How to get free domain in Nepal?

Owning your own domain name looks far more professional than having your site on someone else’s domain (like, and it’s super affordable(free in NEPAL), too. Plus, having your own hosting will also make sure your website loads quickly and won’t go down for hours at a time (pretty important for everyone who visits your pages).

To get rid of the ads, connect a custom domain and unlock more features, users have to upgrade their accounts. In other words, technically, you can design and publish your website without spending a cent, but in reality, this website will either display a noticeable advert or will be placed on a subdomain.

Getting domain name does not means you creating a website. It should be hosted in a web server before you can visit your website. In this tutorial only I am going to show is, how to get free domain name in Nepal. To host your domain name for free from any web hosting company.

Fill the form carefully and create account. Details should be same as your citizenship.

After creating account login to your account. You will find a search bar there. Search for available domain name you want to register. The domain name should be an exact match, abbreviation or acronym of the registrant’s name of trademark.

Administrative contact

Fill up other details carefully and should me matching to your citizenship.

Technical contact

After filling this form you will need to provide a scanned copy of a cover letter (hand written is better) and citizenship (or similar document) to verify yourself. Example of a cover letter is given below. Both front and back view of citizenship must be shown in the scanned copy, and the image (scanned copy) should be less than 800 KB. You can also use your camera to get the photos.

After that Photoshop the images to get both face in a single image. Also if the file gets greater than 800 KB decrease the pixel of your document. I recommend to use jpeg image format because it is compressed and is smaller in size than other image formats.

After that your domain name will be in pending list to be reviewed by staffs. Don’t forget to confirm any conformation you got in your email. It may take up to 2 working days to activate your domain name. Once activated you will receive a email from them.
