|I have had no problems at all with using this host for my personal web site. Registering was very simple and confirmation by email was immediate. The FTP was straightforward and simple (I use and recommend WS_FTP). I had my 10-page site uploaded in minutes. Since then everything has worked perfectly well as far as the web hosting and FTP use are concerned. I have had experience with 2 other free web hosts with whom I was dissatisfied. I rated beplaced.com a 10 based only on this experience so far which is about 4 months.|
Everything may not be so rosy though. For the past two weeks I have been trying to register another account for my daughter's web site. So far I have not been able to do so. I just keep getting messages saying "sorry, server error." Today I finally sent them an email about this so we'll see what happens.
Two more details: 1.) Their terms of service represent a very strict code of conduct. And 2.) The server is located in Russia. When I received the confirmation email from beplaced.com, it came with a message from Microsoft that the sender's email addressed was spoofed and was not legitimate.

|SHAM! My previous review of 29 Sept is now compromised. My fully-featured website doesnt exist anymore and has been replaced by a commercial search page. After 7 months or after 1500 visits my website is now dead. Although I hope this could be a (temporary) technical problem, I think it was done on purpose to finally earn money on all the bandwith used by my url. Its sad, but it was free! Im moving away and you should do the same before it's too late. Or consider using this server only for a few months.|

|Great webhosting. I have more than 200 MB. FTP with Dreamweaver works like a charm, files dont get lost or misplaced. Funhosts.com = Beplaced.com. |
Reasonable speed although the server is sometimes busy. Used to include ads but then I reported and the ads where tactfully removed. Other service and technical issues remain (new login, i dont have access to administrative rights through website anymore, or the fact that flash.swf files such as movies or flash photo albums are not accepted). EXCELLENT though for big amateur websites.

|This isn't at all a bad webhost. I've never had a problem with FTP, it uploads at a reasonable speed too. No adverts is also a great bonus, although they may implement them in the future. The greatest downfall is the fact that the host tends to be slow for people viewing the page - this is probably some sort of bandwidth limiting measure. All in all, not too bad at all, and I'm happy with it for now.|

|The FTP is a straight mess. I can never get it to work. Then there is the counter on all my pages. I can seem to get rd of it even though I put it on the index page. Im searching for a new web host now.|

|They have deleted my entire HOME DIRECTORY (not only the website!) shortly after signing up & uploading the files... The site was visible for only a few minutes, then everything went away... My login & password still works, but because my home directory is gone, I can't do anything more with this account - can't upload via FTP, can't use their file editor, nothing.|
