FRIhost - Free Hosting Gem

A little while ago I was working through the Free Hosting Directory at and once again reaffirmed how lucky we are to have a Host like FRIhost. Not too big, not too small. And an owner and staff that really care. There are no real viable alternative free hosts out there that include a Community Forum as well established as this one, covering as wide a range of topics. Nor as interesting characters that we have.

I was following the thread on Server 4 when it went down last week due to unavoidable hacking (hope the hacker's toe nails grow in) and people being anxious that they might have lost some of their data. I'm convinced there could not have been an owner anywhere that had been as attentive as Frihost's had been. Probably doing double duty around the clock. Bondings' years of accumulated specialist knowledge and experience of the free hosting business on the IT end of things must also have helped to get everyone back up in record time. All seems to have been fixed now. Greatest bonus was Bondings posting in some of the Sub-Forums while he was waiting in between. Including seeing him managing all of the posts in the thread with calm and composure all of the time. Great act to follow. Wonder what his reaction was when in the heat of trying to refix the Server his Internet had gone down for two hours. "Oh dear!" or ""Darn!" or my dad's favourite swear words in Dutch when he is up in the dark ceiling trying to fix our geyser (water heater). Twisted Evil

I have only been here for about a month and the server 4 issue was the first time I've had down time with any free hosting ever. But I must say I was awfully impressed with how much information was relayed back to us and how quick it was back up and running. I felt like I was with a paid service.

I was extremely happy with the way Bondings dealt with the issue, and in a way, I am happy this happened as I learned the value of mirror sites and meticulous backing up (I now also have a file transfer program so I don't have to copy and paste each file individually)... So look at the silver lining.

I won't be going anywhere else anywhere soon, and I hope that Frihost is around for a very long time!!
