    1. Gandi.net is a reputable company, it doesn't scam people. Did you follow the guide exactly as it is shown here? You have to select .ME domain which says $0.0 per year. The regular fee for registering .Me on Gandi is $24, but that fee is automatically negated to $0 if you do as I have said above.

      1. i did everything until the last drop of the registration. i got different than your pics. my choice has a payment but in your pic, it doesnt have.

          1. i'm pretty sure i'm going to love this blog. thanks mister :) yeah i've just live chat with them and they told me they'll be back oon monday because registration spam.

            i'm going to check here more. i would be pleased to see iOS stuff in here. You got like 27/7 support here :D

          1. Strange, half an hour ago i have avtivated my domain, and it point to may NS (which i changed), but now returned to: "This domain name has been registered with Gandi.net. It is currently being parked by the owner".

            And was interrupted while i uploaded some files...

            Why?

          2. Did you try clearing your cache? But, if the file upload was interrupted, it couldn't have been a cache issue either. Login to your account and check the Nameserver details. It is very possible that they could have disabled your account.

  1. This offer is not a scam, but the problem is that you need to be a US or UK (and some other few countries) to get it, if you get into the ordering page, and got 0.00 $ then you're just 1 step away from getting your domain, if you got any amount (24 $ or any) that mean your country isn't listed to get this offer.

  2. It's also not working because they offer only 50,000 free domain and it's book under couple of days.
    plz reply. me a working tips thank you

    1. That has been explained on the post. Login to Gandi.net with your Gandi handle and password. Then go to Modify Servers as shown on the last picture above. You can change your DNS from there.

      And No, after changing your DNS, the email won't come to your ThunderBird. You will have to manually set it up on ThunderBird with your Host's mail server.

      1. I got it to work but then they killed the damn domain and now I had to sign up with fm1337.me and they closed that... but I got it back online so now its fm1337.me

  3. Is this free offer only for one year? Will they be telling us to pay or no more e-mail after one year? I thought this was supposed to be free email,

    1. Yes, you get free e-mail address/domain for first year only. After that, you will need to pay to renew it. (To get the .me email, the .me domain has to be registered, which costs money. Gandi.Net is simply registering the domain for you for the first year only.)

  4. can you help me to regist a free .me domain?i try with us vpn,but it don't conect with the site.what the name of the domain i whant is "gaofushui".please help me regist it,then sent a email about the acount imformation of the "gaofushui.me" to me.my email address is *removed for spam protection*,thank you.

  5. Well its not working. Its a bullshit website. After successful registration my domain got deleted within 4 hour. Than tried many times and my domain deleted every-time. So I recommend, Better use a paid domain provider for good service.

  6. I registered my domain about a week ago and its still working. Ive been using it almost everyday for a website. Maybe you have to stay active.

  7. Found a legit working solution to get .me domain for free.
    1.Install Easy Hide IP
    2.Get a US Address from Borderlinx(Provides US&UK addresses for people staying outside US)
    3.Clear all your cookies(Thunderbird cookies too!)
    4.Restart the system
    5.Start Easy Hide IP,Change the IP to US
    6.Try Registering again with the US Address(Borderlinx address)
    7.Tada !Your Free .me domain is ready!

    1. This is not going to work with easy hide ip too, i tried all the methods after successful registration your domain will be deleted within 2 hours to 3 days. so don't use gandi. its completely bullshit. Better pay for a domain and use coupon codes for cheap domain registration,
