Free DNS Hosting, Dynamic DNS Hosting, Static DNS Hosting, subdomain and domain hosting.


Why is it free? It's quite simple. We wanted a challenge... that's it.

Possible Uses:
  • Host your own site on your own connection from home/work/school/etc
  • Access your computer with a name (like zeus.afraid.org or yourdomain.com) instead of a numeric IP address
  • Run your own http server, ftp server, or anything you want to install on your computer/server
  • Fetchable URL to update your IP instantly on our network if you have a dynamic address
  • Hosts even work for your LAN. If you have a LAN connected to the internet you can point hosts to private IP addresses (even private IPv6 addresses) and they will work within your network
  • Let your friends point theirname.yourdomain.com to their own connection
  • Use web forwarding to transparently redirect a hostname to another URL. Let our servers handle the redirection
  • afraid.org has been un-interrupted for hundreds of days at a time
  • afraid.org is operated from multiple redundant high capacity well connected servers
Feature List:

  • Funding is supplied by the members who go premium. Funding goes directly to servers and high bandwidth connections they reside on
  • Robust support for CNAME, A, AAAA, MX, NS, TXT, LOC, RP, HINFO, SRV records
  • Are you a web developer? You can use nameserver branding to name our nameservers as your own! Let us worry about the maintenance/redundancy
