Good, Free domain?

What's the best domain I can get without paying?

"good" as in: Doesnt have popups or banners, and is still conveniently small.


Is a .tk domain the best I can get?

.tk isn't a domain but a re-direct


free webspace at www.asphost.com or www**********
i'm sure there are plenty more (use google)

.tk is the only real domain name you can get for free.

If you head on over to dyndns.org you can sign up for a free subdomain like yournamehere.ath.cx (they have a big list of domains to be registered under) and all you do is point that to the IP of your server (static or fixed). It's what I use, and it's quite reliable (at least with static IP).

Also, New Year's Eve I bough a .info for $2 for 1 year from www.godaddy.com but it was a special deal. They have good service but their url forwarding is kind of annoying.

See what I'm listening too.

.tk is ok, however, last time I used them (about a year ago), they didn't have subdirectory redirection, meaning that something like "squakmix.tk/something" would just take you to the main site instead of the "/something" folder. I've gone with vze.com for years because they do support this feature, however, you get a subdomain like "squakmix.vze.com" instead of a domain.

This is a sig of some nature.
