.tk General FAQ
.TK is the internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Tokelau, a territory of New Zealand located in the South Pacific. Tokelau provides any individuals .TK domain names free of charge. The way that it works is anyone can request a .TK domain free of charge. If the domain is still available, the applicant doesn't actually become its owner. Rather, he is granted a ‘right of use' by Dot TK and can use the domain to point to an active website, where Dot TK will add its own advertising. Sites not visited at least 25 times in consecutive 90 day periods are automatically cancelled to avoid the domains being unavailable to more active websites. Dot-TK recently provided .TK websites the option to join a network called TiKinet. The network is expected to increase traffic to the websites, many of which are personal sites and blogs operated by individuals who otherwise would have no way to advertise their sites.
As a paid domain name registrant, you receive benefits of holding the legal ownership of the domain, Dot TK DNS Service, and no minimum requirement of 25 cpr144449003101 hits per 90 days. You are also able to register the domain for longer periods (2-9 years) and be identified on the WHOIS record of the domain.
A free .TK domain, will automatically expire when it does not receive the required minimum of 25 unique visitors during the previous 90 day period. In additional, you will be limited to redirection service only and have no legal ownership of the domain.
