Im new to the domain name stuff....

I already have my site hosted for free on free.prohosting.com, and i want to register my domain name for it...

I dont think prohosting does domain hosting for free, so i was just wondering what you would call a domain register that acts just like a redirector (cjb.net, arrive.to, myname.is) ... I dont have a clue about that DNS stuff....

I dont really mind having my links point to [free.prohosting.com...] , although if they could point to [mydomain.com...] that would be even better!

Anyways, i just want a domain name for my existing free hosting service...

I ONLY want to pay like 10 bucks for a domain name, nothing else!!! Someone please help me :p

Your best bet is GoDaddy.com for $9...

gandi.net is about $10 and easy to use. I have set up a few domains that direct traffic back to existing free sites, like you are referring to, in only a few minutes. It will walk you though the process. I have not tried Godaddy as Hunter sugested but I have read that several people are happy with them as well.

Sounds good and all *BUT*

Me too young for a mastercard, so the only way would be to pay via mail or cheque....

Get one of those 7-11 internet cards.
Put $20 on it or whatever and go buy your domain name online,it's just like a Amex...
