View Full Version : Anyone use namezero.com?

Yep. We set up a picture web page for my baby daughter. It works very well. The web hosting is done through the 10MB I get free from my ISP. The only gripe is when you put the mouse on the taskbar over the web page it actually shows the link for my members.home.com link and not the domain name set up by namezero. Other than that it works great.

Yea I've a few domains reg'd thru it. Sometimes it goes down, but for the most part its ok. Much easier to use a 19.95 registrar and go that route.

I think this is the chepaest and the best way to get your own domain name and sit on it.

That vague post I had up was a result of having to reset my cookie--when I went back to post I forgot it was only a reply and not a new post. Thus I wasn't as specific as I USUALLY AM.
So, anyone actually use them? (I am referring to namezero.com)

I do, and for a site you want heavy traffic on, it's not really feasible because of the big ass bar on the bottom. If you want to see an example, I have a site I haven't updated in a couple of months at www.pennypinch.com. (http://www.pennypinch.com.) You can see what it looks like.

Your site bit the dust. I couldn't access it at all. First, I got a "Content - 0" at the top right hand corner, followed by "this page cannot be displayed" twice. Is this a namezero problem?

Hold on, those bastards, if my sh!t is gone, someone's a-gonna pay!!!

Yup, a problem with Namezero, because my site is still up at the host's server. I dunno, but I got this a lot. I guess that answers yer question, folks. Namezero=zero

Oop, hold on, Namezero.com is down too...perhaps the whole thing is tripping. Try mine or the home site in a bit and mebbe it'll be back up.

I use NameZero - the hook was actually that they provided a free vanity POP account with the domain (I don't really give a crap about the web page part, my web page stinks ;p) but I like having a customized e-mail and the ability to make multiple forwarding accounts. Unfortunately, their e-mail's a bit on the sketchy side - sometimes it comes quickly, sometimes it comes slowly, and sometimes it never comes and whoops, too bad ;p After the first horrendous week of service, I was about ready to give up on them, but things have improved pretty much. One of the downsides to their web program is that if you make a page at the address, let's say, www.test.com, (http://www.test.com,) and then link to another page which you make an alias for, let's say test.test.com, if you make the hyperlink on the original page point to http://test.test.com, you'll get two ad bars, which sucks majorly.

yuk indeed, Mr. Williams. There has to be a workaround for that stupid bar, but then again, its part of the agreement. I wonder, I understood that the site owner also owns the domain name. I wonder what it takes to buy the domain off of them, or...what? If I own the domain name, do I have to buy it off of namezero? Anyone thought about that yet?
