Is there such thing or website where you can get free domains? I have searched and you have to pay about 25 bucks a year for your own domain. Know of a site with one for free?
I'm not aware of anyone who offers a free domain name but you can get them for roughly $10 or so at Go Daddy. You can, with a domain name you purchase anywhere, get your domain name hosted for free, however. I wrote about it here: http://hubpages.com/hub/your-first-webs … -beginners
The cost of a domain is a function of:
1. The service that registers it for you,
2. and the TLD that you want to use.
The older TLDs such as .com, net, .org, .edu are about $12 per year. Other TLDs may be much more; shop around for specific costs.
Domain name registration services all do the same thing; they all submit your registered name to the same databases. Some will provide additional bells and whistles like anonymity or domain parking.
BEWARE of companies offering free domain names.
These are generally offered by web hosting companies as an incentive to host with them.
the hosting company normally registers the domain in their own name, and you have no control over it.
If you ever want to move to a different web host be prepared for lots of problems and expenses.
Control over your domain name is the most important internet assett you have. Don't give it away for the sake of saving a few dollars a year.
Register it yourself at www.name.com for around $10 per year.
Don't use GoDaddy. see www.nodaddy.com for some very good reasons.

someone has to register your domain name. you unfortunately cannot do this yourself(from what I understand)
so -- you must use a service provider who can do this for you - for a fee
there are TONS of service providers and the majority charge roughly $10 --- PER YEAR. You need to determine how long you want to own the site name - it makes more sense to buy a couple of years in advance
otherwise, if you forget to renew the name, it automatically goes up for grabs and technically someone could buy it and lock you out (it is rare but can happen)
You can get co.cc, co.nr, co.tk domains for free. Check out: http://tutor.99k.org/Free-Domain-Setup.html
