To set up free hosting, you'll need to:
1. Sign up to 20i
You can sign up to 20i from here: https://my.20i.com/register The homepage will show you the options for paid hosting and a domain search box at the top.
2. You need a domain name
You can't set up our free hosting without a registered domain.
There are two ways to do this:
If you already have a domain registered:
You’ll need to transfer your domain to 20i. It’s free to transfer a domain that ends in .CO.UK, .ORG.UK or .ME.UK. For other top level domains we have to charge a fee. This fee is the same as the registration price and registers it to you for a year.
If you don’t have a domain registered:
You’ll have to register a domain.
