    How And Why Of Giving Away Free Domain Names


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Perhaps you already know that it is possible to get a free domain name.However, have you ever wondered how a country can afford to give away its domain names for free? Why would a country just give away its domain names instead of charging for them?

    1. Free Domain Names from Dot TK

    It is possible to get a free top-level domain name from Dot TK (www.dot.tk).

    According to their website, "Dot TK is a joint venture of the Government of Tokelau, it's communication company Teletok and Taloha, Inc., a privately held company. The Government of Tokelau has appointed Taloha, Inc. as the exclusive registration entity."

    Of course, for free .tk domains, ownership remains with Dot TK. This means that you can't sell it. As well, there are other restrictions and disadvantages of free .tk domains, including:

    -You can register only a maximum of three free domain names;
    -You need 25 visitors within a ninety day period;
    -You need to have existing web content somewhere so that your dot tk name can be forwarded to it; and
    -Dot TK uses frames to show your website. This being the case, you may have issues with navigation (bookmarking or finding specific pages) and search engine friendliness.
