Anyone knows anything about www.dotfree.com (the same company that has cz.cc/cx.cc etc)?
Apparently they want to give away .free domains... in 2012
There's not a lot of info about it on the internet?

It still needs to be approved by ICANN, there is most likely going to be a catch and it would only be for 2012 at the earliest.

If you post a five pointer each day, you can have a .com or .net domain in may 2011 (the second of may if I calculated correctly). Dancing

Frihost is way better than dotfree.com. Very Happy

Only 1 .FREE domain name per person allowed to register

Some clarification about the process:

- only non-premium domains are currently available for preregistration. This means that certain domain names are reserved until the official launch.

- several users can preregister the same domain. If that happens, there will be an auction during the official launch.

- VIP memberships will be activated at launch, but everyone can already "upgrade to VIP" for free to allow several preregistrations.

for those of you wondering, dotFree just hit the 50,000 pre registered domains mark.

The website was also recently updated: http://www.dotfree.com

So it will more like a paid service. I guess VIP members will get priority over standard members at launch.

Gee, so how exactly is this "free" Rolling Eyes - I bet there's a LOT of domains preregistered by multiple users...
I preregistered my initials (xxx.free) but there's no way I will actually PAY for it... it's bit too long for me (looks ugly to be honest).

Already they applied for .free GTLD and pre registration is allowed only 1 /account or person. You can upgrade to VIP account with is free now. anyway you want to pay $5/15 domains per year in your VIP account.

But did they actually get permission to release it?
I mean - you kind of throw money on something without even knowing they can provide... Shocked
Almost sounds like a scam - milk everyone and then say: sorry, folks we tried but we can't provide .fee after all Rolling Eyes

.free sounds really annoying if you ask me. $8-10 for a .com or anything else is not terrible you could just skip having subway for dinner for a couple nights or something.

First i too think it is a type of scam. Before they really applied for .free to ICANN , Asper ICANN decision giving approval for new domain TLDS .free (for free) will be good choice. i wish to dotfree to get approval from icann.

Hi,

behind of the .FREE domain names is standing an international company dotFree Group s.r.o. which has lots of expirence in running an own registry. .FREE will be for FREE as you hear in the name and i think that is the main concept. Preregistration is for free, costs you nothing and is it a normal stage for every new upcomming gTLD. They are well conected to the ICANN as they are active at the ICANN meetings and they have for sure enough funds to cover costs for an aplication fee to apply for .FREE
They can be succesfull as .CO or the others.

Thank you for your interest in .FREE domain names!!!
