.TK - Tokelau

Online Domain Name Extension Directory

Location: Polynesia, South Western Pacific Ocean, north of Western Samoa.

Domain Name availability: Open to everyone. Tokelau encourages world wide use of its domain.

Registry: www.dot.tk/

Whois: whois.dot.tk

Cost: FREE! Paid services are also available for US $9.95 per year.

Second level extensions: no offical.

Much of the reason for the free domain offer is the native attitude of sharing that still exists on the islands. Their website - www.dot.tk/ - is beautiful and impressive with some information on the traditions of the people.

Free Domains are limited to three per person. The .tk site must forward to an existing web page - free pages are fine. Each site must have at least 25 home page visitors during each 90 day period (this could be an issue if you do not have a popular site). Transfers are not possible of free sites. One correspondent has stated that, although her site had sufficient traffic the administrators were attempting to push her into a paid site. More reports (good or bad) would be welcome.

$9.95 paid sites are transferable and have few restrictions. Many better names are already claimed.

Tokelau is a non-self-governing territory under NZ administration. There are only 1500 residents of Tokelau.
