Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have been trying to setup a couple of .tk based domains and am having a lot of trouble getting two to serve. I can easily get either site serving to both domains but not each site to each domain and am know starting to wonder if this is due to how the .tk domains work.

Could any shed some light on if my assumption is correct? If it's not then I am just having weird vhost issues.

Any help much appreciated.

Cripes - after looking into the .tk situation, it's ridiculous. I'd forget about it and choose a new TLD if I were you. From what I can tell, they won't let you specify your own NS records or DNS records at all for that matter, and they force all traffic through some sort of service that wraps all pages in a frame. It's not worth your time to fight this. –  EEAA May 10 '12 at 4:19
Hi ErikA, yeah it's a mess but it's also free. And I am trying to help a friend host a couple of his sites from his machine. Did you delete the comments? They could be handy for anyone else messing about with .tk domains. –  dibs May 10 '12 at 4:22
Yes, I deleted the answer, as I wrote it assuming that the .tk folks weren't as evil as they actually appear to be. Domain registration is dirt cheap - a few USD/year. I'd just register a proper domain and be done with it. –  EEAA May 10 '12 at 4:24
Lol, I know it's cheap, I'll point him at this page. I would like to be able to use .tk addresses still though. –  dibs May 10 '12 at 4:33
