Ok I got my domain, and it was FREE!!!
05-05-2000, 10:05 PM
Yes, sweet! I got L33THardware.com before any of you guys.
05-05-2000, 10:41 PM
Damnit! It took me forever to think of that domain and u got it? well, gotta go think of another one...
05-05-2000, 10:44 PM
i tried goin to the website i registered but it isn't there yet. the email i got does say it will be available within 24 hours...so should i not be surprised that i can't follow the directions on the email i received?

I have to agree with bondo here though... this isnt the place to post referral urls, spam, etc.. resented is obviously making money off this whereas that isnt allowed on this board.
Of course I wouldn't have been as pissed at bondo, nonetheless it is still wrong for him to have posted his *own* referral id instead of just the company name.
05-06-2000, 12:38 AM
heh ok ok, I apologize for my harshness, I might have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif anyways, nice to be able to post something and not get banned, like I always end up doing on anandtech heheh

you guys really can't be that freakin dumb, resented posted his own URL thats using namezero.com , and you halfwits are clicking on the banner at the bottom of his home page. farking idiots.
Now now be sort of nice bondo.
05-06-2000, 07:49 AM
take it easy bondo.....atleast he isn't some nazi clueless bastard.
05-06-2000, 08:38 AM
Thanks for the info Resented. We'll see if it really works.
Bondo, take a laxative before you make a diamond.
05-06-2000, 09:55 AM
C'mon guys... let's calm down. Does it really matter what url he posted if the offer is valid? I appreciate all the good deals. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
05-06-2000, 01:58 PM
anyone have any idea how we could get around having that annoying little bar at the bottom of the screen?
05-06-2000, 02:13 PM
Just go directly to www.namezero.com (http://www.namezero.com) instead of the page link above and sign up from there.
But you still do need a web host if you're going to link your free domain to an actual page. These web hosts below don't have popups, ads or banner requirements, but not all may be suitable to be used for commercial purposes. Then, there's always the cheap $9/mo web hosts if none of these suit your purposes.

