This is due to a well known issue with the Road Runner DNS servers.

The resolution is to add a DNS server that will resolve the .tk domain infrastructure properly.

Please follow these steps if you are having this issue:

1) Record your current DNS servers.

1.a) If you are running Windows NT/2000/XP, open a command prompt and run ipconfig /all and write down your DNS servers.

1.b) If you are running a Linux / Unix variant, open a command prompt/terminal and type cat /etc/resolv.conf - write down the IP addresses returned.

1.c) If you running a Mac OSX variant: INFO NEEDED

2) Change your DNS servers.

2.a) If you're running Windows 2000/XP, go into the control panel and bring up the properties of your local area connection. Add one of your main DNS server IP addresses from step one as the "Preferred DNS Server", then use the IP address '4.2.2.1' as the "Alternate DNS Server".

2.b) If you are running a Linux / Unix variant, type echo "nameserver 4.2.2.1 >> /etc/resolv.conf"

2.c) If you are running a Mac OSX variant: INFO NEEDED

You should now be able to resolve .tk domains.
