Let's Get Your Own Free Domain

In the era of internet everyone wants their online presence , but having an online presence is not so simple as it seems. To have your own website , you should have a domain name otherwise it would be like yourname.blogspot.com or yourname.wordpress.com

Domain names such as .com , .me , .io , .org are not free, they usually have a huge price range which might not be affordable for you. So today I'm going to share some services which provides free domain names.

.

But always remember in this world everything costs so if you're getting a free domain you should use it only for testing because free domains have so much disadvantages. I would recommend getting a paid domain from services such as namecheap spending few bucks.

Disclaimer : I do not endorse any websites listed above and Iā€™m not liable for any damages occurred to you by using these services. Use these websites at your discretion.

ā€¢ .TK .CF .ML .GA .GQ

With freenom you can plenty of free domains such as .tk , .cf , .ml , .ga, .gq without the need of any credit card or financial information.

Just Register at https://freenom.com and search for your preferred domain then buy it for free.

Some people claimed that freenom took their domain and demanded money , I don't think that's true because as you can see this blog is even using .tk domain (okay , okay , I used .tk as an experiment that google indexs all sites which got some pretty impressive contents , no matter which domain you're using)

visit https://freenom.com and get a free domain today

ā€¢ .DX.AM

Provided with awardspace free web hosting.

It comes with a very useful control panel and much more useful features as well as free web hosting.

Note that the last four are actually subdomains which are free because the domains are already paid.

According to my experience, .tk had been adware a while ago. If that's still the case, mind that using it is a security risk for your visitors.

As I mentioned in the first place that these should be used for experiments and testing.

Actually I want a .com or .co domain very badly but being a high school student it's very costly to me that's I why I added the donating option so that kind hearted persons can donate me few bucks to help me get a .co domain

2018 ALL reviews seem very very bad like hostadvice.com/hosting-company/fre...
I had a (free) domain for several years without problems. But after some time (and probably higher google ranking) the domain is suddenly considered as special. This means that the further free domain is removed from my account. But i can reregister it for money now... thats not fair. There was no further information, notification regarding this issue from Freenom. The domain was properly renewed. So it was not expired.

As you can see above i suggested to use free domains just for experiments and testings , in serious case paid domains should be used.

I also wants to buy a paid domain (palash.co or pala.sh , one of these domains i want) , but being a student i really don't have money to spend on buying a domain for my blog , I'm currently waiting for kind hearted persons to donate a little so I can buy my domain. šŸ˜Æ

OK I will experiment : I have registered lepinekong.ml and learn-ai.ml I don't care if they rip them off :)

Maybe people didn't renew within the latest 15 days frame before expiration that's why they had to pay. I'll see in one year.

I've had Freenom remove and even ban a few of my domains with no explanation. I even created a domain which pointed to a video by David Icke and London Real with their permission, but later discovered that Freenom had deleted the domain and tagged it as "Fraud" , again with no real explanation other than "buy it next time" attitude! They literally implied that if I don't want my free domains being removed or banned, I should consider paying for them. That is not FREE, that is blackmail!
