Custom domain can be costly especially for those who are newbie but want to make their own website. It is the same for me, I do not want to throw my money on something that I do not even know the probability of me success in doing it.
Custom domain can range from .COM the most popular to .xyz – the cheapest domain. But we still need to pay for them. I still remember when I bought two domains without doing anything with it. I just lost. Do not know what to do. Same with you guys who still new in this website stuff.
Do Not Jump Without Checking the Waterhunt-treasury.com
My advice even if you want to jump in the water, just make sure you have your life support with you. Same with free domain!

To get this domain, go to NameCheap and you can check if your favorite domain name still available.
Click on find button and you will be notify if the domain still available or not. If yes, continue to complete order. There you will see the total is 0.00$. After that you will be directed to last page where they asked for .edu email.
Unfortunately this offer available only for US, UK, CA and AU universities. Though you still have luck! Register for Github Student developer Pack – they accept all .edu email

Congratulations on getting your custom domain. Note that Namecheap tends to give big promotions on their website as low as 0.42$. So make sure to check it out.
The whole internet community already know about this particular domain. This free domain are given for lifetime with no string attach.
Luckily all members from any countries are allowed to register this domain. Unfortunately, .tk domain is really popular among spammer and adware so be careful when using this domain.

It is hard for me to find a beautiful name that using .tk domain. Maybe this also become one of the challenge you need to go through before having a decent domain name for free.
Freenom give you free custom domain – .TK / .ML / .CF / .GQ / .GA which not as good as .COM domain but if you research about unique names, it can help making your domain looks really custom made.
For example – with .ML domain you can use “learntoht.ml / howtoht.ml” or if you want to use .GA – just use “newsladyga.ga / readfreeman.ga“. Just think out of the box and you can get your cool free custom domain free of charge!
Just be careful, there are many complain about how Freenom taking back their free domain when the domain start to rank. If your experimental website succeed out of your expectation, you can bought the domain and transfer it to other trusted registrar such as Porkbun or Namesilo.

It gave you option whether you want to redirect or add the NS (NameServer) if you already have hosting. The redirect have 2 types:
Redirection by frame: the url of your site is hidden, only your Nitrogen domain is visible
Direct redirection: the url of your site is visible in the address bar of the navigator of your visitors
Use Domain DNS, IP Domain and CNAME domain only when you already have available hosting. If you have the free WordPress website with .wordpress.com as it domain you should use redirection by frame.
From technolatest.wordpress.com to technolatest.infos.st <– This is the url that your visitor will see.
