After the death of the free internet
, NameZero is shutting down. This writeup stays as a monument to the internet's more innocent past.
Namezero is a company who will, at absolutly no cost to you, register your domain name and put it's own ads on it. I know this sounds like a great deal, but it's not. You never own the domain, you just tell them where to make it go. You get no hosting, of course. You can't edit the DNS entrys to use web based mail, you have to use the one POP3 account that they give you. The only good thing about them is that their servers work a lot more than they used to, about 80% of the time.
