I don't need any search results, and the site itself will be small and use
very little traffic.
Google of course brings up thousands of SEO pages with a variety of free
Do you know of a free domain server that you might recommend?
Re: Free domain servers?
None of which prohibit use of this webhoster based solely on the dearth
of requirements established by the OP. I didn't go guessing what other
needs the OP might have now that weren't delineated here or what the OP
might need later.
What I offered matched what the OP said they wanted. However, the OP
stated contrary requirements. First he says he wants to park his domain
and then he claims there will be little traffic to his site. You don't
get traffic to a parked domain.
"Domain parking is the registration of an Internet domain name without
using it for services such as e-mail or a website".
Just because you register a domain doesn't mean you actually have to use
it. You can just park it until you later decide to use it somewhere.
This is very similar to squatting where you buy a domain, don't employ a
web site to use that domain, but are waiting to use it later (to sell it
to someone who wants it later).
Which was 6 hours AFTER my post. I got here before you did.
Yep, and why I gave a link showing what the free account doesn't have
that the paid ones do. I also use Avast Free, Paragon Backup & Recovery
2010, FileLocator Lite, and Albasani (and previously Eternal-September)
for Usenet all the while knowing that there are some features missing
from the paid version. I've paid for Office 2000/2002/2003 but that
didn't mean I wanted or needed to use every feature contained in that
software. It had way more than I needed.
Sometimes free stuff has less than I want but often (after doing some
research) I can find free stuff that does enough to satisfy my wants and
sometimes even my needs (since my wants could change and enlarge over
time). If the free stuff does all of what you need then why pay for
more stuff that you won't use? Would you feel smug in getting the
lowest airfare on the same flight and seating area as someone who paid
more, or would you be disappointed that you paid less than someone that
got the same stuff as you? I don't know and haven't met anyone that is
proud that they paid more for the same stuff for which you paid less.
Re: Free domain servers?
You can do that by forwarding your domain to your personal page using
a domain name manager. ZoneEdit <http://www.zoneedit.com/ is free and
provides both web and email forwarding. Web forwarding has a
disadvantage in that you have to choose between revealing the real URL
at your ISP or showing the same forwarded URL on every page of your
