View Full Version : My Domain Zero domains...
February 21st, 2001, 05:15
I registered them a few months when DomainZero was first new. Ya know, free. Except for their email ads and stuff.
Okay... I'm REALLY going to need these domains once their first year is up. Am I going to be able to re-register them, or what?
Does anyone know? Can I renew them now, myself? Maybe I can't... because they have a transfer lock thing on them right??
When the year is up whats going to happen? Anyone???
I'm deeply worried :)

I had the same problem. Registered a free domain.
BUT I also didn't like the ads on my domain. And now I saw that they don't offer free domains any more...
Guess they couldn't cover there costs with ads. (just my speculation)
You sure can keep your free domain until it expires. But don't ask me if they are going to reregister it after that time...
(And it could change until it is time to renew it!)
What you can do is following: Switch to Namezero Plus for ~$25.
Then you get also rid of the ads.
(I did that: http://www.kersche.net
And you can also transfer your domain afterwards to a cheaper registrar.
Read the other threads about Namezero, there are plenty in this forum!!

He was talking about DOMAINzero, not NAMEzero... Two totally different services. :)

If this is the one that we all signed up for a year ago during their free promotion... You can change. I just did.

Both of them started about a year ago. NameZero offered a free domain name, but you did not own it... It was registered in their name and you could only redirect it to another site. Also you were forced to have a huge ad banner at the bottom of the screen.
DomainZero registered for free and the domain was actually in your name and functioned normally... I.E., you point it to the DNS of your choosing and can have it hosted wherever you want. There were no ad banners. The only catch was you had to agree to receive some spam e-mails for a year. Not too many of their advertisers ever sent anything though, so I don't think they made much money. They only lasted a couple of months or so.
