How do I set up free hosting?

20i offers free web hosting with no ads, intended for small businesses, charities and blogs. More information about our free hosting - including its limitations - can be found here: Free Hosting.

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.

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

If you ever want to upgrade to our paid Web Hosting or WordPress Hosting, you can do this in a few clicks from My20i.
