    I have registered 3 domains in .TK free domain registrar one year ago. Then I have work hard to get top of google. after 8 months of my hard work those 3 sites pop in 1st page of google. Then suddenly without even a email, they have deleted my 3 domains. I have ask them why this deleted and no answer received. Then I have search "dot tk scam " in google and got hundreds of stories same as me. The I realize dot tk doing this massively.
    If you face to same situation like me please share you story here. Because other web master be careful when they use .tk

    This is NOT a Scam. Terms of conditions say that they can take away your domain at any time for any reason without notice. You are basically only "borrowing" their domains. They have paid .TK versions which they can't take away from you. Your fault for not reading TOS, don't blame others. Dude, just spend a few bucks on a paid domain name. :rolleyes:

    It states in VERY clearly right here:

    8.2. Modifications to FREE DOMAIN.
    By accepting this Agreement, you hereby acknowledge and agree that we, in our sole discretion, may modify or
    discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the service at any part thereof, at any time with or without prior notice,
    including, without limitation, modification or discontinuance of advertising, content and applications appearing as
    part of FREE DOMAIN. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification,
    suspension or discontinuance of FREE DOMAIN or any part thereof.

    What an idiotic post. How can it be a scam when everything is clearly stated in the terms of service? Sure, a lot of people don't read read terms and conditions, but I wouldn't run around screaming SCAM, SCAM when my domain gets taken away. You know why? It is because they have THE RIGHT to terminate the domain under ANY condition- and it would be completely my fault for not reading the contract. It's all there in the TOS- The thing you agreed to when you signed up. If this was a legitimate scam, someone would of sued them by now and their service would of been ceased.

    If you have the talent to bring your content to the first page of google, is $7.99 for a .COM domain name really that big a deal?

    Also like indiajobvacancy's comment. There's no way this should happen to someone twice.

    Dot.tk is a cheating company

    What
    some of yourll say we get it for free these are the person who have no knowladge about that
    because there is a lot of hard works traffic put on that domain your files put the name of that eg mycat.tk
    so you suffer lose

    i am using a domain dot.tk for free which they dont want to suffer loss and want us to buy
    they will never allow yours site to grown on free
    they have their crazy tos

    So in my point dot.tk is a scam cheating company and not to be trusted they deleted my domain without notice
    dot.tk should be trown in the garbage only we can do this

    i have lots of knowladge on this
    I advice you to buy a domain if it is a testing site than you can dot.tk otherwise no they will just delete your domain

    Even if it is in their TOS, they are scamming people by doing so. They may be legally correct, but morally it is so wrong and unfair. If the only reason they have got to snatch your domain is that you have worked sufficiently hard on it already, then they should add this to their TOS, that every free domain which becomes popular will be seized. At least people will be aware before registering. It is a conspiracy. They just wait for a domain to get popular and seize it without notice. They should at least reply to email.


    They can even make a better policy that if you get more than a certain amount of hits, you have to buy that domain. No, but they are just snatching it away. Because they know that if you ask the user to buy by then, he will buy it, and they will lose the opportunity of snatching it and take unfair advantage.

    I found few post saying the same story.
    .tk is a scam.
    I got a free domain one year ago and perform well. That site do not violate their TOS. But suddenly with out any notice they have take it back and now it is as park domain.
    You know, they are making lots of money on park domains. We spend money to promote those sites and when we do well they take it back.
    What ever they say the real thing is that. They are soo ****ers
    So do not go to .tk domains buy paid one that is good for all.

    I will give you another example
    I got domain relating to adult keyword and I redirected to porn site. It is over 2 years but they did not even look at that. I have made complain via my friend regarding this. but they did not respond to that. that is another clue that what they are doing. site is still active. But If I create a site itself probably they will take it back after getting good traffic.

    Please share this story as much as possible since they are not doing the correct thing for web masters.

    If you need a domain which do not delete by the registrar, just pay for the domain and renew on time.
    Simply, do not go for free domains.

    Again, it's business! They only give you what's only suit with your budget and if free then don't expect for special extension without paying :)

    If you want to achieve high rank, why you use dot tk ?
    People not trust dot tk domain as a business or buying something..
    You paid for dot com or dot net domain, but with high rank, your money for buying that domain will paid back..

    .tk is good and I don't see any problem with what they are offering.They are offering free domains with the option to either terminate them later or renew that to a paid version and keep that forever.
    If you are serious about your business or the site, you should go for a paid domain which is less that $10 an year either a gtlds or upgrading your free .tk to a paid .tk

    There are coupon codes for godaddy all the time, and half of the time you can buy a .com domain from them for $0.99, so being cheap and going for a .tk which you don't have any control over, and working SEO on it for months is just stupid. It's not my intention to offend you but i can't think of any other reason why you'd do what you did.
