Free domain names are a rarity, and often they are an extension of a company's website name. However today, I will digress to you how to obtain a free and relatively short domain name.
Back in the caveman days of XetoWare, there was no XetoWare.com. Lorenzo actually had to use a free domain service called Smartdots.
However as time progressed, we had to move to a more professional domain name, this website! Feels like home doesn't it?
Nevertheless, if you just want to start a free website, the place to go get a short domain name is Smartdots or DotTk, however, if you want a real domain name you should really invest some money, about five bucks, and go buy one from our favourite domain selling company: 1and1 Internet.
