|At first I was annoyed by some of the limits like the amount of pages I could have. So I went looking for other hosts. WOW! The others hosts stink compared to freewebs.|
Freewebs offer templates that most think they do, but probably don't know much about making a site look good. The file size limits of other hosts really stink, while freewebs allowed me at least 1Mb (I wouldn't mind more, but hey, its free).
I also noticed that many hosts have the worst, most confusing site builders. I don't think I have come across an easier site builder than freewebs.
And I also wasn't sure if I would get good support from freewebs since they don't have phone service, but they actually helped add things on my site I didn't understand at first.

|Despite some limitations, I really like freewebs. Before I created a site I had absolutely no knowledge of web design. The limits are irksome, but the premium services are really cheap! I'm planning on getting the Webs Unlimited thing.|

|Ok, i started using freewebs in about august of '03 for a community project, not for profit etc etc.|
Positives: free, advanced web available (i can upload what i want and how i want not WYSIWYG premade template junk) and it has a short member subdomain url (www.freewebs.com/username).
Negatives: yeah the 50 file limit was a bit annoying, as its a tad difficult to appeciate just how many files go into making a nice looking site. In the end i did what another reviewer did, signed up for two accounts and crosslinked them, (its not mentioned as a no-no in their fair use agreement, not that i exploit things like this ;oP)
Up until about 5 minutes ago i "believed" it to have been running fairly well, last time i looked at the site was back in May as i no longer make updates. But for no reason my index.htm on my second site no longer "works" all the code is there but it displays it as a blank...not good seeing as its a main page. it also contains all the frame information for the entire site! grrr.
I then tried to upload another version of the index.htm file it just bugged out and did nothing...zippo...i tried a few other links on their main site and member area and nothing works...including the help area. So now i don't want to delete the files because i can't upload a new version.
I haven't had any need to contact support before now, and now the links aren't working on their site.
I have given it a rating of 4/10 as it was ok, and i put up with the single file upload (it took me nearly three hours to upload 100 files over two sites), but this latest debarkle is very frustrating and thus its lost about 3 points. Also i have found that google won't accept freewebs sites into their database which is a pain for community information sites like the one i created.

|i have been on this hosting for a little while now (6+ months) and it is REALLY bad in my opinion. |
good: they have a WYSIWYG mode for people without prior knowledge. *tires to think of anything more*
bad: lets start with the BIGGEST PROBLEM: a 7-page limit. all free hosters i've been to NEVER have this, and it is ANNOYING! also, they have a file limit and a size limit. and costimer service? lemme give you some perspective: i sent in a question when i first started, and i NEVER got a reply. i've sent in questions many times before and have never gotten replies.
overall: i would NEVER suggest this site to ANYONE, and if you are thinking of it, RECONSIDER.

|Overall, freewebs has been good. I don't know any HTML, so it was easy to make a site - and free. Site showed up on Google and other search engines after I submitted it. BUT: I'm bummed about the file limits and whats worse, several of my site's pages went "blank". I had downloads for some games I made on them and also some information and links. Nothing that would seem to violate any rules. But someone or something just deleted them. It would take quite a while to reconstruct and that's not cool.|

|Not a bad site for simple websites. Only complaint is that if there is one thing wrong on a page, you get the 404 error saying could not display page and then about 3 popups appear for advertisements. Very difficult to figure out what went wrong. Simple things like putting a single quote in a title or using characters other than English. Otherwise, pleased with simplicity and attempt to make personal websites.|

|Hi, well I started using Freewebs as a web host about 5 months ago when I found Geocities a bit too complicated. At first I thought wow it's so easy, but then after I tryed putting in some html codes (how they showed it in their tutorials) and it didnt work. I dont know if it just happens to me or there is something wrong with the codes, but i was very dissapointed. I really have no trouble with the seven page limit because I dont really need more than that. |
Another thing that I dont like is that the chat room addon doesn't work for me! It works for some of my friends but not for others. I haven't contacted them yet (I will do so today) and I hope to get an answer. Also their file upload is horrible (& it's not my comp because it's brand new). I have tried to upload many times a background but it never works.
So for an over all conclusion Freewebs is a great host for beggginers who know no html or any thing like that and just want a very very very simple site. But I wouldn't recomend it to anyone who wants a more profesional looking site. Even tho it has all these problems it's still great because it's free and alltho I wish i was better I want to thank them because for a free web hosting site its not so bad, and it's one of the simplest to work with out there!

|This is in response to the post marked ***2003-02-07 - (IP: 206.148.x.x)***:|
I have also contacted them, but for different (and more urgent) reasons. One of their users is guilty of defamation and copyright infringement, and I have gone through their abuse link 2x, through their contact info, and now through the whois look-up as well. I, also, telephoned them, but their machine does not accept messages at this point. If anyone finds the contact information (before I post it here), please let me know.

|This site is great. The only bad part is the 50 file limit. Other than that, there is absolutely nothing bad about Freewebs.|
