TOTAL waste of time. Create accounts and then keeps on denying login in their control panel, denying in ftp. After so many tries over a day created another account and same results. There are lot of posts in their forum for 'Can't login'. For posting in forum, I created a forum user name and it said validation email is sent to given email account. It never arrived. Are they just collecting email accounts or what ? Why waste people's time ? Why don't correct your login problems ? Even their main URL ( is down a LOT. You can understand what will happen to subdomains if they cant keep their own site up. FIND SOMEBODY ELSE. See their forums if you don't agree with what I said.

This is a terrible host. I went on to it and i clicked sign up, it said you have been directed here by error. then, i went back on the next day, and it said " is a bit crowded now. Try creating a * or a * account instead." that is exactly what the other reviwers said. it isnt that good at all :-(

Wasn't able to sign up.  Tried three times to get past the user creation screen and three times was forced back to an empty form where I had to fill out the fields again. The third time it said "the freehost server is a bit busy, try instead. I gave up!

this host is pretty good.  Sure there is some down times, and the forced ads are pretty annoying...but its ok.  I would say to best host is they take out the forced ads and the amount of visitors a day thing.  One best thing about this is the space they give you and the bandwidth!

the site is good, and it also allows you to host mp3, if people would go on the forum and read the other people posts, they would find some of their questions answered; don't complain about this service, since it tells you that it will be down due to upgrades, don't post here telling everyone "oh its down for half of the day" well daa it is because of the server uprades, they tell you everything in the forum, and if you complain because your website is down explain, because some dumb people overload mysql so everyone gets the problem, and also this host is working on its development, so if you use its service don't complain about it, like I lent you something to borrow and you would complain of it is bad, you don't pay a cent for it so why do people just compain about it, it gives you oppertuninity to test out something that cost like at the minimus of $20 a month and even if you are paying for it the paid host gives you like 500 meg space and 500 meg bandwith but they gurantee 100% uptime. In average this site is pretty good, and it not that slow, and you can control the banner add in your site.

It just wonderful when you install the prescript, but as you know we will install some extra things such as upgrading the php, so... it always has the problem: error, error, and error. For example, 403 permission error.
Anyway, attractive 2000 MB

Asked for an account... it took like, 4 days for the confirmation e-mail to arrive. By the time it arrived, the account was already facing deletion problems, because you must have their google ad up and working. Then, I get the login info, and the Username/Password doesn't even work. I tried e-mailing the admin, but their mails take like, 2000 days to arrive. And I tried signing up at the forums, but the activation code never arrives.

Great hosting plan.. but garbage support.

Under the current plan you get 2000 megs of space, 1000 mysql databases, plus a goodly amount of bandwith. You get Ensim Pro, over 1000 subdomains, users, and e-mail accounts, and a great help forum. If you have a personal page out there that needs a host (or a very small budget business) this is where to go!

Please DON'T TRUST this host, they may seem to be good with the features they offer, but they REALLY AREN'T good. First, they have lots of downtimes, and i don't know what kind of insane money they want to do asking for 2 views of your page everyday. It may seem to be easy on the first days, but come to think of it, will you visit your site everyday? Are you sure nothing can happen that prevents you from accessing the internet? Do you really think you'll get people everyday to view your site? And believe, 9 March was the day i didn't received any page view, and i received an email on 10 March warning me about that, and after reading the email i tryied to access my site and know what? It was completely removed!  It was already boring, their server is allways down, MySql doesn't seem to work, and THEY ARE USING POP-UPS NOW! There are many hosts, please search well, don't give away clicks and page views just to make money for these guys, they seem to have obssessions for money with their pathetic ad policy.

I have been building 2 websites on this host and experienced very bad services. Server was down on regular basis, usually in midnight, my site information was corrupted 2 times within one month and they abruptly removed them without any reason or warning. One time they were down for 48 hours and every bit of my two accounts were lost. If you plan to do any serious work, NEVER turn to this host. Their lousy services outweighs anything they promise.

TheFreeServer - What a nice name for a free host, sure having a domain is better than having So shall we start the review and see what the free server has to offer!

1. The features
TheFreeServer offers excellent web hosting features such as: CGI, PHP, SSI, Perl and MySQL. It allows you to have 80MB of disk space and has a bandwith limit of 3 gigabytes each month. It also has an Ensim panel wich allows you a quick and easy access to administrate your website, install new components and maintain your website. To upload your site you can use FTP or upload it using the Ensim browser interface. Please note that sometimes I notice the downtime of the Ensim panel, your site is online but administration doesn't work...

2. Speed
Ah the technology! We've gone from 66mhz to super servers but it seems that TheFreeServer hosts mayby, oh, a hundred of websites on some, oh, slow server. To make a speed comparison, I am going to make my server versus TheFreeServer: PHP rendering of the SAME php page on my server takes 0,7 seconds and it takes almost 3 seconds on TheFreeServer... I'm starting to wonder that maybe it's not for nothing that they are called TheFreeServer and not TheFreeServers.

3. Reliability
Reliability seems very strange on the TheFreeServer... Sometimes my website runs a whole week without a downtime and sometimes I notice downtimes during the night. Reliability seems the weekness of TheFreeServer.

4. Conclusion
I'm giving it a 6 out of 10... Why? Reliability made the rating go down of two points and the lack of disk and bandwith also took away another 2 points out of my rating. In conclusion, if you want to have a nice personnal website with some CGI, PHP, SSI, Perl or MySQL features, then go for TheFreeServer.

You have to sign up for two affiliates and enter a word from a phase that is displayed when you do so.

The first one ( gives a different phrase from what TheFreeServers requests - but it's guessable.

Other than that it's instant access. Looks good so far.
