It's from fried rice. The founder loves fried rice, then he decided to call it FriHost.

We've been through this so many times...

FRIH = Free Reliable Internet Host

pronounced "free" (not german though and most people pronounce it "fry")

Surely if you called it fry, you'd feel an idiot calling the money system fries. A potential Frihost joke:

'Need someone to design an avatar for me, will offer 100 fries for it, McDonalds or KFC, your choice'.

I've always called them Frees, and never really thought they be called anything different. Didn't realise how naive i really am Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

It's just another way of spelling free - Frihost - it also stands out more and stays in your mind. It's good advertising if you ask me. Because you know there's a difference in spelling, you won't make the mistake... and you'll remember it!

It is an awesome host though!! Very Happy

Well it means free in swedish.

Yeah, but buying something with "frees" is just ironic. Razz

ahhh... I didn't know that it was an acronym for free reliable internet host... i always just figured that the domain "freehost.com" was taken so they purposely changed the spelling of "free."

Ha ha ha, I never thought of that. That should be Frihost's slogan:

Frihost - buying stuff with frees

Lol, yeah i can vouch for that. I've always pronounced it as fry-host, personally i think it sounds alot cooler xD.

If i remember correctly, i think a few months, or a year back, there was a thread on here asking how people pronounce it. Whether they pronounce it free or fry.

lol that was basicaly my thought on it as well.

Wow... this is an interesting topic... I also thought that it was another wording for "free" and that because "freehost.com" has already been taken...

Was wondering... what if we are all right? It could be another wording for "free", "freehost" already taken, and that it is an acronym for "Free Reliable Internet"... What a strategic naming! 0.0

Anyway seems like we are mostly speculating... is there anyone or anywhere we can find the true meaning of the name? Maybe from Bondings himself? =X
crimson_aria
wow, I didn't about 'fri' as Free Reliable Internet too. all this time i thought it's just 'free' shortened. nice one.

Fri sounds as "free" ,i guess and make it a blind shot that freehost.com might have been booked so they decided to purchase frihost.com!! , and owner and mod can better comment if this true coz it appears to be the case in my view...
guissmo
Oh. I didn't know FRI was even an acronym. Cool info.
Rajiev

I always thought it was just a fancy way of spelling "free". But the second post finally explains it... I never really thought about it that much Laughing
achowles
There was me thinking that it was just a variation of "free". Learn something new...
