Vote for Frihost





deanhills
Would be great if those who love Frihost could show their support by posting a review or just clicking on the voting button at FreeWebSpace.net. FreeWebSpace.net is a directory of Free Webhosts.

If you wish to place a review, you need to register first. Registration is to the left of the Frihost page. Most important however is to click on the voting buttons directly under the Frihost write-up, and remember to click on the fifth star for excellent.

Thanks Standready, that's awesome! I'm surprised there was only one review up there when I first tried to get mine up. If you check it out, Blaster's looks like a partial review. Almost as though he had been caught in mid-sentence. Until I discovered that there was something that had not been working in the upload feature of Frihost's reviews. It took some effort in correspondence to get it sorted out, but now it's all systems go. I think if it had worked the first time round when I put a review up, my review would have been much more abbreviated, perhaps three lines or more. The review that went up was about my 12th attempt as the feature was not working and every time I tried it went to a blank page. By the third I started to save it and then add to it and edit it. It sort of became a mission after a while. I couldn't believe it when it finally went up. Hopefully the numbers will grow fast as other Freehosts of the same "age" have in the hundreds of votes and pages of reviews. Frihost deserves the same or better than that (in my biased opinion anyway).

But Helios has a good point. The reviews should be honest and don't need to be works of art. Two to three lines would be great. Even a few words would work well.

Agreed! It does make a difference though, so if you do have a chance one day would be great if you could do that. Quite a large number of people looking for free Website space use Freewebspace.net as their resource.

I'm dead certain it was a case of a post that was cut in half. If we had seen all of it, it would have read completely differently. I know the author of that post loves Frihost. I'm convinced he was trying to make a joke and for some or other reason the uploaded message jammed and was cut in half, and then created a problem as well, because people could not upload their reviews. If you check there is not a period after the last sentence.

Btw I'm thrilled to bits. Looks as though everyone's contributions have Frihost inching towards four stars now. The voting button part must be even more powerful than the reviews. Right on! Hope more people will click on the voting button. Remember, it's the fifth one (excellent!) *grin*

If we can get more people to click on the vote button, maybe one day we will get into the most popular ratings as well. But what we have is awesome. Obviously those reviews helped a lot and there are still ones waiting to be approved. Great stuff!

Right, I can understand it. It takes a bit of effort. If this may help, it takes just one click to get there:
http://www.freewebspace.net/free/Free-webhosting/Frihost/details

Then you have to register in the log-in little window to the left of Frihost's details. That is very fast and effortless. Then click on Submit a Review. And then write one or more words and submit those. And if you think Frihost deserves it, in addition click on one of the voting buttons/stars.

It is a great thrill to see an extra star and a half in the ratings. But that is also a reflection of how much Frihost deserves to be up there. There are not many Free Website hosts who have been around for more than six years, nor have a Forum as active as ours with over 1 million posts.

Oh no! Not again. Does it take you to a blank page? It did that with me when I first tried to do a review, and I thought it was fixed, for at least a few reviews.

You did register first right?

Can you try again, and if it does not work, I'll alert the Website owner of the problem.

I'm not so sure where you got this from? Do you have a link to the spot perhaps?

FreeWebSpace is a Website that could have started out as a Directory of Free Web Hosts (as long ago as the nineties - so it is really quite old), but developed into additional directories like paid Hosts that are low cost, blog hosting and file hosting. Its Forum is mostly for people who are Webhosts, however there is a Sub-Forum where people like you and I can ask for Free Website space, and then Hosts can make an offer of their services. It is actually a valuable tool to check out your Free Web Host. I've seen some of those guys on the Forum really grilling newbie Web hosts. Sort of opened my eyes too how many Free Web Host wannabes there are that are on their way to making a great deal of their customers very unhappy with false promises. We're really lucky to be with Frihost! There are not many Free Web Space Forums that can boast of 1 million posts either.

Good news! I just checked FreeWebSpace.net tonight and Frihost's rating is now four out of five:
http://www.freewebspace.net/free/Free-webhosting/Frihost/details

Scroll right down to the gray area at the bottom of the page and you will note that Frihost is listed No. 2 of the Top-Rated Freehosts. That means all of the Frihosters who contributed reviews and clicked on the vote button need to be thanked for all of their hard work as their efforts paid off! Well done! Great reviews!

For those who do not know, FreeWebSpace is one of the most consulted Websites for people looking for Free Website Space.

Now if Bondings could just update the details on that page, that would put the cherry right on top of the cake! Very Happy
Ghost Rider103
Wow I never even noticed this.

