Free domain

Post by Linky on December 10th 2009, 11:35 pm

Hey guys!

I think that Forumotion should have a free fomain thing for 1 hour so people who really want one but don't have the money, have a 5/10 chance of getting one. Only 50-100 active forums will be accepted to get one.
What do you think?

My forum can get the free domain but there should be a way without filling your real name, address, phone number, people don't like giving information online.

Hello,

Forumotion doesn't give out any information to anyone without notifying you about it, Wink

But, if you want a domain name for your forum, you must give out this kind of information, so that the registrar can contact you,

This is normal with any website that you can purchase domain names from, Very good

CharleX, the free service is off for now.

zachoftheglen2, your forum must be really active in a short period of time. Thats all you need. ie. 500 - 1000 posts in the first month or so.

My forum can get the free one.
But to get it, you have to say your address phone number ECT. I think there should be a way without saying that.

Have you seen those Activity Points in your forum's administration panel? If you have a certain amount of those activity points, then you are allowed a free domain. If maintain those activity points and contribute in your forum's activity, then you can keep receiving domain names every year for free.

Also, Linky, derrick1123, MiniRadi, and dotDavid are running a free domain service site, and you can find it on ForuMansion, btw.

I saw that Rok.
I think there should be a way that you can get one WITHOUT saying personal information, on Mini's, Derrick's and dotDavid's you have to say your real name.

Some people can get a free domain right now but they have to say their address, phone number and that. There should be a way without waying that.

Why? Its for security reasons, and also, the name doesn't get used anywhere else. Or what about if we file a law suit against you, how can we fight against a username?

I thought I would mention that the topic starters original suggestion and the poll are asking for two completely different things, so what exactly are we voting for?

As said when your forum reaches a certain level of activity, you will be offered a free domain, and to be honest you won't need a top level domain before then anyway! It worked well with my forum. Having .forumotion in the address isn't that bad!

ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) doesn't allow that. Every domain name registration has to be provided and it must be real and accurate, or ICANN can claim the domain if they find the information to be inaccurate.

If, however, your domain contact information is inaccurate, you must correct it. (Under ICANN rules and the terms of your registration agreement,
providing false contact information can be grounds for domain name cancellation.) To review the ICANN policy, visit: http://www.icann.org/whois/wdrp-registrant-faq.htm
