Great Host. Great Help when you need it. Netfirms is the best free host ever. And you can cover up the banner if you are good at making sites. Look at and see how i have covered up the banner.

Very good, i always start with their free plan and then upgrade, CGI is limited but you should note that they don't have a choice, CGI is heavy so they limit the usage in a very fair way, their servers are very fast and they use a very fast connection to the internet, they even have professional support for free users, what is also important is that they have good plans to upgrade to. Thay also have catch all Email and a pop address for a free website, and you could ad domain names ! come on people be fair.

This is a very good service. The best thing on this service is 24/7 support they really answer your questions and solve your problems. The worst thing on this service is banner ads of course.

Many site rated netfirms highly and as a result I registered with netfirms and used it for the last 4 months. I can see netfirms was a great free host once but they had switch gear to concentrate more on pay user.

Basically they are a very basic host the CGI and SSI is only good for occasional testing. If you use cgi or ssi frequently it can make your website look ugly because it keep showing a page that ask your visitor to return 5 minutes later and telling them you are a cheap skate and did not pay them any money :D

However, netfirms is not all bad, their FTP is very fast and dependable, their website never down and your website is always reachable. Their support FAQ is first class. I never need to contact them because of their FAQ. Netfirms control panel is simple and easy to use and it get the job done.

Supported file type are limited, only the basic one are allow. You can't hotlink from netfirms but you can hotlink to them from other web host!

If you are looking for a basic web hosts with 25MB space and you don't need php, cgi, perl or ssi netfirms is highly recommened.

I will rate netfirms as;
cgi and perl 3
ssi 3
Dependable 8 (will be 10 if not for cgi and ssi)
FTP 10
Help and FAQ 10
control panel 8
files support 5
Speed 9

average 7

One in the top 10.
Easy to use, reliable.
Perfect for beginner and modest size sites.
banner at top of page is not bandwidth hungry.

Up until recently, they were very good. However, over the past couple months, they seem to be putting the squeeze on free customers to upgrade to a paid service. They do this by severely limiting cgi usage for free site. I have a message board on my site which has been rendered basically unusable now. That's why I'm searching for a new site.

I registered with them about two months ago. The one time I needed help, the response was quick. I will definitely recommend this free host to anyone! Great host...Keep up the good work!

I just signed on the other day and everything has gone as smooth as silk. For a free site, NetFirms is a 10 all the way; even better than some of the big name paid hosts I've had in the past. Way to go, folks. Keep up the great work and I'll be hanging around for a long time.

Very good site, especially the cgi part. Banner on top is fair enough since this is a free hosting. I've been using this for more than a year and also have several sites in it. Support is also good.
