I’d strongly recommend against that, you wouldn’t want your potential buyers to see a free domain, with ads, on your demo, right?

Or not see anything at all if it goes down when you get a traffic spike.

Definitely buy your own domain and get a decent hosting. All those free services usually doesn’t work when the traffic is high (and in that while you’re on the front page on Themeforest, you’ll get a lot of traffic).

Get your own hosting!

Once you’ve sold your item a few times, (depending on how much the item is selling for) it will have paid off your hosting fees for the next 3-12 months and you’ll be in the positive figures again.

Themeforest is a businees. You made your theme to earn money. You can’t earn money without investing money! This is real life. Buy good hosting or VDS/VPS at start. Be ready to have 2000+ visitors in first release day when your item will be on Homepage (not all hosting will ready for this number of visitors).
