Free and paid domains

Freenom is the world's first and only free domain provider. Our mission is to bring people online and help countries develop their digital economy. Free domains work exactly like any other domain name. You can use it for your website, your blog, email account and more! You can choose to run your free domain with URL Forwarding, free Freenom DNS Service or your own DNS (Name servers). Domain extensions currently available for free registration:

Free, Paid and Special Domains

Not all domains can be registered for free. A limited number of domains are considered "Special" and can only be purchased. Their price varies and pricing is displayed during the availability check.

For example, all 1, 2 and 3 character domains, as well as common dictionary keywords, are considered Special.

All other domains (those that are not Special) can be either purchased (Paid domain) or registered for free (Free domain). Compare and choose between the two options using the table below:

Other Top Level Domains

Freenom does not only operate Free Domains. As an ICANN accredited registrar Freenom operates most of the other top level domains as well. And better: these regular domains are sold at Cost Price. That's right - we sell them for the price we buy them at the registry.

You can now manage all your domains, free or paid, from one single interface: at Freenom. We support generic top level domains, such as COM, NET and ORG, but also country domain extensions.

Even the new top level domains such as .BERLIN or .BLUE are sold at Cost Price. Welcome to Freenom.