my free domain was jsut activated. How do change the website that comes up to my own site?
I signed up. How long does it take to get your domain name and how will i make the site?
05-07-2000, 04:49 PM
For a great hosting site check out www.nomonthlyfees.com (http://www.nomonthlyfees.com) 200 megs web hosting for only 200 bucks! Pay 200 bucks once and it'll be hosted forever. I have been using it for over 6 month now. My site is an example of it. Apex might want to sign up for their referal link. you make 100 dollars per referal
Check out www.MadCool.com (http://www.MadCool.com)
05-07-2000, 05:29 PM
Can you sign up for more than one domain using only 1 e-mail ?. I already did and haven't receive a confirmation for the second one. I hope the first one don't get blocked. How do this guys pay for probably million of domains ????,How long is this going to work. Everybody is going to get wild and try to get all posible domains !!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, this is chaos !!!!!!!!!! Any way I hope I get www.lomgestdomainicouldthinkonrightnow.com (http://www.lomgestdomainicouldthinkonrightnow.com)
05-07-2000, 07:32 PM
Ok, from what i know i should only get one domain, but I have no idea of a good domain name, my company name is NetLine but the domain is already taken I tryed net-line without luck, netlinez work but I don't like it to much.
Any Ideas of a good domain name with that kind of words. I do ISP, voice over IP, webdesing run a cybercafe and need a free domain !!.
05-07-2000, 07:57 PM
Has anyone really dug through the fine print? It looks as though they NameZero might actually own the domain you register, and merely give you use of it through their redirection. What happens if you want to move your domain away from their services?
Also, if you didn't already notice, they attach Email advertisements to any mail directed through their site (kinda lame if this is for a business).
I really don't see this as a great deal - to own a domain outright its only $35/yr, and you can have it redirected for free from www.mydomain.com, (http://www.mydomain.com,) without the advertisements.
esteban: www.net-line.cc (http://www.net-line.cc) is still available (but probably not for long).
BTW you can register domains for $17 a year at www.domainmonger.com (http://www.domainmonger.com) . And unlike namezero, you own it.
I did register one with namezero, but I can't get their dumb 'start page' to go away and forward to another URL. Anyone figured this out yet?
05-07-2000, 10:33 PM
I signed up to this on Saturday. My domain was up today. To change your redirection, you have to go to your domain, and on the lower frame, you click on 'Control Panel'.
Log on and on the "Channels" area, click 'change'. The default is the NameZero page. Change the info to the one on the URL you want to forward to. Thats it! Yes, they own the domain unless you want to pay the $15 fee to transfer it into your name.
05-07-2000, 10:38 PM
Yeah... this is not all that great of a deal.
Check out www.MadCool.com (http://www.MadCool.com)
Thanks for the info. It's not that bad of a deal, just as long as you can get the name back if you want it. I've always wanted to own www.thetourguide.net (http://www.thetourguide.net) (my friends nicknamed me the tour guide). Now I can have it for free.
*NameZero says they register your name for 1 year. At the end of the year they give you the option to have them renew it for free for another year, or you can have it yourself for free. It's only if you want to terminate BEFORE the year that they slap you with the $15 charge.
05-08-2000, 01:18 AM
This seems like a pretty good deal to me. . . You can grab domain names for free, and if you ever feel like making a site out of it, you pay the 15 bucks to transfer. . . But at least no one can take the domain name away from you. . . Unless I'm missing something, I say its a pretty sweet riskless deal. . .
05-08-2000, 11:08 AM
Its like parking a domain for free. Can't beat that deal... All you need is a free webhost (geocities,angelfire,etc.) and make the domain point to it. Of course you'll have a ton of ads all over the page... LOL
05-08-2000, 11:29 AM
I register all my domains through gandi.net. You can't beat 12euros/year (under $11 as of this morning). Plus free email and url redirection. (one email & a single redirect for www.yourdomain.com) (http://www.yourdomain.com))
I'd consider this service for domains I didn't necessarily want to use, but didn't want anyone else to, either. (mydomain.org, .net .etc)
05-08-2000, 02:26 PM
Ok I got that link from Another BBS, and I just got back from my vacation. Either way you can still go throught that website to get your own domain name. Basically I offered up nearly 25 posts that morning, all from other BBS's to help out the GotApex community. That is not my link. That is not my domain. Anyone who wants to flame someone for putting up a link for some free **** can go get laid by a donkey. Seriously, I'm thinking of stopping posts on GotApex cause this is the 3rd FLAME I've recieved. If you really want me to stop posting I will, it's not like I'm trying to win some e-Popularity contest so any of you that have beef should just keep your mouth shut. That domain doesn't even give out referral stuff, offer any type of compensation, or anything and to top it off it's not even mine. Just go to http://www.namezero.com stop your bitchin and whining. I own my own Web Hosting business, and this hurts business for me, yet I still posted it.
Maybe I should start a listserv and get people pre-screened to get my deals. Since I have been here over the past month I have posted well over 50 deals. If you can't even be happy for that .... don't even start.
a pissed off resented
05-08-2000, 02:28 PM
Now I read down to the apologies, and am not pissed as I was. Thanks to all who just read my beef, and I apologize to the GotApex community.
a 'lil resented
05-08-2000, 02:41 PM
I still love ya, resented. But you do sound as hormonal as me today. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif
What was that about a donkey? ROFL
05-08-2000, 02:44 PM
hehe I have to try to make it a like half-non-deleted scenario. Oh well, heh It's just hot here and when I come home the A/C is out. :/
05-08-2000, 03:24 PM
This is great...Now I'm going to spend the rest of the day trying to think of domains to get.
05-11-2000, 08:16 AM
what is the code to kill the huge banner that appears on Namezero.com webpages?
