Free Domain Registrars

Posted by DuDo | | Category: |

If you are looking out for a free domain extensions or redirects for your blogs. I wont recommend you all to main a site under a free domain name but if you are in an extremely critical situation and out of cash and do not really have any other option then here I am reviewing the top free domain Registrars around in the Internet.

Here is the list :

1) .CO.CC – This is the most popular free domain registrar out there and offers a lot of features like URL Redirection, adding own Nameservers, CNAME, A, MX, TXT records, Google Apps, Windows Live Custom domain etc. This is the leading free domain used by people who are just starting out in the internet as well as experienced people. This registrar takes our number no. 1 spot in the top fee domain registrar list. This domain extension is also quite search engine friendly compared to other free domain extensions. .co.cc Domains which are used for personal purposes are free for lifetime but you will need to renew it each year (for free) while domain which will be used for commercial purposes are free for the first year and after that you will need to renew it at 3$ per year. Domains which have keywords or names very popular will cost your around 3$+. The commercial and non-commercial thing is just a saying, there is no such check even if you use the free domain for commercial purposes. You can register up to 4 domains from a single account. The good thing is that it can be easily used for your blogger account by editing the CNAME records.

CO.CC:Free Domain

2).CZ.CC:  The number 2 on the list comes .cz.cc. This is a relatively  new domain registrar compared to .co.cc but has gained much popularity in its small lifetime. This domain registrar too provides all the features that URL Forwarding, Nameservers and Zone Records. You can register up to 5 domains here and it is free for life time ( you got to renew it every year but it is free for each year). This domain registrar also provides options like SSL, Privacy, Lock and also allows you to push your domain to some other account at quite cheap prices unlike .co.cc which does not allow these features. You also get a 1$ dollar credit when you sign up which can be used to but these additional features. You can get more free credits by completing some free offers and surveys.
3) eu.tv: This is also a relatively new free domain registrars compared to the others. It is domain registrar based in Turkey. It was released along with it’s sister domain registrar .co.tv. Like the others it provides features like link cloaking, URL redirection, Nameservers, MX , Free Zone Records, Sitebuilder, Google Apps, Windows Live etc. The good thing that this domain registrar does is provides as sitebuilder so if you are in need of a very basic site then this domain can come to very good use. The cost of premium (i.e Keyword or one word domains) is 99.99$
4).co.tv: It is the same as .eu.tv since they are from the same owners only the extension name is different.
5) .TK : The number three spot goes to .tk. .tk is the oldest free domain registrar that is there online. Did you know that .tk is the official country level tld of Tokelau, a country in the South Pacific. The main reason that they are giving this clTLD free is because they want to help the Government of Tokelau by the royalty fees that is earned when a domain is sold. When I first started the internet I could see a lot of .tk links all over. At that time websites using .tk domains were forced to put up .tk’s advertisements(called tikilinks) in their website (it showed at the header location in the website just like sites hosted on Godaddy’s free hosting) and they allowed only URL Redirection and did not provide for Nameservers services. But now things have changed drastically. Now, we can use Custom Nameservers with .tk domains as well as URL redirection. We can register unlimited amount of domains, the only condition is that you atleast recieve more than 25 visitors in your domain every 90 days.
6) .co.nr: This domain registrar is one of the other very first free domain registrar like .tk. But like .tk they were very late in implementing custom nameservers system which made them loose a lot users to the other free domain registrar like .co.cc and .cz.cc but now they are providing custom nameservers facilities now. Even though they are still not providing facilities like MX and Zone Records.
7) freedns.afraid.org: Afraid.org is also one of the very first free domain registrars. When it started it had only a few subdomains and a few long domains under which they could provide DNS services but now there is more than 58,510 domains and sub domains you can choose from. And there are some very cool short domains to choose from for e.g. info.tm, biz.tm, iz.rs, ro.it. You can change NS, DNS details, MX etc.
There are Some other free domain registars  in the internet but they do not allow Custom Nameservers, they only allow URL redirections. Here is the list:
8 ) www.c-o.in : You can choose from four domain extension .c-o.in, .c-o.cc, .coz.in, .cq.bz. It allows URL redirection with cloaking
9) Joynic.com : This free domain registrar also provides URL Redirection only. Some domain extensions you can register .us.tt, .uk.tt, .ca.tt, .eu.tt. There are other extensions too check the list here.

10) .eu.org : Get free .eu.org domain here. It is a little bit lengthy process but you do get a domain after all. Well but setting this domain up you will need a DNS server to host your domain.
