What is FreeDNS?

Free DNS is a DNS hosting service provided to help people whose domain registrars did not include DNS hosting with domain registrations.

That is, if you have a domain registered somewhere but have no DNS, you can use Namecheap's DNS free of charge. You can also use our DNS as a backup if your current registrar already provided you with DNS or when the domain is being transferred in order to avoid downtime.

You can also take a look at our guide for information on how to enroll your domain for Free DNS and learn how to avoid downtime during transfer.

That's it!
