Meaning of "free" in domain names

  • Dear user,

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. As we are based in Gibraltar which is part of the EU and we have customers all over the world we are obligated to follow the new regulation as of May 25, 2018.

    Accordingly, although we must request full contact information from each of you so our systems and webpage may continue to function we will restrict processing and data transfers as much as possible. When logged into we will display only your chosen handle and no other specific information unless requested by you. In order to request your specific information be revealed please go into your account settings and check the radio boxes next to the information. By default all information is private.

    To cover all aspects of GDPR we have published a new / updated agreement (which includes our terms and privacy policy) that will become effective on May 25, 2018. It may be found at:

    Onward and upwards;

Hi all

Is there a practice in choosing domain name to equate "3" with "free" (eg "" = ""); if so, how prevalent is this? Do people generally accept such notion, rather like "4" equating "for"?

Any pointers would be most welcome.

Where did you hear of that 3=free model from, sas? I haven't heard about these kind of sites in my 7 years of surfin. Could you show an existing example?

I guess ''3" is pronounced as "free" if you've lost your front teeth, so may be good for senior citizen sites.

Good luck!
