Free Fansite Hosting News
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!
Free Fansite Hosting turns 6 today! We are one of the longest running Free Fansite Hosts in America and you can be sure we will be around for much longer! During those 6 years we have grown tremendously. Thank You for putting your trust in us & supporting our services!
We look forward to offering some free wordpress/coppermine themes to our hostee’s soon!
The server migration from ido.fansitehost.com to free.fansitehost.com is complete.
If any accounts are having issues please send us an email and we will help you correct any problems.
- 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!
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.
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:
- Clear browser cache
- Clear DNS cache
- Use a different browser
- Use a different ISP (use your phone with wifi off)
- Use a proxy server https://hide.me/en/proxy
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.
The last of the accounts (4 GB and smaller) are being transferred to top.fansitehost.com (subdomains) or fast.fansitehost.com (domains) depending on your site.
Due to the large amount of accounts under 4GB we are asking for your help.
If your site is showing a database error then update your wordpress/coppermine config files to use “localhost” as the SQL server.
If your site has “lost” the last year of updates then don’t worry, just email us and we will fix it!
All accounts on the server free.fansitehost.com are in the process of being migrated to our new server top.fansitehost.com – We will send you an email when your site transfer has started. Once complete your config files should be using “localhost” and not “sql.fansitehost.com”. If your site loses posts for the last year then please let us know and we will move over the correct database.
Once all sites are moved off the free server we will be upgrading it to include SSD hard drives which will make all of our servers SSD Accelerated! This should improve the loading time of all fansites.
Update: A few accounts on the “ido” server will also be transferring to “top” now. At the same time we are transferring a few websites from “fast” to “ido” to assist with load balancing while we re-configure the free server.
