    so you know, when you have a main domain and you have some add-on domains as folders in root, the htaccess for the main domain will interfere with the add-on domains

    To solve this problem, I will have my main domain be something that I will never use. This domain will be used to sign up with hosting. I will not upload anything for the main domain, no htaccess, no nothing. all sites will be added as add-on domains.

    What is the best way of getting a domain like that if I don't want to pay? can I use a .tk domain?
    Does a .tk domain require a lot of maintenance? Do I need to have traffic every month, otherwise they will delete the domain?
    I need something where I can "set it and forget it"

    Namecheap has .xyz domains for $1, I'd grab one of those.

    guys, all those deals are only for the first year, I need something that will be cheap or free forever.
    is there a reason why I shouldn't use .tk domain?

    Just drop the domain after first year. You will still be able to access your hosting cpanel with IP based URL

    Why do you want free domain. A doman does not cost much so better to go for the paid one.
