    Nothing, just a big sham.

    Over dot.free ? because i already tried, but getting after sending verification e-mail an 502 badgateaway error... and tried over 101domain.com and I'm not sure if it will be pre-registered there, because i have found a niche, that would work with .free extremely good, as long as i can seo it right ^^

    .free domains will be released this year, but you can already pre-register domains, so that you have already yourwebsite.free registered, .free will be free, and will be a similar TLD domain like .club, .city etc...

    As far as I can tell, they haven't even got the official "ok" to launch those things yet... So the whole pre-registration is really just data fishing! You give them your name and email, receiving a free pre-reg for something that probably will never appear in return?!? Righty ho!

    Impossible to say now, but if they even make it live someday, my guess would be yes.

    I don't think .com's are going away anytime soon, if ever, I think all these .words are nothing more than novelties marketed by domain companies trying to get everything to go on a "land grab" binge and "secure your piece" early......yeah right...
