What About cu.cc domains?

by 11 comments
Just came across this CU.CC - Free Domain Registration + Free DNS Service. site where it is offering free cu.cc domains with DNS service. I know co.cc domains were banned earlier by Google but this cu.cc domains are new to me. Are they banned too or it is a good idea to use them?

    What are you going to use them for?

    Even if they're not banned...build a site on a .com.

    Yes, it is offering that, but the wording's deceptive. ".cu.cc" isn't a domain extension. ".cc" is the extension, and the "cu" part is the domain-name. Your own part that goes before the ".cu" is only a subdomain. How secure is that?

    I wouldn't touch them, anyway (not even if I wanted to rank a site in the Cocos Islands, for some reason).

    My advice would be to use .com.
    It's like you are taking a risks.

    If you want to to test something online with free stuffs like that it's not an issue, but for serious site, I'd go away from those kind of them such as .cu.cc or .tk.

    Definitely wouldn't be worth it. .com, .net and country specific domains (.com.au, .co.uk) are the only domains that you should be using. Anything else just looks cheap, unprofessional and if you are selling something, people's spam radar goes off.
