Are there many hosting packages that offer "free" domain in the package if tomorrow I change the hosting the domain remains mine?
If I intact the domain to a nominee how can I prevent this person from taking possession of it?
Another question: if I wanted to remain anonymous in the purchase of a domain apart from the payment with bitcoins or create an off-shore company and make a name for it, are there other solutions?
Thank you.

Most of them that is the case but READ the ToS and/or conditions of the "free domain" offering so you understand what their "take" is.

Usually they just deduct the domain's pricing but others will charge for changing the name servers (and you would NOT be able to do this on your end) and other ridiculous things.

The domain may be free, but it is the company that will manage it (the domain will be under their account). So if you decide to leave, terms of service might kick into action. As Harv45 stated, read the TOS. If they do not stipulate the domain conditions, it is a good idea to contact the company directly and ask this question, so you don't find yourself at an epic disadvantage after.

The way we deal with free domains is.

1) These are registered in our name and in our account.
2) If the clients wants to move hosts the options we give them are i) Pay the full price of the domain and we then change registrant details to their name etc. and place it in a domain account in their name. ii) We agree to change the nameservers for a fee and the domain remains in our name. iii) The give up the domain and we try and sell it .

It is most important to go through the policies and terms of services for the free domains. There is 99% cost associated with domain registrar transfer for the free domains as well as if anyone would like to purchase it then it has go though the bid many times.

Even DNS update has the cost associated with it so make sure to read all the terms.

if its a .uk domain then transfers are free, but we still as hosts have to pay to register the domain.

We only give free domains to high priced annual paid plans or monthly plans where we know the initial months charge will cover the domains cost. This was we dont lose out

if the whois domain using your email, you have the auth code, and can unlocked the domain

its enough to transfer the domain to other webhosting/registrar, even if its free domain before

Auth code DOES NOT unlock a domain.
Auth code just gives the authority to transfer the domain to a new registrar

so both are different thing, to be able doing domain transfer
