How long will a suspended domain be available for OTHER users?

Service used: Shared
Thank you guys for providing such a awesome service! I notice that suspended domains will be kept for a period of time, as you commented. I am wondering how long the period will be. Do you mean the free user will just keep the suspended domains forever if they don't take any action?

Dear Jimmy,

Thank you for your feedback. When a freedomain is expired because the user didn't renew it in time, we keep the domain unavailable for other free users for 2 - 4 weeks. We do not disclose the exact time and it does ...Read More

Dear Beto,

Thanks for your feedback. I am with you; it's unfortunate that all these screaming negative reviews hardly ever result in an open discussion about the domain in question.

Freenom just E-mailed me saying that I am not using the domain benax.cf, however, I already canceled the domain a few weeks ago. I feel like there is definitely something wrong with my account, can you please help ?
Freenom
Dear Kuroda,

You registered the domain again on March 24, right? So I presume the error code is gone. I have not been able to find any error related reason.

What about resellers?
I'm a Freenom domain reseller and I have read many bad comments about freenim that they charges more on next payments and cancels domain without any reason etc. Are they correct?
Freenom
Dear Muhammad,

We have NEVER charged more in the next payment. In fact, Freenom sells domains (not our own TLDs, but .com, .net etc) at cost price. The only reason why a price can increase is when the reseller has an account in...Read More

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.

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. If you are not fully satisfied with their services, Freenom.com also offers 30 day money back guarantee depending on the amount of domains registered.

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
