Rules and description of "free"

Free is a web-based search tool used to determine whether a domain name is available for registration.

When given a search string, Free responds with ”occupied” if the domain name is already registered, or ”free” if it is available. You can reach the tool for .se domainsat the following address: http://free.iis.se/free?q=example.se where ”example.se” is the domain name you want to check.

You can reach the tool for .nu domains at the following address: http://free.iis.nu/free?q=example.nu where ”example.nu” is the domain name you want to check.

The tool ”Free” is identical to the DAS (Domain Availability Service) other registries provide.
