Hi ! Can anyone suggest me how to get free domain name? . :) . . Thnx in advance. .

As far as I know, you can not get a FREE Domain Name. Only a free sub-domain name on a free hosting site. To have your own domain name, you must purchase and re-new it each year. Many good hosting sites will set this up for you when you open a paid hosting account. Just check the different packages they offer.

If you want just a FREE Hosting Service, then check out the following:

Think I stated that, but the domains are not free. You pay for it through the hosting fee.

freedoamin.co.nr seems to be an image hosting service. www.dot.tk seems to be a URL name shortener like TinyURL.com.

Having a sub-domain means that yours is hosted under the actual domain name and appended to the URL. Kinda like this (Firefox only) one. Also, Search Engines may not ever get your site up in the page ranks as a sub-domain.
