I used to employ Freenom domains to serve static assets. Back in HTTP/1.1 era, static assets should be served from a separate domain, so that browser doesn't spend upload bandwidth to send cookies. This is no longer necessary in HTTP/2, because cookies are uploaded with the first request and compressed away on subsequent requests.

Now I use Freenom domains for pranking. My latest is yoursunny-summer-host.cf , which is posted on various web hosting forums.

Remember that Freenom domains are not owned by you if you select the FREE registration. You only get usage rights that they can take away at any time.
