Free domain owner?

I registerd and got a free domain, now my question is… who is the owner of this domain?

Am i the owner (so i can take it anywhere else if i want to)
Or is Dreamhost the owner (and if i want to use this domain i am always bound to dreamhost).


You are the owner. If you take it away and host it elsewhere, then you will have to pay dreamhost for the domain name registration (you can also then move it to another provider.) If you continue hosting it here at dreamhost, it will always retain the free registration each year.

If you do host elsewhere, it will still be yours, providing you pay the yearly registration fees. $9.95 per year I think.

I think!

yes, this is correct. It’s your domain.
