I decided I don’t want Domain Pigeon to claim it has free domain names when it actually doesn’t. Using the word free to attract traffic to the site is dishonest, no matter how I tried to rationalize it.
I imagine a conversation with a new visitor:
“Free domain names? Really?”
“Well, not really, you still have to pay the registration fee.”
“So its not actually free…”
“No one owns it, so, in that sense it’s free.”
“That’s not what free means”
“Yeah but if got you to come to the site didn’t it?”
“Go screw yourself”
With that in mind, domains are now available. They’re not free. They never were.
Screw the numbers. It’s not worth it.
