There are three companies now offering the free
info deal. Two require credit cards and if you read everything carefully they will automatically renew those domains before they expire in one year, unless you advise otherwise in advance. Other than that, I do not see any negatives. The info registrars are doing this promotion for various reasons including # 1 is to get more customers; I personally discovered one registrar of the three that I really like and will be doing more business with them in the .info, .com, etc. Two, they hope that you will try some of their hosting or email services and they will make money, and of course if you renew the domains in a year they will make money.
