    Well, I registered a couple of domains and used "SmileToSun" august coupon.
    I paid and was viewing the receipt and saw this:

    Example: Register BlackHatWorldIsAwesome.org
    11 Year
    $8.81
    $8.81

    Free BlackHatWorldIsAwesome.info
    (will be registered if available)
    11 Year
    $0.00
    $0.00


    WTF? They are giving free .info domains now?
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    The fuck up thing is... the .info domain ISN'T SECURED with WHOISGUARD.

    Yes, two days ago I saw that. That is awesome marketing by the way. But also it is really great for those that want some free .info domain names!

    So basically when you register .com , they'll offer .info for free as long as you stay registered with the .com right?
