No, not really, but yet partially true.
If you own a domain, example.com, and you decide to run a domain name
server yourself rather than have another company run it for you, then
you can add subdomains at zero cost. quozl.example.com and so on.
If you have outsourced your domain name server to a supplier, then of
course they might want to be paid for the addition of subdomains.
You can't just run a domain name server in order to register domains,
because you need a domain to start with.
The trick to remember is that a domain has to live somewhere on a domain
name server. Such a server has to be perpetually available if you want
the domain name to actually work.