Just voted. Will write a review later! Not to nag Bondings to update all the info. Lol.

edit: I'm getting a blank page when I try to write a review unfortunately.

I took a look at the site that is #1 top rated and I'm not sure how they are above us. They only have 27 votes and 1 poor review. Frihost has over 50 votes and a couple good reviews. Not making any sense to me.

What's more, that #1 site no longer even exists. Laughing

Edit: Actually I am familiar with the host that cobrands the #1 host, and I have to say that while they offer great features, their servers are significantly slower than Frihost's. They are often completely unusable. (Oh, and I know we aren't supposed to be talking about other hosts here, so I tried not to say too much, but feel free to edit this if I did).

I had that too right in the beginning. Hope that problem is not back again as at the time there was a partial review only and the owner fixed it. Did you register first? Can you try again and let me know what the outcome was? Otherwise I will write to the owner and ask him to check the reviews again.

I have been wondering this since 2006, but why isn't Frihost on here. It's the first result on Google for "free web hosting" and while their reviews and ratings are mostly out of date now, in the past the ratings here were more legitimate (in my honest opinion). I figure at least being mentioned here might help.

I remember asking Bondings about that a while back,i can't remember his reply though,i do agree about that site,it was the first place i looked at when in need of a freehost,at the same time there are so many hosts on there its difficult to know where to start in choosing one.

Awesome we hit the #1 spot.

We went from 57 votes yesterday to 61, so I'm sure that helped us a good amount. The other site barely has any votes so just that little bit for us must have done it.

We'll have to get Bondings to submit Frihost to some more sites like this to hopefully help out. I'm just wondering where he's been...

I think having a Facebook page for Frihost was discussed before and I don't think very many people agreed it would be a good idea so it didn't happen. I personally think it would be an excellent idea.

Frihost is the best out of all webhosting around. Why does one need to switch? lol

I think Frihost is the best out of all because you can design your own website without any problems at all, even hosts don't include cpanel or ftp access, nontheless email for that matter.

I like the fact that you can use this for any website purpose.. It's good for small websites, company websites and such but for hosting files, forget it.. Might as well pay for a for Unlimited Web Hosting plan with another because you ain't going to get that with Frihost at all

Out of all the time I've been with frihost, I give it a 5 star, It has very good staff and everyone tries to help those in need when they need it more.

A new version of the forum software wouldn't really do much for us.

What we really need is a new look. If we had a new look, I'm sure nobody would care about what forum software we are using, since upgrading the forum software wouldn't give the members anything else that our current version offers.

Completely agreed. I don't know when you get the same jolt when by accident you land at the Frihost Website page instead of the log-in page. It really BEGS for a face lift. Even if it is to just delete some of those columns and create some much needed white space. And change the font to a sans serif one like Tahoma or Verdana.

*intrigued*

*visits frihost homepage to look*

It already has been updated!

Sure, it isn't very flashy... but you should have seen the old one. The old homepage definitely reeked of a page that had been abandoned since the 90's.
While this new one has plenty of room for improvement, at least it doesn't look outdated or abandoned.

Really, the only thing I see wrong with it is that it's a little text heavy...
Might be better to add in some eye candy, and replace some of the text with either links to that text or with boxes that pop up when you mouseover them.
Ghost Rider103
The home page was only updated to match the forum style.

The forum style is in fact still outdated. So making the home page look more like the forums doesn't really help the fact that it looks like a design made 5 years ago. Yes it was a change (a positive one of course) but it didn't do much to help make the site look more modern.

In my opinion, the home page is fine and all, but if we want to all make big design changes, the home page and the forum style needs and entire overhaul. There isn't much hope for the current home page in making it look modern.

Bondings makes it quite obvious that he likes the simple/clean style with lighter colors. Which is totally fine, infact that is my preferred style in web design as well. However the current style just needs an overhaul to keep up to date with the rest of the internet.

The sort of style Bondings (i think) prefers can be extremely easy or it can be extremely difficult. Not saying Bondgins doesn't know what he's doing, since he hasn't really done a design overhaul on the site, he's simply modified the same one he's had for years (talking about the forum layout, I know what the old home pages used to look like). The home page was just the forum style modified to fit a home page.

Which is good, since now the home page is pretty much tied into the forum system for the most part. All he needs to do now is re-design the entire thing to look good. It can be done with some time, which I'm sure he's short on.

