Was good before changes rating

I used to have a previous site on the year 2008/2009 and Freehostia used to be good.After the changes in the control panel,and for some reason, the site became too slow??is this because of all these video tutorials?

Disgusting rating

You guys are doing a shit job of running your service. Give it up, or sell it for gods sake.

Free hostia sucks!!!! rating

Hi, would like to say i have had several domains on diff servers, and this one is now at the bottom of list for dependability. I started off as free, but am now paying for my hosting services, nothing has changed, servers are constantly going down, even tho it is brief. Switching back to GODaddy very soon, as i never had problems with them.

500 kB max file size

It would have been nice (probably even more legal?) if they said there is a 500 kilobyte limit on individual file sizes. Took me awhile to figure out why the ZIP file I uploaded (it uploaded ok) would not download from the site. Ah. 500 kB limit. (NOT 1 MB as is listed on the FreeHostia information, above.)

Freehostia updated their servers, and in the process wiped all my email accounts. They offered 1 month extra free as compensation, but I still lost a load of work because of them. My domain was due for renewal on 3/10/2011 and with the supposed extra month the cpanel states renewal date 8th october 2011. I now find they have cut my service early. So kep back from this shower of utter morons!

New Bad Rules

They stopped accepting co.cc free domains.. That what I hate, may be they have to let people free if they choose their domain names.. this is a bad rule.

Libisa: Reviewer Country Freehostia are among the worst for a pay account. I needed to change CNAME records and they say they don't support that. I ask for assistance and they blank me. They are a complete disgrace. Do yourself a favour and keep well away from that mob.

Oliver: Reviewer Country You don't need to register your domain with FreeHostia, you just need to have a paid domain - this is a way of filtering abusers.

So far it's good rating

All I can say is that so far I enjoy their service and feedback for my website. I don't get banners. My site loads properly and quickly. I don't use the database functions so I can't tell you about that. After doing about a month or so of SEO work on my part, my website can now by located from practically any search engine. Nice helpful videos. That's about all I can say for now. My only issue was the short length of time their website would time out and I would have to log back in, but as a computer personnel I understand the security risks involved for longer periods of time. Cheers

Worst Service Ever rating

NO email sending. NOT WORDPRESS FRIENDLY-seriously, PLEASE look elsewhere if you are going to host a blog, the kind of poor experience I had could only be wished on my worst enemy twice removed. They do not tell you that free users are behind a firewall, thus ANY plugin that requires use of your server will be rendered void, that includes FORUMS, SEO packs, Twitter plugins, ASKIMET, Intense Debate, and so much more. Slow Speeds-speaks for itself Shitty upload capacity-only 500mb max ftp uploads, you can't use any powerful plugins, including gallery plugins that automatically watermark your pictures. -99.9% uptime. The servers were always down, sometimes I couldn't even access freehostia.com. The customer service is ok, at least they respond within the hour, even if it's to say "we can't handle this, contact wordpress, thanks-mike jones" Overall, worst experience ever. I am now having a nightmare switching over to justhost...Save yourself the trouble, please.

Perfectly adequate rating

When I first joined, servers were down for a week so you couldn't upload anything but they sent around email and the problem was fixed. The support videos aren't very good but tickets are answered promptly and helpfully. The problem is that you have to renew your plan every year even if you are on a free plan which they don't tell you when you first join. Overall, I would reccomend this web host.

Servers OFF No Notice Given! rating

After months of terrible service with my website going up and down repeatedly, I get an Email on the 14th October 2008 saying Freehostia are transferring servers, the 1st ever Email or slightest hint they'd be a problem. I went to get into my site and it was already down. NO NOTICE GIVEN WHAT-SO-EVER! I can't get into FTP or even to the front panel to place a support ticket. No-one can update their website until the 22nd October 2008 and they refuse to reply to any emails no matter what I send. This is an absolute joke as Freehostia have obviously done this so people can't leave them, they would have known about this upgrade for months! My emails probably won't be sent either. Now I can't even get an EPP Key (transfer authorization code) to move providers as they won't answer Emails and my site is totally down. I would place an awful review about them on-line, but my site is down. I'm now losing hits and lots of indexing on search engines. STAY AWAY FROM FREEHOSTIA!

Don't be conned! rating

I have held domains for 7 years with various different hosting providers, and can safely say that the service I have had from Freehostia has been the worse. I paid for a hosting account with them in Oct 07, and since then they have changed servers so many times! they do not email their clients to advise of server changes, you just suddenly find email is not working etc. The email forwarding works for about a few weeks at a time and then stops altogether. If they cannot solve a simple thing like email forwarding they should not be in this business. The service I have had is disgusting, and I now wonder if its a group of kids taking your money, not really offering a service at all, and then fobbing you off with rubish in the hope that you get so frustrated you take your business elsewhere. It's a joke! It's a con!

freehostia bites free or paid rating

hi> o started out with freeehostia as a free server, which wasnt so bad. then i went to paid service when i bought my dot com name and then things got worse. ever since ocotober 2007 there are frequent outages, files lost, no access to the CP constant problems with thier servers. Ect. Granted i didnt pay much for my hosting but you would think that they could deliver on what they advertise. Makes a decent free host but if youre going to pay for one , doing it here is not worth the hassle.

Freehostia rocks rating

I've had a paid hosting plan with them for 2 years and find their support outstanding with very timely responses with detailed problem fixes and descriptions. Also my online time server reports always show at least a 98 percent online status. All in all, Very excellent service and product for the cost which is very economic..... Highly recommended

Awful rating

I had a paid hosting plan, not the free one. Very frequent outages. Tech support is worthless. Every time I emailed support I think they just ctrl v. The problem will be fixed soon. Back up for a while, down for a while.

Nelly: Reviewer Country I have bought three domain names from Freehostia. On the first day when I installed Wordpress on ONE of may domains without even finishing my site they blocked my hosting account wihout any explanation. I have written them a lot of letters without an answer. Really the worst possible hosting according to me. Avoid!!!

worthless rating

The only reason i gave this service a 2 is because they have a good control panel, everything else sucks.
