How do I set up free hosting?

20i offer ad-free hosting, which is we don't charge-for. More information about our free hosting - including its limitations - can be found here: Free Hosting.

Here's how to set it up:

1. Sign up to 20i

Give us your details by signing up. Confirm your email address and sign in to My20i. 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.

 

3: Activate your free hosting on that domain name

Now you have your domain name, the last thing to do is to activate that hosting. 

  • Go to My20i, and choose ‘Manage Domains’
  • Select ‘Manage’ next to its name
  • Click the right-hand icon to ‘Activate free hosting’
