Please be aware that we are needing to be more selective on giving out free domains due to the amount of fansites that request them and never do much with them. You can find details on the Apply page.
Free Fansite Hosting News
Happy New Year!
We will be on vacation for the next week returning on January 20th. Support/Domain requests will be unavailable during this time. Please be patient waiting for a reply during this time!
The following rule has been added to our terms of service. If your site is currently breaking this new rule then please fix it so it complies.
- You are not allowed to add an “alias” domain to domains we own. If you purchase an additional domain the ONLY way that is acceptable is if you forward your domain to ours. Alias domains create “duplicate websites” which is a very bad thing in the eyes of Google. If you want to own your domain then you should NOT ask us for a free one or adopt one we own!
If questions let us know!
Fansite.Host is now open again! Check out fansite hosting simplified! Unlimited Hosting for 1 site only $5/month. Unlimited Hosting for all of your websites for only $10/month or $90/year.
Fansite.Host uses the exact same server as freefansitehosting.com free.fansitehost.com and has a remote SQL server with SSD Hard Drives.
FansiteHost.com uses the server fast.fansitehost.com which is a faster server with fewer accounts and SSD hard drives for the OS & Databases.
Soon we will be launching a 3rd website hosting service that offers “100% Pure SSD” Hosting which means all files on your account are stored on SSD Drives!
Each of our hosting services comes with personal fast support. Please remember that not all servers or hosting services are equal. You get what you pay for so you can obviously expect faster load times when using fansitehost.com compared to fansite.host for your sites, our SSD service will be the fastest of the 3 once it launches but prices will reflect that.
If questions please contact us!
Many of your already received an email but here is more information on what to do:
Config files need changed to use 22.214.171.124 instead of localhost in all config files.
WordPress config file is in the public_html directory usually and is called wp-config.php
Copperming config file is in /public_html/GALLERY/includes/config.inc.php
After you make the change if you receive a database access error when loading your site then you need to use cPanel’s “MySQL Databases” to delete your user (at bottom of page) and then re-create the user with the same password (in your config file) and then add the privileges to your database. For some reason all of the users didn’t import correctly so some accounts will have this extra step.
If you need help just ask me. It is important to update these settings before updating your site!
We are proud to announce that the ido.fansitehost.com server is now back online with SSD Hard Drives running the OS and all databases. As of 12 CST we copied all account’s databases from the free.fansitehost.com server to the ido.fansitehost.com server. This took about 2 hours so if you made updates between 12:00 AM CST and 2:00 AM CST (on free server) then you will likely have to redo your posts/uploads. Only the databases were affected during the move so any files you uploaded are still safe on the server. If any sites are having database issues since the transfer then please contact us and we will get you all fixed.
This Officially makes all FFH servers use SSD Hard Drives for faster MySQL responses! This will also free up the “old-school” hard disk drives from having to process SQL requests, which means all image/file downloads should be speedier along with Faster FTP & Cpanel!
Currently the free server has (12) 4 TB Hard Drives hosting your files and the ido server has (2) 480 GB SSD’s hosting your databases! The ido server also has 2 TB of disk space available for some of our users that have busier sites. We will start transferring a few sites to the server later this week, we will let you know if your account will be moved by email.
Also when we get the time we will be releasing some PURE SSD Hosting accounts at fansitehost.com – These packages will be very limited and will cost more then you are used to when compared to our Hybrid SSD/Hard Disk Setup that we currently sell. We will have approximately 400 GB of space for “Pure SSD Hosting” so watch for our announcement if you want to try it out!
PS- Memory was also upgraded from 16 GB to 64 GB on the ido.fansitehost.com server!
Be sure to check out all the new plans we have at fansitehost.com – For as low as $1/month you can have a Cpanel WHM Reseller account that will allow you to create as many cPanel accounts as you want!
We have plans that are competitive with all hosts!

Be sure to read the newest Tutorial on our forums to help your fansite load faster. This is very important for fansites the larger & busier they get! Remember the less plugins you use the better in terms of your website loading speed.
