How save are these free domains? What is the maxiumum traffic allowed ? or has this only to do with the hosting? I feel there are some downsides to free domains.

No there are no downsides and everything is same as other domains the only difference is that they are not TLD and they get slowly indexed by search engines


Thanks for clearing that up. Seems interesting.
