Reader Comments on When A Free Domain Name Costs Too Much

From: Shonna Keogan (register.com)

One major point that wasn't addressed in this article is
that customers can upgrade to a register.com name at any
time.  Once they do that, they can get full functionality,
registration rights and no advertising on their site.
Namedemo essentially allows people to try out a domain name
at no risk.

Also, register.com is not in the business of reselling
domain names at a profit.  We register domain names for $35
a year and would have no intention of charging any more for
a Namedemo upgrade, no matter how valuable the name became
to the user.

There's another of these sites at www.namezero.com
Same sort of thing.. they own the domain, and put a banner down the bottom
of your page...

I tried getting a domain thru it but it told me I couldn't have the domain
name I wanted, even though I checked with whois to see if it was
registered first (it wasn't).. so, theoretically they could also use the
info you enter to register these domains to themselves before you do, so
you can't get them anyway =/
