    You can't get it FREE. Few companies offer free with hosting packages.
    At netfirms you can get a .com, .net, .org etc at USD3.99 using promo DOLLARDOMAIN while checking out :)

    Try domains.indiatimes.com - they recently launched and are aggressively promoting themselves. They are significantly cheaper than godaddy.com - very useful when you want to book multiple domains.

    If you'll read all the replies here you'll see that several free and claimed-free are mentioned. Some are free. Some are free only in not requiring money, but instead demand your time for some tasks. For example, dot.tk offers .tk free to non-spammers as long as there are at least 25 users each 90 days (no direct effort on your part, as you'll be working to attract people to your site anyway) - and if you lose one domain, create another until you are attracting enough traffic (they make money from ads on old domains and from selling domains). A free-as-in-no-money is .co.cc, which requires that you participate in surveys or other tasks.

    Only free as in payment with work rather than money. At least one survey is required. No information provided on other ways to earn needed "points".

    The OrgFree FAQ says "Domain is not free!". OrgFree offers free subdomains, but not top-level domains. Oddly, OrgFree forbids DNS "A" records but hints that DNS is supported; probably only CNAME is allowed but they're not documenting their service as well as they should.

    New .com domain for $ 4 is the cheapest I ever found, but you need to sign up for a (free) reseller account. :)

    Depends on your definition of free. For example, dot.tk is free as long as your site is getting 25 visitors in 90 days. If you're trying to attract visitors to your site, then you don't have to do any extra effort to keep your free .tk domain. If you're not trying to attract visitors to the domain, such as if it is a site for backing up info for one server, then you'd have to spend effort to get enough visitors, and thus it would not be free (even if you pay them no money, you're expending effort which you could devote elsewhere). If you read the dot.tk documents, you find that they're raising money from selling domains and from ads on failed domains. As long as your site is attracting visitors and that's what you're trying to do, it is free to you. If your visitors drop too low, then your efforts at promotion end up benefiting dot.tk. So if you have mild success with the public, it is free as long as success lasts.

    The DNS business is also interesting because DNS is designed so if a site becomes successful enough to irritate the DNS server, the DNS timeouts can be increased so caching servers all over the Internet will take up the extra load. So even if a successful site starts to stress their infrastructure, they can shed the load to everyone else. Oddly, if they do that then everyone becomes more efficient.

    I also know of mediadots.com, which is also free, although only requiring one visitor every three months. (I also see mediadots apparently supports several top-level domains but a cookie can apparently lock your web browser into only seeing a single domain family -- try clearing your mediadots cookies.) But mediadots.com is a forwarding-only service, while dot.tk offers several kinds of DNS service.
