Goodbye Freenom®, hello Nic.ua !
A small company from the Ukraine called NIC.UA LLC is offering free .PP.UA domains to any registrant! The sign-up is very easy and a confirmation code is sent by SMS to activate the domain, or you can also use a robot on Telegram. Note that you can only activate 3 domains per period of 30 days with the same contact number.
Another great feature of these domains is that: you can register a domain using emoji! So potentially you could register:
While Chinese characters do not work, the two Japanese alphabets Katakana (カタカナ) and Hiragana (ひらがな) can be used!
Thank you NIC.UA! 👍
