How to get your Free Domain name

It was 12 years ago when I bought my first domain and it was for free. I bought the domain from a site called dot.tk (now freenom.com) which is the top-level domain of several countries.

Why is it a free domain?

The country of Tokelau, Gabon, Mali, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea gives opportunities for all users & small businesses to register a domain for free.

These free domains are operated by freenom which is the world’s first and only domain provider.

Why is Domain Free?

This domain can be owned by anyone in this world for free and use it like any other regular .com domain names for their blogs, websites, shopping websites, etc. So I personally thank Freenom and the countries that are offering these free domains.
