    Is https://www.buy.ooo/ really offers free domains with the extension .ooo, or I have to purchase paid product to active the free domain?

    It's Free - but with like every other free tld (.tk etc.) it's going to be spammed to death soon.

    But when I changed the nameservers, and added the domain to my server nothing happened after couple of hours, so I was wondering do you have up and running site with .ooo extension? without having to pay the paid product

    Yea it's free, though just a heads up that they renew at about $25 per year. Luckily buy.ooo doesn't require a credit card on file at this time so no need to worry about them all renewing on you. I'd take advantage of this while you can.

    it's free for a year only at the given site, all other domain providers are selling it on regular prices which is on the higher side so it is not like .tk and it wont get spammed to death like them.

    They may have longer DNS propagation times, it can be up to 48 hrs with some registrars or you haven't cleared your cache.

    redarrow.ooo valid
    www.redarrow.ooo not valid .

    your using the sub domain as domain names with exstention .ooo

    It's a promo on that particular registrar, otherwise the extension costs money, more than .com, it's nothing like dot tk. Back then i registered more than 100 .webcam domains, when they were free on AlpNames, i still have 30+ out of those to present day. If someone wants a free domain which is not from Freenom, it's the right time to get one.

    1st year is free, and then after approx 30$ per year (may be lesser or higher). If you want a temporary domian, then its good choice, but if you have planned for long term, its very expensive.

    I had to see what you meant as for me OOO = out of office lol
    You could use them for spam (or get cheap $0.50 xyz) but no other value in it.

    Thanks for bringing these to my attention

    Anyone know how long registration usually takes with these?

    Takes up to 48 hours. I'm just seeing mine come through from Wednesday (got over 50 of them).

    Looks like promotion is over now FYI.
