 New user completely lost now that my ESXi client says the license is expired

I'm fairly new to the VM server world.  I had my main house shares set up on a windows VM but I had to move my home server.  Now the client is telling me my license has expired.  My google-fu also failed to find just where I can request a new free/trial license.

I know it's a simple thing, but I find the new broadcom site very confusing.

Can anyone just point me to a simple "GO HERE"?

Much thanks in advance

VMware/Broadcom unfortunately decided to discontinue the Free ESXi Hypervisor, so you won't be able to register for a new license anymore.
