    Hi peeps,

    I need to set up a very simple one page site very quickly, not looking for anything special, basically I want to use a free host but I'm assuming they will force me to use a domain name that looks like shit, so I was wondering if it is possible to get a free .tk domain and set it up on a free host? I no nothing when it comes down to this kind of shit. Thank you for any replies/ideas...

    Yes you can,
    just point the .tk domain to your host's nameservers.

    Yes you can. If it's for testing purpose, you're good to go. Else, I wouldn't recommend using a free host and domain. Once you start getting sufficient traffic, the domain will be redirected to ads. Long story short, all your hard work will be wasted and .tk will make cash from your traffic.

    Better to go with cheap .info and a cheap hosting package.

    Cool thanks guys, I thought it would be possible but I hate dealing with sites and didn't wanna sign up and wast a tonne of time setting it up only to find it didn't work cos it's pretty urgent. Trafffic won't be a problem, it's just a quick ad-on site to a couple of my main ones so I can point customers to a new service I'm testing out. Cheers!
