5 years of Frihost!




Frihost is now 5 years old! Time seems to go fast and we can already start looking forward to a decade of Frihost. Very Happy

This year will bring free domains. Both as a prize for competitions and with posting. It won't be immediately as I have a lot of stuff to do next month, but it shouldn't take long afterwards I hope.

Congratulations Bondings! Applause Ten years would be an awesome achievement by industry standards.

By the way, it would be great if we could have a follow up of Gurdit's interview with you during 2006, although it would seem this interview has disappeared off the radar screen:
http://tidrug.frihost.net/blog/?p=7
Do you think it is due to the migrations, or just a Website "link that died" problem?
That was a really great interview and it would be awesome if the same questions could be used with updated answers along the lines of "Gurdit Interview with Bondings, four years on"?
deanhills on Tue Apr 27, 2010 3:45 pm
Gurdit probably changed his blog structure. The interview is now on http://gurdit.com/blog/2006/04/05/interview-with-steve-bondings-owner-and-site-admin-frihost/ .

I hope to have a lot of time for Frihost starting from somewhere in July so maybe then. Earlier I have a lot of stuff planned and I would first like to finish the competitions and the free domains first when I find some time.
Bondings on Tue Apr 27, 2010 5:58 pm
Just googled free hosting and frihost is nowhere to be seen on the first few pages (I stopped looking after page 4). Most of those listed ahead of frihost aren't nearly as good.

However it is page one listed for reliable free hosting

@Bondings. Looks as though you have just partially updated Q7 of Gurdit's interview:
Gurdit wrote:
—Q7. What is the future of Frihost? (Where do you realistically see it 5 years down the line, or even 10 years down the line?)
Reply Bondings 2006: 5 years is a century for things on the internet, in 5 years, Google might be gone, in 10 years the internet as we know it today (html-http protocol) might be gone. I can hardly realistically predict more than a few years. I plan to further code a lot of things making Frihost much easier to manage and spend less time on every different part so that the time I have to spend on it doesn’t exponentially grow. If everything is set up, automated and easy to handle, I can dedicate my time to promote Frihost, set up events, contests and also finally continue with other plans and websites for which I don’t have time at the moment.

Q1: If we should ask you where you see Frihost 5 years or 10 years down the line from 2010, would your answer still be the same as four years ago?

Q2: Borrowing from Gurdit's Q5 since it is appropriate for this thread:
Over the last five years, what event about Frihost do you remember with the greatest pride/satisfaction, and what event stands out as the darkest spot in Frihost's history?

Congratulations FRIHost !


p.s. - And today marks my five years here as well.

Congrats Bondings on five years. I hope that Frihost continues to grow and get more users.

It looks like we are growing since we just hit a record with users logged in.

I am at my four year mark which is quite a bit. Smile

I have some questions too, so thought to dig up a thread that was dedicated to you during 2006 to ask them:

Woooooo go Frihost! Go Bondings! Go..internetz? Razz In all seriousness though 5 years is a long time!!!!! Grats!!!

Happy Birthday Frihost!!
kutekitten on Thu Apr 29, 2010 5:46 pm
Congratulations to five years, that's quite a long time!!

It's also a great accomplishment that the original owner is still here and active. Every other big website I have been to, the owner has either sold the website/company to someone else, or has vanished. So that sure is something to be proud of.
Ghost Rider103 on Thu Apr 29, 2010 10:20 pm
Yay! Five years! I'm proud to be a member of such a strong and stable host, that's free! May there be many more years to come Smile Peace

wowfan on Fri Apr 30, 2010 5:36 pm
Dang, that's really incredible. Oh how time flies, and to think I've been here for almost that entire time after my previous host closed their doors and Bondings, started Frihost and asked me to join. I admit I had my doubts that this idea would become financially stable for Bondings, but I guess it must be or 5 years wouldn't have gone by without to many major issues!

Cheers to Bondings and Cheers to Frihost!!!!

That's probably because Bondings didn't created Frihost for the money. Smile

Hooray for Frihost! Dancing But really, congratulations Bondings, it takes a lot of skill to run a site for five years. Well done. Very Happy

Can't wait to see where Frihost will go in the upcoming years. It's easily the best free webhost I've ever used by a long mile.

Let's see what happens in another five years (if the internet exists then Razz )

Wow, this is cool, after looking at the smaple sites, i had to get one!
All of the other free hosting sites have the Pages and stuff like that on the sides, which you couldn't change! I hated that.

Thanks Frihost!!

dazzsser on Sun Aug 15, 2010 10:35 am
It seems that in 8 years time the owner did not get the idea to make this webhost completely free.
zeda on Tue Aug 24, 2010 3:40 pm
Congratulations matey! 10 years on FriHost - really? I didn't realise it was that old.

Super Milestone!!!

I discovered the internet in '95 and it was very different back then - did FriHost offer free web hosting back in '97 then? I find it hard to imagine FriHost being around as long as that and me not noticing and this type of hosting for free back then must have been a redical idea.

Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAX's FriHOst Account (and Irene and Dorothy too apparently Confused )

Make a wish and blow (one of my less successful chat-up lines). Laughing

I love this community and webhost service. Bondings is simply the guy. he's the one i couldn't learn how to have a site without.

Thanks Bondings, administration team, moderators and members!
Da Rossa on Sat Sep 04, 2010 7:02 am
Am a new member registered today. I googled for free host and fortunately for me i was able to see frihost. I have entered the forum, read the rules and regulation and i was happy to remain as a member because am 100% comfortable with the rules. i will always be an active member of the forum and i pray that this site will continue to grow.
uchejohn on Sat Sep 04, 2010 12:12 pm
i understand that this site have existed for five good years. That is very interesting to note. Being a free host site for five years is something worth applauding for. I am very very happy to be a member of this great site and hope to join in enjoyment of the benefits in free hosting. keep it up.
uchejohn on Sat Sep 04, 2010 12:20 pm
I seize this opportunity to thank the administrators of FRIHOST for granting my free host request. I will now be able to enjoy the full benefits of the great site. I remain the most grateful.
uchejohn on Sun Sep 12, 2010 7:29 pm
It is September 14, 2010. So there are another 3,5 months left of 2010. In the start blog the site owner promises that this year there will be free domain names. Taken that seriously and literaly it means that within the next 3,5 months the opportunity to earn a free domain will ge available.
zeda on Tue Sep 14, 2010 4:29 am
FRIHOST is really doing a wonderful job. i appreciate their effort and pray that God will continue to strengthen their effort for many more years to come.
