      I do :) I have tried using free hosting but it's never the same as your own domain, there is so much you can't do with free hosting.

      I probably own too many. Renewal fees are never a nice thing!

      I totally agree with Shortie as far as sub-domains are concerned. I prefer to be in control of my own domains. I'll only ever go with a registrar I trust (namecheap mainly) and I would NEVER buy hosting and a domain from the same provider.

      I own a few which are being used for my websites/forums, also a few that's just parked.

      I used to purchase domains back in the days for people that couldn't afford it, ;)

      I don't mean to brag, but prophpBB is the best.... Not only can you opt out of their free hosting, They can also export your database to your new domain! :woot2:

      I had one years ago, but for now don't see the need for one.
