    i tried it , it's not free :(

  2. Joshua Joshua

    It gave me to a page where i would pay $28. this is a scam!

    • 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.

      • Joshua Joshua

        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.

        • Hi Joshua, I have just learned that they took the offer down due to spam registrations. They said it will be back by Monday. Please try registering the domain on Monday.

          • Joshua Joshua

            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

          • Seems like it's working now. Try registering the domain. :)

  3. J4WZ J4WZ

    well i need to pay £16.74 for .me domain on gandi..

    • They have put the offer on hold for some days now. It works sometimes, whereas sometimes, it doesn't. So, just try again later; it should work at some point.

  4. J4WZ J4WZ

    do you need to register a new account everytime traying?

    • No, you don't need to create a new account every time you try. If it shows $0.00 as it shows on the second picture above, just click on BUY and log-in to your existing account.

      PS. It seems like they've limited the offer to certain countries, but they have not mentioned to which countries. ( I'll let you know if there's any new update. Thank you.

  5. J4WZ J4WZ

    but eaven when its have a button that is says $ 0.00 when i click it and login it says 16.45 £..

    • I'm sorry but they have now limited the offer to certain countries only.

      • Bogdan Bogdan

        It work with an hide ip, and i said i'm from US, i hope to let me to keep.

        • So, you mean it worked when you used a US VPN/Proxy? Congrats. :)

          • Bogdan Bogdan

            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 It is currently being parked by the owner".

            And was interrupted while i uploaded some files...


          • 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.

          • Bogdan Bogdan

            Well, it's back again, and try to upload .

            For @J4WZ , i use "Easy-Hide-IP", and i setup US

        • J4WZ J4WZ

          well its not working what VPN/PROXY did you use?

        • J4WZ J4WZ

          did you need to create a new account or did it worked with your exsting one?

        • J4WZ J4WZ

          i love you its working for me :D

  6. J4WZ J4WZ

    how do you guys get this working?

  7. J4WZ J4WZ

  8. Darko Darko

    What about this promo code, can someone can give me promo code...I think when we walidate it, it will work... Please help..

    • No promo code is required. Just follow the direction on the post above. Use a USA VPN if doesn't work in your country.

  9. At oussama At oussama

    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.

  10. limon limon

    It's also not working because they offer only 50,000 free domain and it's book under couple of days.

    • It works. Please read the post carefully. Only users from US, UK and certain other countries can get the .me domain for free. Try using a US VPN.

    How to change the dns service? after change the dns, the email will come to my Mozilla Thunderbird?

    Help me.....

    • That has been explained on the post. Login to 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.

      • Prodip Prodip

        I want to get a free hosting with original cpanel. can you help?

  13. pam pam

    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,

    • 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.)

  14. ketion ketion

    when i click the buy button ,it show this " $24.00 excl. VAT/year". no free any more !!!!

    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.

    It's a scam or marketing strategy.

    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!

    • It's about time for the offer to be closed. Thanks for the information, though.

    • kumar gaurav kumar gaurav

      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,

    • Siva Mudiyanur Siva Mudiyanur