I could really go on and on with ideas I have, but nobody would really understand unless they see the idea in action. I'm of course not going to create something that Frihost would probably never use, unless I had some sort of go ahead from Bondings to create a design for Frihost, which probably won't happen since he wants to do things on his own. But I'm definitely even here for some ideas, design wise.

Here's one of many websites that use a very clean light colored layout: http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs50/f/2009/294/b/d/design_____by_deviant_bacha.jpg this website has something Frihost doesn't have, contrast. No, we probably don't need the big image box at the top of that web design, but even without that big box, it's 100x better than what we currently have. Not saying we should use this websites look, I'm just throwing out ideas for looks. The forums could be styled to something similar, making one's posting experience that much better (especially mine).

I'll leave the ideas at that. But I'm all for throwing around ideas to help Bondings out and get motivated. I'd do the entire thing myself if he'd let me. Very Happy

edit: ok, one more link with a list of websites that use white as their primary color: http://cssline.com/color/FFFFFF

Maybe Bondings will get the time someday to re-design Frihost. When he does, I honestly think it will boost activity by a good amount.

But back on track to the topic. Do we know of any other good sites like freewebspace that we can vote for Frihost on? Or perhaps know of any other sites we can add Frihost to? This can help more as well.

Freewebspace is the best source there is. Probably best if we concentrate a lot of energy in that direction.

One where you could perhaps be helpful with, since from what I've read you're an expert on Facebook, is to do a Frihost Facebook page. Then get us all to visit it. Maybe you could already incorporate some of your design ideas in a Frihost Facebook page?

Would be great if Bondings could get the Games Forum going as there have been plenty of requests for it. Hopefully we would then see more of IceCreamTruck too. We should probably make a big deal out of it so as to advertise it.

I'd suspect that if it had been Bondings who had created it, that he would have put a notice up somewhere and a link in his signature. I checked it out. Couldn't find any references to it in the Suggestions Forum. Also not clear from the Facebook page who the author was. It was created during September of last year. Does look as though the info is out of date.

I'm not doing too badly for a guy who has never done Facebook before. Am up and running and there are now 132 likes!

Ghost Rider103
Yeah I don't think it was Bondings, if I remember correctly he was either against it or just never commented on the idea of one.

So it was probably a Frihost fan. Which is great. 132 likes is actually a very good amount of clicks. Especially considering it was never announced on Frihost.

Ghost Rider103
Bondings doesn't want someone else to re-design Frihost. He pretty much wants to do everything himself on the site for his own experience.

Someone actually came up with a new design for Frihost a while back, I think he even did some html/css work on it as well.

However Bondings liked it, he kindly declined the design work and said he wanted to do everything himself.

I'm hoping that since he is so busy, that this may convince him to think about delegating some of the tasks. Maybe he could delegate the design to someone like you. If that could happen (I'm wishing very hard right now Very Happy ) then a competition as suggested by mahirh would be a great start. It would also get everyone's involvement from a "bonding" point of view (pardon the pun) and drum up some support in overall.
ocalhoun
Yeah... it would really help if we could overcome that reluctance and have an actual design team to do the work... There are a lot of good suggestions that go undone because it's too much coding for one (busy) person to do.

And really, how many website owners are lucky enough to have a design team willing to work for free?

I totally agree. I think Frihost could easily improve a LOT if we had a small team put together. There are plenty of members here that are more than experienced enough to put together an amazing team. I could recommend a couple amazing programmers that I've known for a long time and have even done some work with them. Two of them being Hogwarts (Tobias) and Fireboar. Both have them have a very large amount of programming knowledge.

We could go a long ways with just even one or two people helping.

I don't know Fireboar, but Hogwarts sounds like a brilliant guy. IceCreamTruck also has great skills. Both Hogwarts and ICT made some suggestions from time to time, and then after a while the suggestions became less and less and I don't see them posting as often as they used to.
Ghost Rider103
Fireboar doesn't come out of the scripting forums much I don't think. He only seems to post when he can help someone out. He's actually been a member of Frihost for as long as I can remember.

Even if Bondings would just let someone do a design mockup and he did all of the code, he would still be getting an exceptional amount of experience and would still be original.

Just one designer I think will help him go a long way much quicker. But if he would allow a small dev team that would be even better.

Right! We need someone for the actual design, but also people with common sense like Ocalhoun for the functional workability and then Hogwarts for the technical stuff. Then hopefully you guys could do regular reports in a "Featured Discussion" so people get a chance to comment as well and become very excited in anticipation of the New Look Website.

I would recommend not wasting your time working on something for frihost unless Bondings gives the ok and chooses a designer(s) and AS programmer if he even decides to do that.

