Something a miss

You try to purchase a free site, it says sure we have these. once you signup it says order number but at the bottom in small print there was a technical error this order is cancelled. when you check again it says no domain is avalaible. absulutly shocking and crap. dot.tk on its own was better.

Limited contact options

Freenom.com has over two lines of communication. They can be reached by live phone or email.  Once you get in touch with them they seem like they are able to solve your problems fairly quickly from what I have found.  They really don't talk too much about their support, however, which is unfortunate.

Summary

Great option for free domains and low cost hosting

Freenom.com has a very structured reseller plan that allows users to have the flexibility of managing multiple accounts from one extensive interface. I would recommend Freenom.com based on the amount of  reseller solutions they offer at little to no price upfront. Freenom gives businesses and partnering countries the opportunity to create local content within their community. If you're looking for a company to grow your business with, then I recommend using Freenom for their reseller program. Their free unlimited domains is unmatched in the hosting community. And with no set up fees and only $10 to get started, its a  no brainer to choose them for your next hosting solution.

Pros:

  • 30 day money back guarantee
  • Free domains (specific top level domains)

Cons:

  • Only offering shared hosting
  • Limited tech support options
