Yes use this -> http://www.dot.tk/en/index.html?lang=en

This is probably the best free domain you can get. Much better than free hosting domains. Ends in a simple .tk extension and completely free.

I'm actually surprised .tk is still going, I remember having one back in the ezboard days (2001-2002).

You can go to 1and1.com and get a .com domain for $1 your first year. After that it's only like $15 a year. Considering it's only a dollar for a .com extension it's pretty worth it. I find myself using godaddy the most though only because the domain propagates much faster.

Surpised .tk is still up and running considering the amount of torrent and virus ridden websites used it. I run away from .tk domains. :p

I don't use TK domains either though I can't say that it would be a bad thing either. I can see how TK domains have been abused in the past but I'm not sure if would have much to do with the domain registrar in my opinion. But I think I get what you mean anyway, that you wouldn't join someones site that was Dot TK. Which I probably would if they were from forum promotion but unless it was someone I was in communication with I would stay away from them as well.

Back in the day it was the nest of people that owned a site and didn't have the money for it. I hosted my first RPG community in one of those back in 2004.

That was a very long time ago lol.

@TopSilver MindPiff.tk
Only playing around with the domain lol.
I would never allow that ;)

Personally the @Thomasss is right about one thing, that it's a turn off to other users whether they will join your site or not. That's mainly the reason I wouldn't. If you can afford a $1 Dot Com from 1and1.com then there's no need to get a dot.tk domain. It's mainly for young teenagers or children to explore free domains when they are young and don't have the money. At least that's what I did when I was a kid.

@NewsProject look for the archive of this site from 2003 (Yahpoolerz.tk). It was my site from 2003. It wasn't up long but I guarantee it was within that year. I want to see what's on it. I would be excited to see what it looked like. That was when I was 13. If you find it, I will post those 10 posts on your site by the end of the day instead of in 4-5 days guaranteed. Post the link in this thread.

No archive found. I searched for it, but the way back machine couldn’t found anything.

Don't worry about it. I will post them by the end of this coming weekend. I appreciate the search nonetheless.

LCN.com are giving away free .co.uk domains :)
names.co.uk are also but they charge you a quid, which is deposited back into your bank within 72 hours.
