Dot ML is the new top level domain for Malaysia. It is modern, open and free. With its clear Malaysian identity, .ML is the perfect choice for all businesses and internet users in Malaysia. There are no restrictions on registration and all domains are offered on a "first come, first serve" basis. Best of all: Dot ML is FREE!
Yes! Dot ML domains are really Free. They work exactly like a .com or .my domain.
No. We will never show ads on your website.
No. Renewals are Free, and you can renew an unlimited number of times.
An automatic reminder email is sent when the expiration date approaches. You can only renew a Free Domain in the last 14 days before expiration. A domain that is not renewed will expire. Expired domains become available for registration again.
.ML is supported by Freenom, the second largest domain company in the world. Freenom has over 10 years of domain experience and more than 30 million active domains under management. Freenom operates a global redundant anycast infrastructure, which guarantees the availability and performance of your .ML domain.
You can use your .ML domain like any other domain: we provide a redirection service (URL Forward), free DNS (where you can enter your A, CNAME, MX and other type of records) or you can use your own DNS (Name Servers).
Free Domains must comply with Dot ML's Content Policy, to prevent cyber squatting and abuse. Therefore, Free Domains without content or used for spam, fraud, and illegal content can be deleted. Illegal content includes adult, gambling, racism or drugs related sites.
Domain names can also be purchased for an annual price of RM 30. Paid domains can be registered for a longer period of one year, can be transferred to other registrants and are licensed to its buyer. The Dot ML Content Policy does not apply to Paid Domains. Free Domains can be upgraded to Paid Domains in the Domain section of My Dot ML.
After a Dree Domain expires, it sometimes still receives web visitors. Those visitors usually see an error message saying "this domain does not exist". Instead of this, Freenom redirects the visitor to an advertising page, generating income.
This means that we only make money after a domain expires. Not all domains expire so the majority of Free Domains will never generate any revenue.
Some high value names (or premium names) such as short names and common dictionary words are "Special Domains" and cannot be registered for free. They can only be purchased.
All domains that are not Special Domains can be registered as Free or Paid domains. Paid domains offer additional advantages, as shown in the overview below:
|Free domains||Paid domains|
|URL Forward, Free DNS, Custom DNS||URL Forward, Free DNS, Custom DNS|
|Must comply with Content Policy||No Content Policy|
|Must be renewed min. once per year||Can be purchased for up to 10 years|
|Cannot be transferred||Can be transferred for free|
|No WHOIS access||Full WHOIS access|
In order to become a Reseller, you simply need to register and deposit a minimum of RM 30 in your account. You get RM 30 credit to spend on Paid and Special domains, so the reseller plan itself is free.
As a reseller, you get a discount on all Paid and Special Domains, and get access to the Dot ML API and Modules.
How can I get access to the API? API Documentation has more details.
We also provide a WHMCS Module, which is available to download in My Dot ML.
No. We don't provide hosting at the moment.
Domains are offered on a "first come, first serve" basis. So it is not possible to take a domain that is already registered by someone else. If you think a domain infringes on your trademark or is used for abusive purpose, you can Report Abuse.
No. All Free Domains remain the property of the Dot ML Registry and the Registry's name appears in the WHOIS of Free Domains. If you want your name to appear in the WHOIS, you need to upgrade to a Paid domain in My Dot ML.
Free Domains cannot be transferred and need to be upgraded to Paid domains before a transfer is possible. Paid domains can be transferred for free.
Dot ML is a partnership between Freenom, the world's second largest domain name provider, and AGETIC of Mali. Please refer to the What is Dot ML section for more information.
