Free, Paid and Special Domains
Not all domain names can be registered for free. A limited number of domains are considered "Special" and can only be purchased. Their price varies.
For example, all 1, 2 and 3 character domains, as well as common dictionary keywords, are considered Special.
All other domains (those that are not Special) can be either purchased (Paid domain) or registered for free (Free domain). Compare and choose between the two options using the table below:
