Who I am, My Questions and Any Website Tips?





savvysundea
Hello I am Savvy, I am planning to make a website but I haven't found any nice free providers but I eventually found this from searching for a long unproductive time and I am please of what I found. Very Happy. I am planning to make a website mainly for my Art, I know my videos won't be allowed since they probably copyrighted materials. Any tips on this? I don't understand it fully but are you allowed to link to external video hosting sites? I am also planning on making some music like midi files and nature recordings, tutorials for software as well as a blog. If I host a few music files I created what would the legal.txt look look and anything else I should know.

Host your videos on youtube and then embed them into your frihost website.

Welcome to Frihost Savvy!

I'm sure linking to outside Videos would be OK like Truespeed explained. Every one does it all the time.

Check out the TOS. And particularly this rule:
Quote:
MP3 and other music files are forbidden on our servers. Some exceptions might be made for self-made music hosted in one directory together with a legal.txt file explaining that the music files are completely legal. A written permission from an administrator is necessary prior to uploading the files. Remixes aren't considered as self-made music.


Would probably be good to study all of the TOS though and if you have any doubts, check with the Administrator in the Website Support Sub-Forum:
