Question Registrar with free web and email forwarding?

I was wondering if anyone knew of a domain name registrar which offered free or very low cost email and web forwarding for domain names (.com).

Thank you in advance for you advice.

Register.com immediately springs to mind, though their registration fees are a little pricey.

Personally, though, if I were going to park a domain and/or use it simply for email/web forwarding, I'd stick with a value-oriented registrar such as 000domains or PowerPipe and use MyDomain.com's free DNS services to setup the redirects. That way, you save $10-$20 a year on each domain.

Thank you, that is very useful advice. I am going to try MyDomain.com's free service, though I've become very cynical of free services on the net.

Too many companies lure people with promises of free stuff and then start charging

Thank you once again.

Doteasy.com

You get unlimited emails and email forwarding, and may I suggest the email "center" is pretty nice to use

Of course, the hosting package may not be what you want...

10 page website.
50 personalized email addresses.
Web/Url forwarding.

With DotEasy you get unlimited number of Email acounts and redirection/auto responders.
Email acounts have 10M size and POP as well as web access.

I was right, sadly. Now they are plastering Gator pop-unders all over the sites they redirect.

Never trust anyone on the internet.
