    Hello Hari,

    Yesterday I came across this offer by google and applied for it. This offer is provided by Google with Hostgator and ICICI.

    I have registered one domain which free for first year and it was instant but the domain is not available yet and there seems some problem with their system as when I login in the control panel I see this:
    Account Setup Date 06/12/2011
    Account is free until 06/12/2011

    Which worries me :(

    Thanks and Best Regards,

    thank you very much

    Hello Hari,

    Sure I will let you know once it get rectify and i don't think Gmail account is required for this.

    Thanks for sharing the name of free web site provider but I just want to try their services and free providers comes with advertisement which doesn't look professional and give good impressions for the visitors. :)

    Thanks and Best Regards,

    As per the rules by Google they are offering a free website with .in domain and one year free hosting to only the registered businesses in India.

    If you try to register yourself on then you will need your company`s PAN and TIN.

    I think these are the two mandatory things needed for availing this free offer from google.

    Thats a good news. But google is only give the free website for only for bussiness companies not for personal websites. Also this website is not a free website it has trial pesiond also. If you want a domain name then you gave to gave price. If you want to make free website of your own then try this, This site offer you a free website but you can choose your domain like this or And also this website will not be published on the google or any search machine. If you want to publish you gave to gave the price. But you can publish by adding your website into your blog. Ok buddy.

    Dear Friends,

    India Get Your Business Online is the great initiative by Google and HostGator for Indian small businesses. The main aim and objective of the scheme is to create interest in online business. Where the small business get big identity with its website for free and service provider get the long time customer. In this case both are benefited.

    If you want to use this service then you have business. For example your uncle or family friend have computer shop or other type of shop. Then you simply registered with "India Get Your Business Online" with valid PAN no of owner. After this you can choose desired domain name and template to create website.

    The personal use of domain name is not allowed. It just only for business. I think "Home Business" also able to build there website with India Get Your Business Online. Try for it if you have business like Mehndi, Beauty-parlor, Achar or Papad Making, Tuition Classes, etc.

    Google will contact you to verify about your website with offer of Advertising. Try to grab this offer and get introduced with world.

    with best regards
