  • Yes, free.   For explorers.   For land owners there are costs. 
  • But explore first.  Start exploring on the web:  Explore worlds.
  • If you are on the Hypergrid,  you can come directly to any of those worlds.
  • Click on the picture.  On the world page that opens, get the Hypergrid address.
  • In Firestorm, paste the Hypergrid address into the address bar.
  • Or in any viewer, paste the Hypergrid address into the search bar of the world map. 

Or check the web

If you are not on the Hypergrid

  • Get a free Kitely account.  Ignore that free world you get.
  • It won't stay free and exploring does not need land.
  • Set up your viewer.  I use Firestorm.
  • FIRESTORM: Logging on to Kitely or another grid.
  • You will enter at the Kitely Welcome Center.
  • Look for the Worlds Showcase.  That has places you can explore.
  • Join the Kitely community group--and ask any questions you want.
  • You can get an invitation by clicking on a sign that mentions it.

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in couple of minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day. 
If you get an address like this: 
paste it into the address bar of Firestorm, see if it takes you to the exact coordinates.
