Sounds wierd to me, but what im thinking is that you have to "purchase" your domain with your credit card, and if you happen to do it during one of their 10 minute periods then you get it free. Thats what i got out of it, maybe thats not what it is... but it sounds fishy to me.

Unhappy Register Free Domain Names again...

I just got this letter:

Dear valued RegisterFREE customer:

We thank you for your interest. We though that you would like
to be the first to know.

RegisterFREE, in our attempt to make all domain name
registrations free, intends to offer FREE DOMAIN REGISTRATION
for 5 to 20 minutes AT LEAST ONCE every day for 30 days,
starting today. Because you asked to be notified of our
next promotion, we are notifying you before the general public.
We will offer two ten minute FREE periods between 6 p.m.
(US eastern daylight time) Saturday, April 29, 2000 and
6 p.m. Sunday, April 30, 2000.

RegisterFREE was the first to offer FREE domain registrations
on the Internet. During our first FREE promotion hundreds of
thousands showed up at our site and we gave away more than 5000
domains. To give everyone an opportunity this time we're doing
it differently. We are not giving the exact time of the free
promotion, but instead we're promising that we'll give away
domains at random intervals EVERYDAY. If you go www.registerfree.com, you can try your luck or register at
our everyday low price of $19.95.

We hope you and your friends become one of the lucky ones
that are in the right place at the right time.

We are open to all ideas on how we can make domain names
100% FREE. If you have any thought just let us know.

Thanks for your patronage.

I don't really understand it, I think you have to use your credit card, and if you register within the 10 min. free period, then it's free or something...

Anybody else like to try to interpret this?

That was the OLD url for the FIRST promotion, where if you sent them an email telling them that you weren't able to register during that period because of their overloaded servers, they'll give you a free domain.

Nahhh, I'll bet it's none of those things. I'll bet they're gonna slap CPM banners on their site, and just make money 'till the cows come home, as people visit them all day, trying to nail a freebie.
