    • No there's a hard administrative cost to any decent domain names. As mentioned they are commonly included in hosting package bundles costing around $8 a month ($96 a year) and cost the same in following years. You can find .info names for $2 in the first year, some believe they end up taking a year longer to get decent search ranking. There have been occasional free domain names, but they are trouble worse than a subdomain, Google actually banned 11 million free co.cc domains from their index because too high a percentage were used for devious purposes, too easy to use in risky schemes.

    • Sure...for about a year. Many web hosts will offer you free domain names for a year in exchange for a hosting contract. Once the year is up, you will have to renew the domain name and it will cost you.
