  • The island nation of Tokelau is offering free .tk domain names. Here’s some more information on this program from their Dot.tk ambassador program that I am participating in:
      Hi Everyone!I’m writing today to let you know some really cool news. I just became a Dot TK Ambassador! If you don’t already know about Dot TK (www.dot.tk) it is the exclusive domain Registry for the islands of Tokelau, a tiny group of islands
      in the South Pacific, with 1,500 people.

      Tokelau is very poor and very isolated, but we all hope to see that change in the very near future! Dot TK has created the Tokelau Internet Project, which is attracting the worlds attention to the needs of Tokelau, as well as securing funding and new technologies for the island. They desperately need better communications, education and medical care! One of the ways Dot TK is spreading the word about Tokelau is by GIVING away their domains for FREE!

      I have registered my FREEDOMAIN.TK site(s) already. Please take a second and visit!

      WWW.GARDENBLOG.TK
      WWW.TSALAGI.TK

      The important thing is that as an Ambassador, I have committed to tell all my friends and family about Tokelau and Dot TK. So, today I am asking you to please visit www.dot.tk and read about Tokelau. Then, before you leave the site, register at least one FREEDOMAIN.TK domain (you can actually have up to three if you want!). You will see that a lot of the great domain names are still available!

      Please use the following Ambassador Coupon Number during the registration process to make sure thatthe Tokelau registry knows you came through me!

      The Ambassador Coupon Number to use is: 11926

      Our goal is to get 1,000,000 FREEDOMAIN.TK registrations. So, please join me in helping Tokelau by registering a FREEDOMAIN.TK domain today.

      It’s really easy to register and it only takes a few minutes. Also, once you have registered, if you want to help Tokelau even more, you can become a Dot TK
      Ambassador, too!

      Let me know if you have any questions…
      Thanks!

      Deputy Ambassador

  • 1and1.com is offering free webhost accounts that allow you to use mulitiple domain names, phpbb and quite a few other features. I’m using them for one of my other websites The Oklahoma Design Group and thus far have been pleased with them. The free services last for 3 years. After that it cancels unless you want to pay for hosting after that.
