For all I know, ESXi is free for download and has a period of 60 days free usage with full access to all features, after those 60 days you cannot manage the Hypervisor anymore, for instance, when the grace period is over I cannot create any more VMs.
So I dont think there is such "free for one server" but you might want to discuss that with your VMware Sales Rep instead.