Someone created a whole design for frihost before and it was never used. The guy was a bit frustrated. So really, don't waste your time in hopes it'll be used.

Nope, hardwork always translates into experience and experience is the best teacher, so , i dont care whether it gets used or not, i could always use it as a base for my next design, so, no frustration you see, at the maximum, i would post it to pastebin, make it public domain and keep quiet about it in case bondings doesnt accept it you see Wink

My philosophy too. And well said. No experience ever goes wasted, and it is always great practice.

Just found another Website Review Site that is really easy to post to as there is no pre-registration required. You just make your comments and post them and they are instantly published to the Website:

Another good find. I'm surprised our score isn't a bit higher though.

I've submitted my review and knocked up the rating by .1 which is better than nothing. Let's try to work on this rating now. Smile

I noticed there is a competitor coming up in the top free web hosts, a new one.

On a side note, does anyone else get a warning message when viewing that freewebspace.net site? My anti-virus and internet security pop up with warnings every time I visit the website saying it's infected.

Interesting news, I have not had that experience, but that does not say that it is not there, I'm just not as security aware as you are maybe. Is it possible for you to make a print screen of the pop-up warning, and then I will bring it to the attention of the owner?

Seems to be a different address that is blocked each time. I think it must have something to do with those advertisements.

Though I don't get this very often, so I must say I am a bit iffy about viewing that site.

deanhills
OK thanks! I'm planning to drop in at FreeWebSpace discussion forum this weekend so will be sure to point this out to the owner.

By the way, I've repeatedly let FreeWebSpace know, right from the beginning, that I'm not Staff of Frihost. My mission for posting there is to put Frihost on the map and I was hoping newbies would pick up on my signature too. Bondings is aware of my presence in the Forum and the reason I'm posting there. Recently - when I was in a discussion with Peo (the owner of FreeWebSpace) he again mistook me for the owner of Frihost. I inadvertently broke a rule of posting in one of the Sub-Forums that owners are not allowed to post in. We managed to sort that out, but he now considers me a representative of Frihost and all rules pertaining to owners of FreeWebSpace now apply to me too. I'm now triple careful where I post in the Forum, but positive part of this of course is that people know who Frihost is. I actually like the guy. He is very strict with the application of rules and I'm sure he would be most concerned if there were malicious scripts running through ads in his Free Website Space Directory. So will let him know about this.

not their fault, their advertiser's mistake...

Despite who's fault it is, if it was my site, I would also want to know and would want to know why.

What I don't understand is how an image can be a virus? I can view that image without any problems.
Ghost Rider103
Not sure. But it triggered my eSet security and that thing doesn't hardly ever go off. In fact that's one of the first times it's went off in a long time.

It is possible... if the image was specifically tailored, it might be able to cause an error in the program that displays it... an error that would cause that program to execute code within the image file. With the right code in that spot, you could use that to install a more damaging virus.

And even if it is a virus, your browser might be secure enough to be immune to that particular exploit, while a different browser (say, IE6) might be vulnerable to it.

To make it even more intriguing, there was a glitz on that FreeWebSpace page in that your review was cut after two lines. So of course I used that to tell everyone that you must have said something great and it got lost because of the review being cut after line 2. What happened was that your review was the only one there - two lines of it. The rest was GONE! So I asked FWS if they could fix it. Took quite a while as I think there must have been a bug on that page. Haha .... did you create a script or something as well? (Only joking!)

I did not... Like I said I was having a problem with a staff member at the time and wasn't happy with what was going on. However that staff member has not been here in a while so all is good again.

If we get the posts back up we will be able to get people to stay around. People like forums that are active and that they dont' have to work to find topics to post in. Its also good for frihost because then we can keep our hosting and it won't shut down due to lack of interest.

Right. First we have to wake the sleeping giant however. Maybe a blast from the past is just the right kind of medicine to facilitate it.

Who knows it could work out. Then again I know I'll end up getting busy again and not around that much. This weekend was a pretty easy one for me. From here on out I will be really busy with school and life in general. But I hope other people will be like me and come around and post a bit... or a lot.

Yes sometimes with virus programs that have very large databases it's quite easy to create a false positive but as said above it IS possible. A lot of the time a problem with an image specifically is that the server that the image is hosted on likes to gather statistics on IP location, useage, etc and sometimes they will use UDP for tracking which is considered invasive by some firewalls.

Good to know. Maybe you could ask for a reset to zero in your points in the Support Forum. So you can start earning some coins soon.
