Downloading and installing free ESXi 6

Last Modified: 2019-12-19
I want to install ESXi 6.5 on a new server and build 3 guests on that host, to purchase a license is very expensive.
How limited am I if I just download the free license?
Where can I download it from and can I use it for ever?
Do I need to register?
How do I install it?

I know I asked several questions but I would appreciate your help
