Problem getting free license for esxi 6.5

Today my host is saying that license is expired after working 2 years just fine.

I'm trying to get it from this site:

https://my.vmware.com/en/group/vmware/evalcenter?p=free-esxi6

but after clicking Register button i got site info:

"Content Not Available

Dear user, the web content you have requested is not available. "

Any other options ? Thanks for any suggestions.

Mate, Have you earlier obtained license from that profile which you are using to login into vmware portal?

Hello.

Personally I use Waterfox (a browser based on firefox ESR) and I have no problems.

You must login with the same user and password you used to register or obtain the license. If you obtained a free license you should be in the section indicated.

I am having the same problem with registration. I did NOT previously register for free esxi 6. (the hardware I want to use it on is not supported in 7.0)

Is it the case that new users can only acquire the current version with a free license?

I retried this today in a browser with no extensions and registration succeeded.
