(Solved! But, bug still needs fixing!) Legacy user. Can't activate 5th free domain. Incorrect free domain info?

I'm unable to follow the instructions here: https://www.zoneedit.com/free-dns/ under "How To Add a Zone for Free DNS". (v2)

The member home page I see (at https://cp.zoneedit.com/home/) looks nothing like the one shown in the instructions; they seem to be incorrect. (v2)

Instead, I can only choose 'add a domain' from the Domains menu, but then I have to agree to a credit a month - and risk .

It does show "all domains (showing 4 out of 4 total)"...

Also, I had to simplify/delete half of the above post in order to get past this error message and get it to actually post:

Solved part:
(Hours later: )

Aha! At https://cp.zoneedit.com/signup/ (1) there's now "You have 1 free slots left. Add Free DNS Domain you have already registered" and the latter link is to https://cp.zoneedit.com/signup/free_dns.php It wasn't there before. It took a while (hours) to appear there after I deleted an inactive domain. (Now that I've added a 5th domain via that page, that text is again gone from (1) .)

Someone should fix the instructions.

Thanks for the free service! :)
