    Freenom finally dead?

    Is anyone else having problems for paid domains with Freenom lately? I get lots of errors even 500 Internal Server Error and one day they had a "be back soon" notice and you couldn't log in.

    Freenom is definitely the worst of the worst for incompetence and bugs and customer service who blames you for their problems lol. And we're talking paid domains here. But no one can touch their prices for especially .net domains 6.98$. I wish another registrar could come close but best I can find is +2-3$ more.

    It looks like they are finally dead and it's time for everyone to abandon ship. I'll miss the savings that do add up with loads of domains. But honest, good riddance to them, they are worst even than 1&1 and thats saying something lol.

      i dont have any ship to abandon as i am using only free ones, i used paid ones in the past (i had a top .tk and i had to pay for it the next year)

      its working fine here man, error 500 is some website error, but that wont affect the domains

      they use shit servers in order to be able to provide people with free domains!

    • too many spammer and scammer, poor freenom

    • I haven’t been able to create new .tk domains since two months ago. I used to create these in order to receive spam mail.

      exactly, what s i mean, nowadays too many blogger spamming SERP using doorways, auto generated contents, etc.. most of them are using cheap or free domain

      I even found a tool that crafted for brute forcing freenom domain registration, register bulk domain just in single click

      maintenance requires money
