I just wanted to warn you guys on Freenom.com!
They seem to be nice at the first place, but if you just get a few users visiting your site they will soon cancel your domain due to "ToS violation" or an "unused domain/website".
Today they canceled mine and sent me an email stating that it was cancelled due to the reasons above and I could just get it again if I still want it.
Looking on their website it says that my domain is now a PAID one and they want an unrealistic ammout of money for the .ML domain...
Furthermore when connecting to the website now it just opens up a website saying that the domain is parking and some other bullshit.
When looking closer to the website structure you can see scripted content being loaded from "b.rmgserving.com". Opening that website just says "Access denied." and trying to connect to the main site "rmgserving.com" shows the totally ridiculous message "COMPANY DOES NOT EXISTS".
Moreover there are many security warnings or that domain (especially the subdomain) when looking at ...
Well, I asked them to refund my domain as I had a MX record connected to it and its a massive privacy "problem" and illegal, especially as the company Freenom is located in the Netherlands (EU).
Well, coming to an end: do never use Freenom for important projects and never, never, neeever ever for important mails!
I will update this thread if I got a reply of Freenom but I can already say you that the most important thing I'll do is canceling or moving all projects, mails/accounts etc from Freenom as they really disappointed me and I will never can trust them again.
I hope this can kind of help you.
But I'm sure this message wont really change anything on the way Freenom acts or how many domains are being registered at Freenom.
Anyway I just wanted to say this to anyone as I dont want to be quiet and just live with that. I think it's really incredibly outrageous.
Kind of "disclaimer": These are just my expiriences. I may only had bad luck but these words above are just my opinion.
Did you ever had such experiences with Freenom?
Or do you know another website offering free domains? (Except FDC, I need a Whois-protection for this domain as I dont want to say my real name/address on the internet in connection with my pseudonym)
Btw. if you want the domain name where I'm writing about just contact me. I just dont want to post it in public.
(mit freundlichen Grüßen,)
