At the moment, i have a subdomain of my free host, for example scleppel.host.com
i have another subdomain from that,
is there anywhere i can get some kind of subdomain name from somewhere else, that will make
something like .uni.cc , but they don't do DNS anymore, they have to many accounts or something.
this is a bit complicated, but i can's buy a domain unfortunatly, and i wanted to make the domain easier to remember.

i was looking for something that allowed me to 'add' to the URL, not just covering the existing URL with a frame
What do you mean by "'add' to the URL" exactly?
with Dot TK domains, you have a frame, and you can't have a directory showing, like
it covers it with the frame, i doubt there'll be what i want though, i was just trying to cover the vertual subdomain with a free domain...
I'm not aware of any services that offer that for free, but that is insufficient to prove that none exist. You've got the right idea, though, having hit upon the major disadvantage of frame-based "web forwarding" domains. Good luck looking for one.
Why do you want too do that? Seems a lot of trouble to me. I run my own server so this is no problem for me to do for one of my domain names but is much more complicated than just stringing it on the end like this:
With a sub domain you need access to the DNS and to the Apache config file. You also have to set up another virtual host and possible another branch in the directory tree.
The other thing is because each sub domain has its own DNS entry you cannot use relitive URLs, another good reason not to bother unless they are completely separate websites. Also the domain name looks very confused, for example: my_animals.com is pretty easy to understand compared to 4_legs.my_dog.last_years_holiday.my_animals.com. Don't you think? If i was in your situation I think I would rather register a straight forward, descriptive domain name and then use http forwarding to get your viewers to your site.
There is no right and wrong way to do this though so all the above is just my opinion.
