Re: DSL users now get free website hosting

I think he said new accounts and new domain names only.
Existing accounts, new domains. We don't want to exclude our existing customer base on this. The "new domains only" part is a limitation of the tool at the moment, which we intend to remove (no ETA on that just yet).

Do you happen to know whether the ETA is more like days or weeks or months? I ask because my domains with a different registrar are up for renewal, and it would be great to just transfer them to Sonic.

Months, if ever. The priority list is pretty huge here, and this isn't as critical as other items. The theory being that "everyone can use one more domain/website" for free.

We would be happy to be the registrar for your domains, the upside would be that you'd have a single point of contact for everything. Pricing is $9.95 per year, and you can manage this transfer in our member tools, linked on the left side of the home page.

Can I transfer one or more domains to Sonic, and take advantage of the free hosting package using one of those transferred domains, without registering a new domain? Or do I have to register a new one for the free hosting to work? (I would like to take advantage of the free hosting without having another domain name to renew every year.)

No, I'm sorry, this is only offered one way at this point - a newly registered domain.

If in future a site idea or domain name you'd like comes to you, you'd be able to use this. Note that we'll be offering the free hosting forever, but the free first year of domain registration is a special offer which may be withdrawn at some point.
