WHAT ARE .FREE DOMAINS?
Who is behind .FREE?
The initiative for the top-level domain .free is supported by a variety of companies and individuals and is the first initiative for domains which will be 100% free. The .free top-level domain will give people from all over the world the chance to own their free second-level domain and offers companies the chance to market their products with the .free domain extension. The .free community is managed by the dotFree Group s.r.o. – a Czech start-up company, but also of supporters spread around the world and of people who support the idea of freedom.
Why are .FREE domains introduced?
The number of Internet users in being increased every day. In the world of the improved technology, it is almost impossible to find needed information without the usage of internet. Each day more and more web sites are registered online, and it is almost impossible for one to register his/her website under a desirable name, since all the original names are already taken. That is why new domains are created. However, in order for You to register Your website, You need to pay a certain amount of money. That is not going to be the case with .FREE.
Are .FREE domains really free?
.FREE is going to be a generic Top Level Domain (gTLD), which is going to be available for free, as the name itself says. Individuals, companies, organizations, groups, etc. are going to be able to register their .FREE website under a desirable name. .FREE is a very interesting domain name, and people who are visiting Your website will be able to see that You are offering a product/service for free. Example Domains: www.musicfor.free, www.movies4.free, www.software.free, www.yourname.free, www.brand.free. (which, of course, does not have to be the case).

.FREE launch procedure
To make sure that every person and every company has a fair chance to register its own .FREE domain, the launch timetable of the .FREE domain registrations is organized in 4 different steps. The launch procedure is based on industry standards in order to protect the users of the .FREE gTLD. The .FREE launch timetable has four stages:
* Pre-Registration Period - This period will be open for anyone in the world and is expected to start on the 1st of November 2010. Interested individuals and companies can pre-register at no costs their desired .FREE domain names. Premuim domains and trademarks are not available during the pre-registration period and there is no guarantee that pre-registered domains will be assigned to the applicant at the beginning of the General Availability.
* Sunrise Period - This period is for brand owners who want their domain names to be the same as their trademark name. These domain names will be avaliable for those brand owners during the sunrise period. This allows companies to protect their registered trademarks. Same domain name applications will be arranged in an auction process.
* Landrush Period - The .FREE Landrush period starts at the end of the Sunrise period and will be open to interested individuals who plan to use the .FREE domain names for business purposes. Same domain name applications will be arranged in an auction process.
* General Availability - Just after the Sunrise period and Landrush period have ended .FREE domains will be available world wide through ICANN accredited registrars, our own resellers and on this website. Except for premium domains, .FREE will be available for free to the public on the first come, first choice principle.
