Today I really found something very interesting. Most of us are familiar with som .co.cc or dot.tk free domain name registration services, but we are always looking for alternatives. Even I was looking out for free alternatives so today I found a bunch of free alternative (domain name registration services and URL redirection services included in the list). I will quickly list the free alternatives. I would strongly recommend to carefully check terms and conditions before using these free services for your business or personal blog.

Especially since you have the option of free .NetZ.gr subdomain hosting that takes care both domaina and hosting for you.
Here’s the list to explore:

  1. co.nr is absolutely free, and it is “for Life”. No setup fees, no monthly fees, no yearly fees, no renewal fees, etc. You can use your free domain name as long as you wish. It will take you 5-10 minutes to signup and your domain will be activated immediately. You only need a website to point your domain to it and you can begin using your free domain name! The Basic Free Domain Package provides really FREE .co.nr  (no hidden fees) and features like
    • Free URL Forwarding, known as Free URL Redirection
    • Intelligent Free Path Forwarding and Advanced Free META TAGS support
