Directory Top 11 Websites?





deanhills
I just happened (by accident) to bump into the Frihost Directory Top 11 Websites and when I started to click through them discovered only 3 of them are working (the black bolded ones):

Inuyasha Foumsr
•Blaster
The Equine Dream
•Defection Design Studios
•iScorpio
•Webbie
•Patna Educational Community
•Bondings World
•Paradise Catz
Teen Hungama
Reviews Of The Gods

Something must be horribly wrong with the last (red) one as when I clicked on it Kasperksy (for the first time I can remember) would not allow me to access the Website.

Here are some Websites that I think are deserving (not sure whether they are hosted by Frihost). Maybe others have noticed some nice Websites as well.

I think the directory needs to be binned unless it can be maintained,its not just the top 11,going through all tthe catergories,its hard to find a working link.

That is an excellent and probably the most practical solution.

Heeeeeey I recognize that URL, thanks buddy.

Not hosted with Frihost anymore but it served me well for a long time, got to learn all the tactics I use on my big server here.

If I could be linked somewhere that would be good? In the directory perhaps would do me... my page rank has gone from 4 to 3 lately Crying or Very sad don't know what the policy is though, I would imagine it's just Frihosted sites.

I think I agree with Truespeed however, probably better to drop the Directory. Or maybe one could make a competition for the best Frihost Website and list the names of the winners. Or something like that.

Drop the content of the Directory and rewrite the code with more functions. I think it is a good idea to keep it with administrator control for submitting a new directory. But I think that editing the details (not the URL) should be freely for the user, just like the deletion of a directory listing. (You can't do anything wrong with deleting a listing, I think Razz ).

Maybe a few lines of PHP could be built in to ping the domain or whatever, and show "offline/online". It's easy with a standard web page, just fopen... I've been doing it recently with my stream.

Maybe Bondings can turn the directory listings into posts, almost exactly how he created the About page and FAQ page into posts.

This will allow all staff to be able to edit the listings, which will help in keeping it up to date. If it isn't too difficult, maybe each user who has a submitted listing would be allowed to edit their own listing.

If not, then requesting services for the listing would be quicker and easier if all of the staff was able to help.

I don't think we should totally remove the directory listing. I quite like it and I do actually use it. But it is in need of some attention.

I like your idea. I quickly realized that many of these domains are now parked or for sale, which can not be readily detected by a simple script. In any case, the sites _should_ be currently hosted by frihost to be listed, unless there is a new category.

A test to see if the name resolves to a frihost IP and a default home page actually loads should be sufficient to declare a site currently active. Perhaps sites failing the test could be considered "offline" for a couple of months, then deleted from the directory if they remained continuously offline. Presumably offline sites would not show up by default, but could be specifically requested when viewing the directory.

Listings for sites not hosted at Frihost could be allowed, but it creates some issues.

* Either a point per day could be subtracted, or coins could be charged (in addition to the bid). If points were charged, it would be reasonable to automatically remove the listing at some negative balance (perhaps -50).

* The test for a valid site wouldn't be as reliable, since a parked site cannot easily be rejected. One possible compensation would be to limit the period the listing would be active, perhaps to three months after last request.

Would be nice if you could fix it. Particularly since there does not seem likely that it will be removed in the foreseeable future ....

It is a working website... Just leads to a business website that I'm sure no of you have an interest in since its in my area.

Um... you can make that 'Only 2 working' now... The Equine Dream has been down ever since the domain expired.
