Free stuffs are very common on the internet and free domain names are no exceptions. Free domains are majorly used by web hosting companies as marketing strategies to pull more sales. They are also used by online advertising agencies to display adverts. Hence, you need to study an offer very well before making any commitment.
Due to the urges in many of us to get free stuffs, especially ones creatively advertised, we do not bother to go through the terms and conditions of various offers. But in reality, there are more to free offers than meet the eyes. Consequently, you should take your time to go through the terms and conditions of a free domain name offer so that you won't regret at the end.
One important issue you need to get clarification on is the ownership of the name. A domain name is like a landed property while a hosting service is like the structure that will be put on it. If you are buying a property and the land papers are not part of the documents you received, you have not bought any property. Therefore, it is important for you to find out the name that will appear on the registrar's record as the owner of the site. If it is not going to be your name, then you don't have a website. What is the essence of a free stuff that will be snatched away from you at anytime you do not expect. But if it is your name that will appear on the register, you have nothing to worry about.
Furthermore, you should seek information about the renewal fee of the domain name. It should be reasonable in comparison to others. Many free names promoters hike renewal fees in order to charge back at customers. Others will charge higher hosting rates so as to make up for the free offers. It is your responsibility to get as many information as possible so that you will be able to make the right decision that will make your online exploits a success.
