Default free domain

I recently made a site and I have got free hosting (the webspace) but it has a really long name and I want to get a domain (I think that is the name I mean the www.whatevergoeshere.com bit) and wondered if I could get a free .com name anywhere, I can get a .tk name for free, but I wanted to know about this before signing up for that

How can a domain name be cheap and crap? Aren't they just a pointer to the owner's website? Never heard it stated like that before

there are plenty of free webspace hosts out there, a google search shows that

most require their banner ads on your free space or their name in domain url

until you want to register your own domain name I suggest using the free personal webspace your ISP provides
