Default Do free domain names lower conversion rate?

I'm constantly having new ideas or recieving new products to sell and making sites around them. Recently I've kinda got bored of paying for new addresses, so I've just been putting them on co.nr and such. Will this lower my conversion rates?

By not getting a good domain with a good extension, I think you lose credibility. I do not see any trust in a .co.nr sub domain.

I could possibly see blackhat operations using super cheap domains and things like co.nr.

If you are too cheap to buy domains, perhaps you should consider getting one decent domain and then making your own subdomains from that.

So I do think that you are losing potential sales by going the route that you are currently.

These are just my thoughts.

I own several dot coms, just don't want to pay for every site idea I have.

Never heard about that!

The conversion rate is more about your site's quality, not the domain name!

The problem of free domain name is that u may not get the domain have your KW in it!

Right. But then if you can not get the domain have your KW in it, it will affect your target traffic and thus conversion rate. Isn't it right?
