Freedom Registry is a registry operator for TLDs. What sets us apart from other registry operators is that we believe domain names should be free. Just like email services are provided for free these days (think Gmail and Hotmail), we believe the best way to attract registrants to your TLD is to give away your domain names for free.
At Freedom Registry we know that giving out free domain names makes good business sense. Our subsidiary, Dot TK, has been the registry for the Tokelau country-code TLD since 2001. Dot TK is the only TLD registry that gives away free domain names. As a result, Tokelau (.tk) is now the largest country code top level domain registry in the world and has more active domain names registrations than Russia and China combined. And we're adding one million new registrations every month!
The world of domain name registrations is about to undergo huge changes. Over the next few years the number of TLDs available will dramatically increase as ICANN opens up the root zone for new gTLDs. The supply of domain names will be almost endless. If TLDs offer registration for free, the demand will be huge.
More than 750 million domains in 2017
In a country like the Netherlands there is a registered domain name for every three internet users. If we assume that in the near future the same ratio (1:3) will apply globally, we can expect to see the number of registered domain names jump from 200 million today to 750 million in 2017.
At Freedom Registry we believe that giving away free domain names is a fantastic opportunity for all TLDs. Of course, as a TLD you retain full control over your registry - Freedom Registry acts as your Registry Operator for both TLD Monetization and Global DNS Services.
Our experience in managing the growth of the Tokelau TLD has proved to us that nothing boosts TLD registration growth like giving away domain names for free. As a registry operator we can handle and nurture rapid growth - we've done it before - and we already have the tools and the skills in place to support all back-end registry operator processes and to convert registrations into revenue.
We can provide all the standard global DNS services a TLD needs. We also offer a full range of registry services. If you are applying for a new gTLD, whether as a city/regional TLD (think .newyork or .scotland) or if it's a brand TLD (.yourbrand), talk to us about how giving away free domain names can attract registrants, grow your community, promote your brand and make you money. And we'll help you make it happen.
