Your best solution is probably http://www.coralcdn.org or using Google's App Engine. It also depends on how much content you think will be downloaded from your site.

I know you have asked for royalty free, free templates and I have listed a few sites, but I have also listed some royalty free, paid template sites as well.

You can edit your hosts file in a way that this domain name points to different IP. For example in Windows the host file is in: \Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ In Ubuntu it is in: /etc/ So you find the file, open it with simple text editor, and write the new IP and the domain name. It must look something like: 92.152.175.86 mydomain.com

Always buy your domain name. The cheapest ones start from 2 dollars up to 15... it's worth it. I once used free co.cc domain for my project and when it got bigger, I troubled so much moving the domain. Usually free domains are used by spammers so people/websites don't trust them either. For an example you can't post any domain ending with co.cc on Facebook. ...

The link in noscript tag could qualify as a hidden link, so it wouldn't be out of the question for Google to penalize for this. However, googlebot should be ignoring links in noscript tags.
