.

Enjoy it.
