    Hi, this is Ross from Porkbun support. No, you can use another hosting company just fine. In fact, we include a tool to quickly connect your domain to Wix, Squarespace or Weebly. We can also help you connect your domain to just about any other hosting service. Just email me at support@porkbun.com and I'll work with you until your domain's pointed at the hosting service of your choice.

    Hi, this is Ross from Porkbun support. The vast majority of desirable domains are included within this free offer. However, as Mike noted, certain domains are excluded from the offer because they are marked as premium by the .design registry. Common first names, short words, and numbers often classified premium. Feel free to contact me at support@porkbun.com if you have any questions about our pricing.

    If you're still stuck, we have a tool to help you brainstorm ideas: https://web.design/namespinner

    Edit:

    Some other thoughts:

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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!

    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.
