Wow, very bad tech support and slow downs. Recommended ONLY if you are using FrontPage or something that creates web pages for you without HTML!

don't do it! I don't know much about html, but I can follow directions. Netfirms promised an easy website, up in minutes! I purchased (paid for) my website with them and it's the end of Sept. and I still can't get a decent site on-line. Right now the site is on but the headers and photos are scrambled, which defeats the purpose of being online. They also promise 24/7 tech support, which is actually non-existent. They have lots of tutorials, but if it doesn't answer your specific question you are messed up. They don't answer e-mails and their phone number doesn't seem to work. I guess I'm just out the money I spent since I haven't found a way to contact them. Not recommended for complete newbies who don't know anything about HTML or web authoring.

Netfirms is the worst! They suck you in and then hijack your site. If you go over your daily limit they cut you off. Funny...their user agreement doesn't say that. It say you have to upgrade or reduce your usage. I've got a register domain with them. I doubt I ever see it again. AVOID NETFIRMS!

Excellent uptime record. Well featured and a useful FAQ.
A bit iffy with SWF files at the moment though. (Could just be me).

i found out that the file size is 256 kbs AFTER i got my site finnally working (from my computer nothing to do with netfirms). The banner at the top is really anoying. Service is good. if your one of those people who put large files on there site STAY AWAY! 25 mb is nothing really, 99.0 the sever is up no real downtime. for 6 months now its been good UNTILL THE FILE ISSUE! Easy to send through frontpage. Wouldnt recommend it. (maybe for starters). join for small stuff like pics or small flash videos but nothing else like large downloads.

file size is limite to 256K very very very small. This is only one drawback.

I built a website on Netfirms, and they turned out to be very easy to use. It was on this server that I first learned how to use an FTP system to upload files, and it worked out very well. I'd recommend them, as they can make a good server on which to build both personal and business websites. It's good.

And yet another free web host to add to the growing list of those who either do not respond to your emails and/or fail to complete the sign-up process. In this situation, I was sent an invoice indicating that I had indeed opened a free account with NetFirms but I never received a username or password in order to actually USE my free web space. Repeated follow-up emails inquiring to this effect were not answered. And just for posterity, I would like to add that I used a 'real' email address to sign up with them and moreover I am the webmaster of a reputable site about web design. I don't understand why my account was apparently activated but no username or password was subsequently issued. Netfirms WASTED MY TIME. TWO THUMBS DOWN.
