Most horrible service and scammer, stay away from this Freenom

You can register free domain .tk so on, no one will find your URL, if you promote your sites, and as long as your site gets traffic then they will put your domain under Fraud status. Their support dont reply and the ticket number...Read More is totally meanless, and they don't understand the law and care about their service.Less

Stay away from this free domain service, you can register domain free, no one will find your site, if you promote your URL, as long as they see you have traffic of your site, then they will put your service as Fraud w/no reason. They don't care about their service and business law.

Domain stolen without warning

A domain I had registered was stolen from me with no warning or communication. When I went back to the site to look at it, they were selling it as a premium domain.

Perfect, if you can handle it.

You might have a lot of hassles, but if you finally know how to do it, you'll just have free domains.
Note that you just have to switch to a dns provider that is less slow.

Professional scammers!

One of the worst places to buy domains from. I tried connecting my free domain with google sites and guess what, my website was redirected to some kind of website which has very bad videos and other bad stuff. Don't try this ever in your lifetime

I'm a longtime TK domain user, you can try changing your nameservers to Cloudflare ones which tutorials can be found in YouTube, and then manage your hosting nameservers in Cloudflare, that should fix your issue. I had that proble...Read Morem too, apparently it's the problem where if you don't have a proper hosting set it would show the stupid Freenom World page.Less

Absolutely Horrible

All of my domains were marked as fraud when I didn't commit any fraud. I was using them for my social network hobby project when they up and suspended my account. Support never responds even if you use tickets, phone, or email. I ...Read Morewould never reccomend Freenom. Horrible company who cares about nobody. Gave 2 stars for pricing because some "free" domains are $500!Less

Raymond Hsu,
Their free domain ToS is a lot more strict than their paid plans, that's how companies work, there ain't no such thing as a free lunch!

TL;DR Freenom wants you to pay for their domains...

Worst domain registrar EVER

1.2
I've never experienced something as horrible as freenom's service in my 15 years of experience as a developer. It's simply the most horrible provider: my three domains suddenly stopped working, so I sent a lot of tickets. They sai...Read Mored: "the domain is working fine on our end, it must be something you did". Time and time again they said the same until finally, they said that my domain had violated the terms and conditions and that they wouldn't restore my account.

So my advice for you is: never ever use them for anything that you intend to actually use. I'd say, use the free domain if you really have to, but never ever purchase a domain from them or think they can be used in production. They might just cancel your products and someone called "René Broekhuis", who is the only one answering tickets, will simply make you waste your time. No ethics, no good service, just the worst of all registrars.

Stay away from them and do not let them lure you into registering a free domain —you will regret it.

Support

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.

Pricing

Low cost hosting

Freenom.com offers unlimited domains for free as long as they fall within the five categories of listed domains. All plans are on a month to month basis and can be canceled at anytime. There is no set up fee to register. Through freenom.com there is only a $10.00 refundable deposit within the first 30 days of service. All Freenom.com service include support and client portal with control panel.

More information on their money back guarantee and domain policies can be found on their website under Terms and conditions.

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

Cons:

  • Only offering shared hosting
