No it only makes you pay for "popular" names. Obscure ones you get for free.

co.cc is now paid? ???

I tried registering a new domain and I had to pay 3$, maybe it's because I was using an account that had already registered 2, but I think it was a "fresh" one.
No, I think you only get 2 free domains.

I think it's still free, except for some names they consider particularly "valuable" (like axe.co.cc).

So what's your new domain name, ephan?

Even Google is going to be paid or locked up soon.

I confirm, I'm not able to register more than 2 domains either.

They'll never do that.

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

Lol, they wouldn't. If search engines were for pay, nobody would see their ads ;)

I still have the old davidgom.co.cc but I got another one somewhere else >:D It was ephan.co.cc I wanted, no idea why it's popular.

I guess it's just the two-domain limit then, as t0xic and Juju found.

It isn't, it was a fresh account, it's because ephan is popular somehow.

Since this happened, a lot of websites have disappeared (taken down or moved to an unknown location).  I don't really think this is fair for google to do, but they can.  :\

Yeah, I confirmed that. It said $3 a year even though I did not register any other names. BTW, thegame.co.cc is only $11/year if anyone is interested.

I guess names with low number of letters or high number of buzz words aren't free, like .tk.

Meh, this kinda sucks.

At least Google is letting you appeal, thought.  That's sort of nice of them, I guess.
My website: Currently boring.

Projects:
Axe Interpreter
   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

...which takes up to three months x.x

Just as traffic on my site from Google approached 25%.
