How to get a free domain name + 1 year free hosting from DreamHost ?

If you are thinking it’s a joke, it’s NOT. Here is a fully working trick to get a FREE 1-year domain name + Free Unlimited Hosting from DreamHost. Dreamhost is one of world’s most popular and reliable services.

We had tried this method and it worked flawlessly.

Follow the steps below carefully to get 1-year domain and Unlimited Dreamhost hosting Free:

Step 1. Sign up for Free Dreamhostapps account. Choose dreamhosters sub-domain in step1. In step 5 fill up your details and sign up.

Step 2. Visit

Step 3. Enter this URL, into the text box and click on surf.

Step 4. Click on Sign up Now and choose to Host a domain.

Step 5. Fill all the information properly (use one year plan etc.)

Step 6. Very Important – While entering the address choose country as US and not IN. Also enter the same email address which you used for DreamHostApps.

Step 7. Use the Code BARCAMPLA7 for 100% discount.

Step 8. Enjoy!

Code BARCAMPLA7 (got this using Twitter search for “Dreamhost code”), provides 100% discount, but only for US locations ( so choose country as US ).

  6. Raju says:

    Great tip! I hope it works!! will try once I get back home

  7. john chan says:

    doesn’t work.

    • Pratyush says:

      Can you tell me where exactly it went wrong ? I might help you out (as you can see others are telling that it still works).

      • Pratyush says:

        P.S. I guess you are getting wrong at the “Code step.” It needs to be entered at the page where the personal details are asked (after Name, address, referral and before terms and conditions.)

        Hope that sorts out the matter.

  8. Vidit says:

    F$%#ing awesome man, it works, you just saved my $100 :D.

  9. hehe says:

    It works. But I do not know how to use it, can you please teach me how to upload files and setup WP?

  10. Mezanul says:

    Great info but buddy its not working for me πŸ™
    I put new york and country US but it is saying “Promo code error: Promo code invalid for your region!”

    • Pratyush says:

      I think you didn’t use kproxy. Please follow the steps VERY carefully and enjoy the hosting :D.

      • Mezanul says:

        I did used KProxy.. but still it gives me that error. I even tried changing the city to Los Angeles but the same error… Guess I missed it πŸ™

        Anyways thanks for the info of this great offer πŸ™‚ At least some must have got it to work πŸ™‚

        • Pratyush says:

          Hey Mezanul, kproxy was just one of those proxy sites on American Servers. The site just traces the IP. I will suggest you to try with other proxy site at :

          They all should work as long as servers are in US.

          • Mezanul says:

            Thanks Pratyush,
            I was atlast successful in registering my account. I have a few questions. Can I now change my account information to my real name and address? Will they cancel my account if they find out? Please reply..

          • Pratyush says:

            Yes Mezanul, you can change the details once you have successfully registered and approved :D.

  11. Vinay says:

    Hello Mayur,

    Thanks for your help to the community but I am getting this message
    “Promo code error: The β€œBARCAMPLA7? promo code is no longer active, sorry!”

    Am I late now?


  19. Pratyush says:

    Yeah man, the code has expired πŸ™ . Anyhow, it was a very good trick and I hope that most of you made use of it :D.

    However code ‘777’ is alive and gets you 90% discount. That is dirt cheap too and you can use it using the above trick :D.

    Will keep sharing new codes here, so keep checking out this position :D.

  20. Jaspreet says:

    In-case you guyz have missed the “completely free offer” and are still willing to shelf some money then here is another promo code “MAX2009” which is working at the moment! This gives $97 dollars discunt.

    This code will get you an aproximate discount of 90% for a 1 Year plan.

    Other working promos is “SML50” which gives $50 discount. There are few othes listed here , ( I am not sure wheter they will work out, but worth a try if you are looking for something free! )

    Happy Trying,

  21. Jaspreet says:

    Other codes which give away reasonable amount of discounts are “MAX2009” and “SML50”.

    Guyz try these, before the expire and if you want something!
