Is Frihost good for hosting webcomics?





Necrucifer
My friend suggested I join for quality webcomci hosting seeing how Keenspace sucks when it comes to hosting webcomics, even though, that is what they do.

Frihost is good for pretty much whatever you want to put up, as it long as it's not illegal, torrent-related, or irc-related.
Necrucifer
Awesome and I don't intend on torrents, irc, or illegal. Just a place to host my webcomic.

I think frih will do fine hosting your webcomic site, but you need to keep watch of your bandwidth usage, seeing that it only has a 10GB/month limit. I think in the long run, when your webcomic gets more and more viewers (which is obviously your goal), you will be having problems with bandwidth esp with a site heavy on media (images).

I think its best to get a paid hosting plan when your webcomic goes mainstream. But for starters, frihost will do. Smile

10GB is A LOT of bandwidth. You will definitely be set for a looooooong time.

Say each page of your comics were 60KB, you'd have to have over 160,000 page views a month before you even come close to the bandwidth limit. I hope your comic endeavors go well, but it will probably be a long time before you get that popular.
Necrucifer
Yeah, I'm sort of new the the whole webcomic thing. Infact I only plan on updating on the weekends for a start so i doubt bandwidth will be a problem. And I pray that my comic will become popular, but hey, a teen can't ask for everything right?

I'm sure you're site's gonna be nice. i've seen some web comic sites and they're really cool.

But anyway, frihost is a really reliable host, I've had a host before which claims to be reliable, but unfortunately it closed down after a few months of operation. Laughing

Just requested for hosting. All I gotta do now is brush up on my HTML coding. Fortunately I'm taking a web design class in school, but it's still not enough. Time to go look at other webcomics HTML source codes and skim through my web design book. This is going to take a while. -_-;;

Seriously - even paid plans that cost over $30 a month only give you 10GB of bandwidth. I think Frihost is great!

My friend has a web comic... He used imageshak hosting.

You may want to host your images somewhere else (like imageshak) as my friend did to save frihost some bandwidth.

whats the link to your comic page?

you're gunna get a lot of hits from this forum alone probably.

not enough to worry about 10 gb of bandwith though.
Necrucifer
The comic isnt quite up yet, but the page is coming along smoothly, Im' working on it every day, and I have an awsome staff for this.

enjoy: http://stereotypicallyincorrect.frih.net/


note: the page is still in it's beta stages, so keep in mind that the staff and I are working every day to expand and add on to the site. Smile

I like your website simple but cool.
I look forward to your comics. I hope they don't contain heavy language. Wink

FriHost will be perfect for your needs, I'm sure.

I've had FriHost for some time now, hosting my website, and they have never let me down at all no matter what. I run a phpBB forum on my website, and it uses approximately less than 600MB a month on bandwidth with like 15 users accessing it. I think you'll be fine with FriHost for a long time to come.
