Domain names

Is there anywhere were I can register a domain name for free, or do they all have to be paid for? If so, who's the cheapest?

If depends on which domain names.

The usual .com, .org and .net -names can all be registered for free - but you still need to pay the $70 fee for two years of registreation to the InterNIC.

Perhaps you can convince someone to waive that fee if you buy some space at their webhotel - I haven't heard of any.

http://www.register4free.com/

- and MANY others.

Most registrars will also park your domain name for free.

If you want to register a foreign name - for instance a .dk (Denmark) or .co.uk - you'll have to contact the hotmaster of that "top level domain" to find a registrar in that country.
