I bet none of you have ever pronounced the word "frihost", because "frihost" is only used at Frihost, and we just type it out.
seriously, if anyone ask you what webhosting are you using, how will you pronounce it?
well, I pronounce>>
I am not sure what the actual pronunciation is. I am also unable to pronounce ˈfraɪhəust. May be there is an audio file waiting to be created for this pronunciation.
I pronounce it as "FreeHost" with a short and quick free
I pronounce like "free host"
I have been pronouncing 'fry host' but I like 'free host'.
I've always been Fry Host as well, the only other thought I ever had was Fri as in Fridge and I wasn't drawn to that!
Good topic, I've never heard the official brand pronunciation, maybe Bondings will share it here.
we would pronounce it freehojst... Hm, hehe a bit funny when you looka at it!
I pronounce it as "freehost" for the same reason as Marcuzzo and others mentioned.; in a lot of languages the "i" is pronounced as "ee", including Dutch.
Of course when I chose the name Frihost, I was aware that a lot of people would pronounce it as "fryhost".
I would say it like Friday or fry host. Though like others have said free host does make sense.
oops, I forgot to hide it.
English to english doesn't work. So I chose german -> english. But fritzhest doesn't resemble the german or english pronunciation. When I chose english -> german it correctly (more or less) pronuounces it "freeost" (omitting the h)
I met some people who act impolite to other races or nations before,
so I think the best way is not to draw their attention.
I don't know what actual pronunciation will be but I am habituated to call it 'Fri' and 'host'
I don't like the pronunciation "free host". But I'll use the official pronunciation from now onwards.
indonesian people will pronounce it "free host"
wee spell i as ee, not as ay
I've always pronounced it "fry-host" but I think there was a thread like this a while back that clarified it was actually pronounced "free host". I personally like "fry-host" better and it's quite hard for me to switch.
Either way, I don't hardly ever have to pronounce it anyways.
