Free2host.co.uk - where did it go?
I noticed for the past few days free2host.co.uk disappeared, and then it came back today with just an Apache directory listing. Where did it go, and will it come back?

Well it either...
- Moved Servers
- Got suspended and moved servers
- Got it's acount terminated and moved servers
- or just started over...
May they dont want to continue their service..
Seems the closed there operation.
My only advice would be wait and see. If there's an Apache directory listing there, they could be in the process of rebuilding the site.
Apologies folks, here is what happened.
We have run the service for many years without a glitch. Last month I decided that after many years as wise1host it would be better if we had a more appropriate name, I found free2host.co.uk, registered it and we set about branding to this name. Then we get a cease and desist from someone claiming to own the name. They complain to the DC and the registrar and the registrar put the domain in dispute, what an absolute carry on. I wish I had just stuck to the previous name it lasted many years without any of this....
Anyway, we sorted it, crock of old s**t to be frank.
Site is back up and running as free2host.co.uk.
We had 4 or 5 customers who lost sites when this happened, if this was either of you see this post
Thanks and apologies for not getting over here sooner.
Just for info:
We have now setup the hosting as follows
Our sites are in the Bluesquare DC in Maidenhead
Our UK customer server is in 4D-DC data centre in surrey
Our US customers server is in Renton, VA
Our VPS server is in Hetzners DC-11 in Germany
Bottom line, they are all in different places to prevent both our site and yours going down should we experience any technical issues.

Add to your post that you reject signups to those who have hosting elsewhere (phew what a bad policy IMHO)
Spam? What do you mean by spam? I need free host!
My personal Phrase.
Please don't lie, you're not allowed to!
I'm looking for a sponsored KVM VPS, but I'm not in a hurry. Just want to hear what you might offer to me.
Where does it say that? We have no such policy. We have over 200 active accounts and I am sure at least some of them have hosting at other places. Please do not post negatives comments about our service just becuase we rejected you. We check all users who sign up, if we do not like what we are seeing then they dont get in.
It's a free service and we choose who gets to use it. If you do not get accepted move on. You in particular are nothing more than a prolofic hosting requester, as I pointed out on another site you are not the type of customer we want.
Simply put, if you do not like the way we do things go elsewhere, don't make statements over our policy when you did not even get accepted to see it.
As an apology for the site being down you can get the following shared hosting account from us by quoting "Wise1" in the referrer box when signing up to the forums. This is more than we would offer new customers. I am limiting this offer to the next 10 people sign up and the offer will expire 24 hours from now. We do not normally do this, as I say it's simply an apology to all our free webhosting talk members. Don't forget to put Wise1 in the refer box or your account will be deleted.
