    I already make some website on .tk domain, build content and backlink, after I got many visitor, suddenly everything is gone
    Actually I already beware about this scam method, when I googling about dot.tk scam how they steal high traffic "free" domain and parking them for ads, but I want to know is it true or not, because I already make some sites there. Well.. shit happen

    When I login to some of my domain that not been steal yet, I try to upgrade to "premium" domain, they charge $19.90 for 2 years!!
    So.. this is their method to make money, beware of dot.tk domain.

    Dumb thing here was using a tk domain

    If you can't gather 20 lousy bucks for domain and hosting you should just stick to your day job

    If you're serious about your business then don't go for FREE stuff ever!!!
    If you can't afford $10 on a dot com then buy a dot info instead, at least no one will be able to steal it from you!

    I just using dot.tk because I'd like to try my method using free domain.
    It's worth to know about this. I think it's better using co.cc free domain since they don't steal domain, but they'll charge for 2nd year, except it's not commercial site.

    Contact .tk and buy the domain you lost from them..
    It's cheap and they will sell you back your domain.

    Here is my thread 6 months ago warning people about them. They didn't even give me an option to upgrade.

    From my experience dot cc are soooo slow...

    I registered a domain (under 1 account) and made it to forward to another site and it took them 3 days for it to eventually work!
    Then I registered another domain with them, this was nearly 2 months ago and under my same account, ant to date it is still not forwarding to where I set it up to forward! Thats my experience from using co.cc, wont be using them ever again! Luckily I was only using them to test something out and not for a long-term venture!

    It's true, I don't find any option to upgrade my domain after they steal it.
    Lucky I register on several account so they don't take over it on the same time. I lost 4 domain but I can save and purchase 2 domain.

    Damn, it has the same price as .com/.net/.org $19.90 for 2 years
