Offering another example of a dot com company falling over backwards to provide free services for users, namezero.com provides free registration of domain names (com, org, and/or net). The catch? Well, there’s at least two. First, the domain is actually registered under the name of the namezero folks, though you “retain the right, title and interest in and to the Namezero Domain name“. Second, the created page is really just a frameset with the top 90% pointing at your own content stored elsewhere and the bottom 10% a namezero navigation bar. For an example, you can look at this weblog at www.kestrelsnest.com. If you don’t mind that bar at the bottom of your pages, this might be a neat service. It has web-based and POP email (eric@kestrelsnest.com should get to me, though I haven’t tried to set that up yet) and easy to set up subdomains (again, a frameset with pointers. godot.kestrelsnest.com will take you to my Weblog for Godot, for example.). I’ve yet to find what their revenue source is. I imagine they’re planning on banner ads on the nav bar or something.
