Our old forum is broken and we decided to stop using BoxBilling which managed our free subdomains and forum. Please help us decide what Forum software you think is best. We are willing to purchase a license if needed.
If we missed any paid forum software that rocks let us know!
We are now officially caught up with old transfers and all new transfer requests will take less then 24 hours unless your account is > 100GB. We accept all account sizes larger ones can take up to 48 hours. We have galleries over 250 GB!!!
Our servers are located in Chicago, IL for speedy transfer speeds for everyone. We currently have 2 dedicated servers that we own with TRUE UNLIMITED, no “requests” to increase your space or storage. We allow photos of ANY SIZE. We also have our PHP Memory settings JACKED UP to 200 MB+ on all servers so converting HQ images is no issue with coppermine gallery. Currently we are putting most transfers on our new server “free.fansitehost.com” but we are also putting some on our older server “ido.fansitehost.com” – Currently the “free” server has the higher load and the “ido” server has a very low server load. As we figure out what fansites will need the most bandwidth and storage then we will start moving accounts around to balance the load on both servers and make accounts as fast as possible. If we transfer enough accounts we will even add a third/fourth server or get temporary cloud servers for immediate relief if we do run into any issues. Luckily we just added a brand new server with 30TB of space on RAID 60 setup with maxed out RAM to help us acquire all these transfers!!
If you have scripts that are broken or need dependencies installed we can help! In fact we can help fix any themes or anything really! Just contact us for assistance, we respond to all support requests in under 24 hours, usually within 1 hour if I am awake! The only emails we don’t respond to quickly are adoption requests, they are on hold until FSO Fiasco is all settled!
BEST NEWS OF ALL!!! We will now only require 1 ad per page on all fansites starting October 2nd when we negotiate a better deal on our bandwidth speeds! All new transfers only need 1 ad per page (that can be seen without scrolling) to start with! If questions let us know! SOME fansites that are using over 50 GB of storage space will be asked to put up a 2nd non-intrusive “leaderboard ad” on their gallery intermediate page only, this ad will display BELOW the photo but above the “strip”. If questions or concerns then please let us know.

Lots of new (transfer) fansites will be joining this list soon. Sadly FSO has cpanel transfers blocked so transfers are taking longer then we would like. We are currently MANY other sites and will have them uploaded ASAP. If you need a host for your site contact us and we will help you transfer!
We can get your replacement fansite up and running ASAP! We are almost caught up with the first round of accounts that transferred. We can start transferring yours right now.
We are pulling an all-nighter! We will be available almost 24/7 for the entire weekend so expect FAST REPLIES to all emails! Count on FREE FANSITE HOSTING to get your fansite up and running before FSO shuts down the servers on Monday!!!!
We have lots of experience transferring galleries that are VERY large.
With the announcement that Fan Sites Network is closing we would like to extend a hand to any of their hostee’s. We can provide free hosting for any domain that you own. Just contact us with your URL and we will make an account for you immediately. We can also assist with transferring your account.
Update– We will purchase domains for most fansites in English. Just contact us to find out if your fansite qualifies!
We are happy to announce that our subdomain signup form is back up and running on the Apply page, it is now also Mobile Friendly! We still have not fixed the forums but that is on our to-do list.
We are also proud to announce the availability of THREE new subdomains to choose from. This brings our total to 14 subdomains now! We wanted to bring you the subdomain fan.site but sadly it cost $6000+ per year and we cannot afford it, so we got the next shortest domains available afan.site, efan.site and ifan.site!
