Newest Review: ... It is still FREE and has added features. I am still looking into the features but the one that catches my eye is the 'justmail' facility. It seems that for only £2.50 a month you do not have to dialup to them to collect your mail or keep your domain name active. It is really nice for the people like me who enjoy travelling as I can now access my mail abroad which I felt was limited with the old service. They have reduced the cost of their 'anytime' and 'broadband' services too. I am looking forward to seeing what the new products are that they are planning on launching in the near future - I will keep you updated... more

Hello All, Just thought I would let you know that I received an email last night from the team at freenetname. They have redesigned the site (looks really slick) and have opened up domain signups again. It is still FREE and has added features.

When every other company was plugging thier "free" internet service where you only paid for the phone calls, freenetname went on better. They charge no monthly fee, local dial in costs and then threw in a domain name! Ease To Install: I didn't have any problems intalling/setting up the connection. Mind you, it has to be said that I work with computers all day, so I would hope that I don't have any problems with something like setting up an internet connection. But it all looked pretty simple to me. Knowing what you connect to: I always like to know all the individual settings, what the mail servers name is, any proxy ... Read the complete review

Freenetname offer a free domain name and hosting service if you use there ISP. This is handy if you want a co.uk website for free but there are few problems. First of all you have keep using their ISP in order for them to keep your website up and running. Connection speeds are fast but the hosting service can be very very slow especially if you have FLASH site hosted on it. On the bright side it is free, and if you just want a simple call charge ISP and want to create a basic website with you own domain name this is the cheapest and easiest way to achieve it. Conclusion – Great if you a first time web designer but serious web designers should stay ... Read the complete review

"Quite a while ago I joined freenetname, like many friends who were also considering joining. The only similar offer was from namezero.com who give free .com addresses but they put a banner on them. However, after joining i realised that it wasnt as good as id first thought. The downtime of my site was amazingly high. After telling 15 people about the site on the after it had been up for a week ( or so i'd thought) i got complaints from twelve saying that they couldnt access the site. It hasnt got any better I think that says it all." This is what I said first time round. Well, what I was trying to sasy was that ... Read the complete review

Thousands (or is it millions?) of people within the UK are now regularly logged on to the Internet and starting to capitalise on its immense potential. In order to get online, everybody will have had to open an account with an Internet Service Provider (ISP), which provides a dial up number and will usually also provide e-mail addresses and (increasingly) some space on their servers allowing the user to set up a website, if that is their heart’s desire. I first got on line a couple of years ago, and started off with British Telecom’s Talk21 service which was okay, but unexciting and I rapidly became quite bored with it. After a while I also started ... Read the complete review
