Free Fansite Hosting News

Keep our ads up to follow new rules!

Due to falling ad revenue we are now requiring accounts meet certain requirements to be hosted for free.

FREE DOMAINS (that we pay for) must now get 20 unique visitors DAILY. If your site doesn’t receive that many visitors then you will need to purchase the domain from us, or if you cannot afford it you may be able to sponsor it for $6/year if you receive at least 5 unique visitors daily. If you still can’t afford it your site/domain will be converted to a subdomain, sold or deleted. We will contact you prior to making the decision.

SUBDOMAINS/ALL ACCOUNTS over 1GB must now get 30 unique visitors MONTHLY in order to remain active. Accounts that do not have any visitors will be removed. This means galleries that don’t have visitors will be removed. We will warn accounts with domains before deleting accounts, old subdomains will not receive any warnings. New subdomains are exempt from this rule for the first 6 months.

Anyone is more then welcome to upgrade to our paid hosting services at fansitehost.com, fansite.host & fanhost.net if they do not like these new rules. The $5 unlimited hosting at fansitehost.com is 50% off with the coupon code FFH *offer only valid for free accounts converting to paid hosting.

UNIQUE VISITORS are determined by Google Analytics code inside our ads. So if your account doesn’t have our ads up then your visitors are not getting counted!

Otherwise look forward to a new website design coming soon. We will also have a new section for hostee’s to put “Site Updates” on our front page!

Check out our new hosting plans at FanHost.Net & TheFanHost.com

TheFanHost.com is now offing 100% free hosting plans with no advertisements up to 30 GB! We are supporting this free hosting with Backlinks & Crypto Currency Mining which will have a much smaller impact on your visitors then banner advertisements ever have.

FanHost.net is the “sister host” of TheFanHost.com as it offers “very affordable” UNLIMITED Hosting starting at only $1. FanHost.net also offers 25%-75% off paid hosting prices if you use our Backlinks and/or the Crypto Currency Mining! This brings the starting price of Unlimited hosting down to $.25/mo.

Both services offer a smaller limit for Cloud Linux CPU, Memory, Users & Processes then FreeFansiteHosting.com & FansiteHost.com does. This is how we can afford to offer these free/cheap services. Of course this means some sites may be too busy for the plans we offer.

Just finished designing the site so let me know if any major typos/errors or questions!

Server Migration Updates

  • The Migration of accounts from “ido to “free” is going nicely. Accounts still on the ido server may experience downtime as we transfer the remaining accounts to free.
  • A very small percentage of the sites we transferred to the “fast.fansitehost.com” server lost database updates for the last year. If this happened to your site please contact us and we will fix it as we do have the correct database to correct your site with.
  • Almost all accounts transferred to the fast.fansitehost.com server during the transfer process may be having database errors. If this is happening to your site it could be due to a couple reasons, please send us an email and we will fix it.

Questions, Concerns? Just shoot us an email!

Migration Update

All sites on the server ido.fansitehost.com are in the process of being transferred to free.fansitehost.com – This will be the last move for these accounts as we finish up the first part of our server migration.

Next we will be moving “some” select sites off of the server “top” & “fast” and moving them back to “free” now that the upgrades are completed. If anyone has problems with a site then please email us and we will fix the problem.


Please be aware if your site is being transferred that we recommend you use the server address for FTP to ensure you are connected to the proper server. Once connected to the proper server make an update to your theme so when you visit your site you can see if it is loading the “new” or “old” server. DNS updates should only take 12 hours, but they can take up to 72 hours or even longer if your browser or dns cache keeps them around.


UPDATE: 10/9-The server ido.fansitehost.com may be up/down while we finish the migration to the free.fansitehost.com server.

Server Upgrades Update

We are currently on schedule to have the upgrades complete on free.fansitehost.com sometime Friday! Hopefully we can get everything setup on the server by Saturday. That means Saturday Night or Sunday we should start transferring “some” sites back to the server.Most sites will stay on the server they are on now, but some will be moved back to free once the upgrade is complete to help with server loads/speeds.

Until then the servers “top” & “fast” may experience slower then normal responses due to them holding more accounts then we’d prefer while we upgrade the “free” server. Once we start transferring sites back to “free” performance will increase, please bare with us during this growing phase.


On a side note – Due to the server transfers some people are dealing with “DNS Cache Issues” – Things you can try:

We recommend using the server address to connect with FTP. So top.fansitehost.com – fast.fansitehost.com or ido.fansitehost.com depending on your server.
