Nothing wrong with a subdomain for forums like this where it's most chill and more of a hobby. But not great for businesses, professional websites etc.

That's virtually what this place is for me is a hobby. I don't plan on making a profit off of it or turning in to a professional site or nothing.

A completely free domain might look weird, but to those unconcerned, it could be highly useful! I mean, renewal of domains is a massive "pain in the arse" - if you have many domains. Imagine, never having to pay a renewal!

Anyhow, extensions like .tk, .ml are only free for a year! That's the kicker! Well, that's what it seemed to be. Has it changed now? Am I mistaken?

Oh, the subdomain stuff is always free. You know, you simply get a subdomain of some big company like prophbb.com - LOL.

Many say the same thing about non-traditional extensions like - .xyz or .club.

Somehow I don't think it's free. Maybe really super cheap, but I doubt it's totally free though

There used to be .tk and .co.cc, but I thought I read somewhere that Google blacklisted those because scammers. Sucks because I wanted .co.cc for this forum
I wouldn't worry so much with search engines - cause it's practically impossible to do SEO these days. You'd have to be super-rich! However, though, some people would like to at least have their site come up when someone is searching the site name.
