I am looking for a list of places that offers a free subdomain & dns hosting. IE a subdomain on one of their "vanity" domains. I must be able to change the A Record to point to my IP. URL redirection is not acceptable. And obviously it must be free ;)

An example is http://freedns.afraid.org/

Riiight. Look for newbie hosting companies that haven't learned all the tricks spammers use. :)

Otherwise, get your own domain registered for $8 a year and add all A records you want to it - domain hosting is now free with all domain registrations at pretty much any registrar.

No I want a list of places that offer nice vanity domains. Like the cool ones available at afraid.org - so my question still stands - does anybody know of any other services like that?

www.DynDNS.com advertises:
The free Dynamic DNS service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static hostname in any of the many domains we offer, allowing your computer to be more easily accessed from various locations on the Internet. We provide this service, for up to five (5) hostnames, free to the Internet community.

They have a slew of domains available; is-a-geek is my favorite.

I'm going to wait to see if anybody else can find any more before closing the question.
