Does anyone know a website where you can create a free domain address? My sister wants a personalised @ address. Hope you can help! Best Wishes, Natasha

If you want a domain your going to have to register it. Then your going to need a DNS server to point it at and from there point it to the IP of a mail server. (mail.filetrekker.com is mine, for example). Some domain registrars offer e-mail and hosting services with the domain purchase but this often bumps up the cost from your own server.

Domains costs vary depending on what domain you want and who you buy with. .com tends to be arround £20 for two years and .co.uk £10 for 2 years, .net and .org ect. are also £20 for two years generally.

EDIT: oh. and .tk domains are free. There not the same thing though. They can forward to a website or relay email to another email address. everyone can spot a .tk domain too. But there the only truely free "domains" you could get. www.dot.tk if your intrested.
