I am currently stuck with the following situation. Imagine that there is a website which offers premium content that only paying members can access. However, there are a few pages which is available for everyone. Which word can be used to describe those public available pages?

Problem is, that I cannot use „public“ because this word is an identifier in the programming language I am using.

    What does the programming language have to do with what you call it? You can call it "Freddie" in your programs and still display "Public" – mplungjan Oct 7 '13 at 13:03

    That pricing model is sometimes referred to as "freemium", where some content is free and available to anyone, but premium content is available only to paid subscribers. – LindaCamillo Oct 7 '13 at 13:24

    Off topic (request for advice on naming variables). – MetaEd Oct 7 '13 at 13:47

    Just to clarify: This is not a request for naming of variables. This is not off-topic either. – Kris Oct 7 '13 at 15:08

Open/free/general/unpaid/complimentary pick one that best suits your need.


Since the content is not subject to a premium, perhaps you could use freely available instead.
