    It's real but you do not own the domain they do. They also put a dirty great big nasty banner accross the page which makes your site suck. Shed out $12 and get ya own.

    You should not use namezero for any site that you intend to use for a business. I would look around at some of the discount registrars if price is an issue for you.

    Check out http://www.psychohamster.com for an example of that evil banner. And no this isn't spam, I made that domain with namezero specifically as an example of why not to use them. Yes.. the names a bit out there too, I didn't want to waste something someone might find a use for anytime soon with namezero.

    There is some downside to your idea...
    1- the domain is still their, not yours.
    2- if they catch you, they will remove you
    3- if they disapear, your domain sink with them

    Why not pay a small fee and have it really?
