News from FreeHostia

Dear customer,

Due to the increasing number of complaints about abusive free web hosting account usage, FreeHostia is forced to discontinue the support of outgoing connections to remote servers for all free web hosting accounts. This restriction on outgoing connections will become effective on December 16th, 2008.

If outgoing connections are vital for your website (for example, if you are using RSS feeds or any other information from remote servers) we would recommend you to consider upgrading to a paid account. You can do this using the Upgrade section of your Control Panel.

Thank you for your understanding.

That's where you are hosted? For free?

I moved here from a romanian paid host (fastweb.ro) (account expiration, almost) ... just to have a place to test sNews online. I moved the blog on Blogger.
Yes, is a free account.

Ah, so your only worries are your testsites. Well, it must be difficult for them ( FreeHostia) to maintain quality for free.

Yes, I understand them. Just announced for others...
And I think this is the beginning... at the end, no free hosting.
