Any "free" hosting i've gotten in the past usually kills itself off after a while and then sells your email to every spam-nazi there is.

"Free Domain" - That looks cool in forums not on web hosting servers

Money's not Everything in this world - There's MASTERCARD and VISA!!

I've used DynDNS.org before to admin the DNS on one of my domains (cuz I've got a bunch of hostnames on it pointing to my cablemodem here at home)...

What kind of info were you after?

Hee, I feel flattered that you remember me b_heyer, I really am.

Anyhow, domains are disgustingly cheap nowadays, godaddy is generally what I use, and it’s only about (rounded) $9.00 per domain. A few years ago I remember someone trying to give out free domains and I almost signed up. Thank God I didn’t because what happens is that *you* don’t own the domain. After a while I’m sure they killed off the server, while now having a list of popular domains. (And tried to sell if back to you at a ridiculous amount)

She God, were you taken by a dot con? I hope not... but, if so, what happened?

Axe, http://www.dyndns.org/ is the exact company I had in mind. I'm ok with the principals, what concerns me is the reliability. Have you experienced a lag between IP re-assignments and DNS updates? Has an auto-updated ever failed? You know... did the service live up to expectations.

Naw, Like I said, I *almost* did it. But I sort of guessed that anything free usually comes with a price. This was a few years ago too, when domains had *just* gotten over being $35, and were down to the low price of only $15. (Annnd you could register them without paying first, hehe, that was a silly time)

I think I just waited a year and got my dad to get me a domain for my birthday. *Smiles* Then godaddy opened up and I had enough money then to throw around to buy two more domains. Woo-ha

I've been more than happy with DynDNS.org's services. I paid $30 when it was just a one-off fee for lifetime dynamic DNS with my own domain (I believe it's an annual fee now, but I could be wrong. I signed up when it was still in trials and they were still debating whether it would be a worthwhile venture).

Like I said, MORE than happy. If I did an nslookup, then changed the IP, it'd take 5-10 minutes for it to update and reflect in another nslookup. If I hadn't previously looked (in the last 10 minutes), and just changed it, then did an nslookup, it was an instant change.

I ran a script on my Linux box so that every time Comcast goofed my IP and changed it, it would automatically update, and that worked great - I mostly used it just to have my Linux box here at home as the primary MX for one of my domains, so that's why it was handy to have the dynamic IP assignment for it.

I've actually been using their free service (yourname.dyndns.org) for about 6 years now, since shortly after they started up, and it's always been pretty reliable.

Read the last post by Axe. Some various of domains are free.

As for registering you.own.domain.com... registration fees apply.
