This forum was created for news and support while the Frihost and FFS Forums were down and Server 1 with the Forum hosting accounts on it was still up and running. The ending was obviously predictable, but it's still sad news when Frihost Server 1 finally came to an end on Valentines Day - 14 February 2019.

Our heartfelt thanks to Bondings for supporting us for a very long time with providing free hosting to those who could not afford it, long after he stopped being involved with Frihost. Not only did he continue to provide free hosting, but the hosting was of the best quality ever on a 5-star cpanel server with Hetzner. Specs were enormous and for the period January 2015 to 14 February 2019 we rarely had a down time on the server. We're sad Bondings stopped communicating with us, but wish him the best wherever he is and with whatever projects he is involved with.

For those who are curious about the last days of Frihost - here's a blog article I wrote at Gigarocket.net:

Please prepare for possible end of Frihost Server 1 - End of December 2018

Hope all our Frihost members are doing well. Server 1 with our hosting accounts (Frihost and FFS) is still in good shape, however there is good reason to believe that the server may not continue beyond the end of this month. So for those who still have active hosting accounts on Server 1, we recomme...

Re: Is any body there

Not sure whether I'm the right person either Peter. Still no communication from Bondings. Hopefully members who still have hosting accounts on Server 1 have made backups. There is a large percentage possibility that the Server will be discontinued after the end of this year: 1. End of December is re...

Re: Roll Call

Hi @deanhills, good to see you here again. I signed up at gigarocket, and will probably set up a website there. Interestingly enough, post4vps is suspended at the moment. I may check them again to see if it's just temporary, but I don't think I should get a vps there in any case, since I likely wil...

Re: Roll Call

Hi I'm here. Sorry it's been a while. Got some personal things to attend to. How's everybody doing? Nice that you are still checking in at frihost @jestoy. I've also been away for a few weeks. I'm not sure whether we'll still have hosting after December, so suggest if you are into post 4 free hosti...

Re: frihost.net domain

Still down, and no new word, after such a long time. I miss frihost, it has outlived most of its competitors and it's sad if it has permanently disappeared. I am glad to hear that many member web sites are still up. As long as that is the case, the success continues. I feel the same. Feels as thoug...

Re: Change my Primary Domain Name

Dean , so my question is , Can I just point the A record rather than changing name servers. When I change name servers , I lost control on my other records like Mx records or sub domain records , and probably need to manage them elsewhere , which is a little cumbersome. Hence I was hoping that I co...

Re: Change my Primary Domain Name

I checked and the name servers of your new domain are not Frihost name servers. Looks like GoDaddy name servers. You won't be able to access cpanel if you haven't added Frihost's name servers so the domain can point to your hosting account at Frihost - kind of logical, but maybe this is your first e...

Re: Hosting a Backup

I have not imported the permlinks twice. Not sure about that step. I just imported the file that was created form All in one WP migration backup Maybe you're not reading the instructions from the plugin that comes up every time after you have imported a backup. It says you need to save the permalin...
