Web Sites with FRAMES : Special notes
Our link checking bot CAN NOT work with web sites that contain frames (it will not find the link back on a framed web site and can easily terminate the account), so we would recommend you to avoid using frames at least on the first page of your web site.
However, if you still want to use frames you should:
a). Place a link back to CO.NR just like it is described above in the previous tutorial. However, the link to CO.NR MUST be visible on your first page without scrolling down, so that the admins that are going to check your web site manually can easily find the link.
b). Do let our Tech Support know (it is absolutely necessary) that your website contains frames and that you have added the link to CO.NR to your first page.
Forums based (message board) web sites:
It has come to our attention that many .co.nr users that run forums (message boards) experience issues in adding a link back to CO.NR to their forums-software based web sites.

Can't edit HTML code? - Please read below:
In case you do not know how to work with HTML or your web space / web hosting provider does not allow you to edit HTML code, we developed an option to add an alternative text link instead of the default animated button.
So, in this case follow these 2 easy steps:
Step 1: add a text link to the VERY first page of your web site using any option available (any online web page editor provided). We suggest to use the following options:
a). Please link it to FreeDomain.co.nr site URL as follows:
b). For the Link title (text of the link) we'd suggest to use something like the following text, or some other link text that better fits your website style:
The Text link must be visible without scrolling down on the very first page of your web site so that our moderators are able to find it, and upon clicking the link should lead to FreeDomain.co.nr (http://www.freedomain.co.nr) web site.
Do let our Tech Support know (it is absolutely necessary) that you can not use the HTML code provided and thus you added an alternative text link to CO.NR to the VERY first page of your web site and the link is visible without scrolling down.
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers:
1). I don't want to add any links to my site. Can you arrange something?
No, we can not and we will not. In order to use our free service you MUST link back to our web site - it is written in our Terms of Service and stated right on the very first page of account registration.
2). Can I modify/edit the linking code provided?
We do not recommend to do that. If you modify/edit the code our link checking bot will not find the link-back and can easily terminate your account. However, if you still wish to modify the code, please make sure to notify our Tech Support team.
3). Can I add the linking code to some other page (not to the first one)?
No, you can not. If you add the linking code to some other page but the first one, our link checking bot will not find the link back and can easily terminate your account
4). Can I use other linking code or some other image to link to CO.NR?
We do not recommend to do that. If you use other code our link checking bot will not find the link-back and can easily terminate your account. However, if you still wish to use other code, please make sure to notify our Tech Support team.
5). Can I hide the Link to CO.NR using hidden layers and/or by other means?
We wouldn't recommend doing it. Our link checking bot reports the accounts that look like cheating, and than those accounts are checked manually. If an account/domain is caught to be cheating, it is terminated and the owner is banned from using our service forever.
6). I still want to use other linking code (other image) for the link back. Is there any possibility to change the code or image?
You can use the button of other colors (please check the link back tutorial carefully), or you can use a text link option (if you can not edit HTML code).
7). I can not see any button images on your web site. What to do?
Please make sure to enable animated images in your browser options and/or temporary switch OFF your firewall/ads-blocking software.

Please direct ALL your questions, issues, requests regarding linking back to CO.NR to CO.NR Support Forums. Thank you.
