    I cant really get a domain name because I don't have a job or money yet (I'm 14). I like it because it lets me make a coverup url or something like that and because its free and some other stuff I cant remember right now. But I don't like how it adds in the favicon even if I already have one. Another is that the domain name stays the same like if I put a link the this website then it would stay the same name and all that stuff. So is there another free thing like dot.tk,thanks for the help.

    http://www.co.cc like my site.

    If you go to my site and click on links it will change the url. dot.tk (which I looked at) appears to just put the site in a frame.

    http://dmmcintyre3.tk and http://dmmcintyre3.co.cc go to the same spot so you can compare.

    the .tk is shorter and the co.cc links work properly in. the .tk forces their favicon.

    NOTE: the .co.cc is added to the site like a real domain name it is not added like the .tk is where you type the url.

    http://www.dyndns.com/ all the way man.

    I'm 16, and have been using their ___.ath.cx names for people that don't want to pay for real names (I'm a web developer).

    Like a real domain, the file structure is preserved, and there are no forced ads.

    But really, a .org name is like $4 a year.

    I sort of want to go with the co.cc one but I don't like the forced favicon.

    The favicon is not forced. Where did you see one?

    I like DynDNS because you can actually set an A-record instead of just redirecting.

    But like he (she?) said, a real domain is near-free, and it will look a lot more pro.
