    Hey guys. I know very little about webdesign, so forgive me if my question is a bit off. I have made a website (which I think looks decent enough) through a free website maker. They let you use your own domain, but only if signed up for a premium account which conveniently costs just short of 40 a year. It is just a simple site and preferably long-term, so this is completely out of budget.

    I have been able to shorten it through a free .tk domain, but I am wondering if it is possible - and also legal - to use my own .co.uk domain in a similar way to avoid paying for premium.

    Any help is appreciated,
    Darran.

    Nope, for your domain to work with anything but their names, they have to add a dns pointer to the site on their servers. No way around it. So they charge you to do that, but they also know that with a top level domain, your site will more than likely get more traffic.

    That's why they charge a premium to use your own domain name.
