    Free Domains

    Now that the UNI.CC network are not offering DNS forwarding until 2005, does anyone know where you can get free DNS forwarding (I've seen nic.biz.ly, but any others would be good); just to use before I persuade my dad to by me a domain name .

    Thanks.

    Tell your dad to buy you the domain name, and show him
    this thread in this forum.

    In the U.S., a domain name is what $25-$40 bucks for two years?

    Dad, the kid is 13 and interested in the internet ... the future is
    wide open for your kid ... by him/her the domain name!

    The re-direct stuff is worthless ... and you'll have to deal with the
    search engines in the future. Don't waste your time with it.
    Buy your own name.

    www.godaddy.com
    www.registerfly.com

    I've always dealt with registerfly, but godaddy's a bit cheaper (prolly worth the difference for registerfly though...)

    $10 a year is very very small.

    As for forwarding, I think I've heard something about http://www.dhs.org/ regarding that?

    Well, maybe not your own name, but something close could work, too.

    "buy your own domain name".

    I guess that's what I meant ...
    I can't type very well.
