Just out of curiosity why did you select 3 years then selected 12 months?

Beacuse 12 months is what you can get best for free. I accidentally clicked 3 years but i changed it for not to pay money :slight_smile:

Hi @Mustafa!
Your tutorial is looking good!
I wouldn’t recommend using Freenom. I have heard mixed experiences of people who have used them. And a free domain should be a huge red flag! You should use reputable services like porkbun.com (I use this for one .com domain) or one local (e.g. I use a UK-based service thenames.co.uk for a .co.uk and .org.uk domain). My domain eddiestech.co.uk only costs £5 a year and I get mail included.
May I also add that you should add the second part of the tutorial to this thread, you won’t need two.

Hello @EddiesTech!
Thank you for your comment. I did a tutorial about freenom because most of the people in Glitch (as i see in forum and youtube) uses freenom. And why i did this 2 parts is because i was lagging bad, (my computer is not very strong) i couldnt do it longer. I will get the second part ready in my tablet. :innocent:

It’s fine to do it in 2 parts, just don’t make a new thread. Make a new post on this thread :slight_smile:

Cloudflare regestrar is pretty good, I got my $100 a year domain down to $8 a year.

Luckily for me I don’t make any mistakes :sunglasses:

And use probably the best domain registrar, porkbun.

Expect the .at domain which I plan on buying, they are the cheapest.
