Free Domain Again..

Free Domain again ! Yes Yes! Last time this was .nu domain. But the problem was, you can only redirect it to another site. This time here comes the domain .ml which stands for Mali. They are giving away free domain names which can be redirected to another web or you can use your own DNS. That means its really a full service.

Why is it good to choose a domain name with a .ml extension?

A .ml extension could be one of the best choice for local and international companies wanting to represent their business in Mali. In Mali the common language is French. French is the 5th most used website language in the world. A website with a .ml extension helps you reach your audience easier and also give a professional look to your company. When you targeting this local market with a local domain name, you demonstrate proof of your commitment to the local customers. In this way you can maximize your website’s revenues. Along with this, it is much easier to register a short or a common word in a ccTLD (country code top-level domain) than with other more popular domain names like .com or .net. Additionally, country code top-level domain gives you the opportunity to find domain hacks much easier.

What kind of characters can be used in a domain name and how long can it be?

When choosing a web name you should remember these limitations:

A .ml domain can have alphabets, numbers and hyphen (-) or any of these combinations.

A name may begin with a letter or a number and end with a letter or a number.

The domain name can neither begin nor end with hyphens. A .ml domain can not contain hyphens in the third and fourth positions (e.g. www.ab- -cd.ml).

Spaces and special characters and stressed vowels (such as à, é, ò, í) are never permitted.

The minimum length of a web name under the top level domain .ml is 3 characters, the maximum length is 12 characters.

You cannot register your domain if you don’t follow the above limitations.
