Get a free domain name from a Pacific coral island

This is a 'quickie' just to update you all on a fantastic new place to register domain names, absolutely free forever - find banner at the end of this post.

You are looking at a little Pacific island group called the Tokelau Islands. They are miles off the tourist track and have no obvious or reliable way for islanders to make any money or even grow very much food. There are multiple coral islands and reefs. The whole group only covers 4.7 square miles (12 square kilometers) and if you wanted to go there, it would take a flight to Samoa followed  by a 37 hour boat trip.

The inhabitants have been there for over a thousand years and traditional stories link them with the Cook Islands and Tuvalu. It is an NZ non-self-governing territory.

To help fund essential services on the islands like education and healthcare, they have started an internet project supported by a number of Fortune 500 worldwide companies. 

To find out more about the islands and their internet project go to

Tokelau Information

They have set up the project in such a way that they can offer the world free domain registration for up to 12 months renewable. Longer registrations are available but are paid.

If domains expire that have had good traffic, they will be used to host advertising, another form of revenue. I think it is a great way to get a free domain and to benefit the inhabitants of one of the most remote places in the world. Click below for your free .tk domain. It's time to get real and recognize that it doesn't really matter what is on the end of your domain name, it's the name itself that counts - whether it is yours or something else memorable and unique.

They have some recommended hosting companies, but I already have free unlimited hosting as a feature of my GVO account, which is a fantastic bargain at just $9.95 per month as it also includes a top class autoresponder which you will pay more than double that amount just for the A/R alone elsewhere.

If you just want a domain that you can re-direct to an affiliate site, you can do that right from the domain registration - click on the banner to get started and get unlimited free domains today.

Cash when you share videos with your friends

One of my friends has a long mailing list of other friends who like jokes. Some of them are pretty smutty and sexist, but occasionally he sends out something really funny. 

I also send him jokes to pass on. A few days ago, I sent him a video link. The link was for a Heineken ad, that was apparently banned, probably for being sexist but it did make me smile. Clearly my friend's friends are also passing it on, because my tracking shows that the link is still being watched many times each day.

The great thing is that every one of those views and shares is making me money. I created the link on a site called UvioO which pays me to share video links. I post on Facebook, in Twitter and on other social networks and of course I email links to friends. 

 You can make more money on UvioO by paying for checkpoints and map positions, but I'm unsure about this at the moment. I am doing some research and looking for someone who has actually been paid. The idea is that you gain more than you pay out for checkpoints and maps. 

 UvioO accepts cards and Payza inwards and checks, Payza and SolidTrustPay to pay you. I'm not sure why they won't accept STP inwards, and I may wait till this happens, or Payza finally starts accepting business from the UK again which isn't looking like it is going to be any time soon. 

 There is a Pro option which gives you additional money for your activities. I'm not looking at this one as a possible major source of online income, just a small trickle and I'll see where it goes. 

  Here is the link to take a look how it all works.
