Elsewhere, .design domains can cost $70 or more but by partnering directly with .design we’re able to not only get free first year names, but only $35 for all annual renewals.
Free name package includes a year of free email hosting. Whois privacy and SSL certs are always free! If you’ve already secured your free name but have multiple projects in mind, get as many domains as you want for $5 with code DESIGNERNEWS*
*Does not apply to premium names (e.g., nyc.design, smith.design, visual.design).

Wow, this is awesome!
Is the $35 renew offer valid only on the first checkout or with all future ones?
Hey Pino! - That should be the case, but I'd send them a note and double check just to be sure: https://web.design/support
Hi, this is Ross from Porkbun, the registrar that runs and supports web.design and this free/$5 offer. Pino, to answer your question, it's the first checkout AND all future ones. Our current renew rate is $35.51 for all non-premium .design domains. You can even renew for multiple years at that rate if you like.
Hey Ross. Is the deal expired? The /$5 code is working but not the "free first year". Can you help me with that?
Yay!!! I got http://handoff.design
How I intend to use it : I plan to put together all the resources & articles related to the design handoff process. There's great progress made by a lot of tool-makers & nifty ideas/tricks being used by many design-teams — I think it would be an interesting place to have it all together.
I've already kickstarted this by mustering up a brief template that designers could use. I'm refining it by getting lots of feedback from many teams operating in different conditions.
P.S. I'm redirecting http://handoff.design to that post for now, while I work on a proper website.
This is such a great deal, but I can't think of a great .design domain that I want to register. :(
Same here :(
If you're still stuck, we have a tool to help you brainstorm ideas: https://web.design/namespinner
Some other thoughts:
I encourage folks with unique last names to secure theirlastname.design because someone with last name "Smith" is not so lucky. It will either be taken already or more expensive than $35.51 as most common last names are "premium" and thus more expensive.
You could always just use a .design domain as a branded forward or URL shortener until you're further inspired to do something unique with the domain.
The free deal isn't going away any time soon, so feel free to take your time deciding, just remember…someone else might snag it up first!
thank you DN _^
Going to use it for my portfolio. Awesome!
Thank you! :)
