Half-life of free web hosts

I'm still wondering if he actually was a student, or if that was simply a cover up for the grossly failed business. I'm not 100% convinced that I believe the guy, to be honest.

There was plenty of doubt here too, though it was one of the more unusual reasons given for a failed host. I was pretty upset because I thought conceptually he had the next innovation in hosting, which was owner-assistance installing web apps which I for example know nothing about. He got a 1% sliver of luck that I hadn't gotten serious using my apps, because then I would have been livid when he folded. In a way that's why I do old school upload posting, so that no host failing can really take me down.

As many of you pointed out - there are a lot of abusers of the system. Some time ago I had my account suspended by resellerclub(directi) because I didn't look into one of my users who was hosting illegal stuff. They thought I am the culprit (Well I am responsible for the content in my hosting) and it took some convincing to let them give back my domain.

But I really hope to continue to provide free hosting for a long time to come - there are a few genuine guys who really want this to know about hosting.

I ran Stonerocket for 6 years, which I recently sold. My life is just to busy to dedicate all those hours in running a free hosting provider anymore.

Maybe one day i`ll start another free host provider.

I agree with the guys before saying the abusers really kill it. I was the community manager of Post2Host World before I revived it a few days ago, and the abusers were hosting things like russian porn, CPU-intensive scripts, nulled scripts, the whole nine yards.

The other reason "free" hosts close is because they aren't making a huge income from it. That's why Post2Host World died in the first place and many free hosts die.

I think they don't have even half life. Some free hosts have quarter life. But there are some good ones as well.
