free hosting rack111.com

I have recently moved to a free web host, rack111.com. The experience turned out to be very nice. My custom application built on XOOPS 2.0.18.1 runs nicely on their servers. The host has just upgraded their system and had a major account clean up, so web page load is fast. Furthermore, the host does not require adding their ads in my pages. For anyone who is out there looking for a XOOPS host, I highly recommend this one as a start.

Re: free hosting rack111.com

It is no longer true that rack111 is ad-free. They now put a fairly unobtrusive Google ad bar on the bottom of every page.

There also seems to be issues with downtime and ftp is hit-and-miss at best

Re: free hosting rack111.com

I am still using rack111.com. And I still consider it as a good quality web host, given the features they offer and the support they provide. For example, they have mbstring support, and my Chinese version XOOPS runs beautifully on this host. I am a lot happier with rack111 than my previous paid host, which does not know anything that is multi-byte. The uptime of this host is also improved greatly. Since their last update on 8/1, I did not notice that the host has ever gone down. The customer support is also prompt and helpful.

It is true that they added one line of google ad at the bottom of my page, though that does not bother me. If you truely do not like that google ad, you can pay them $10 to have it removed. Putting myself in their shoes, I think it is fair, since they too also need to make a living.

Re: free hosting rack111.com

Last week i created site in rack111 with XOOPS 2.0.18.2 by use its sub domain like "name.rack111.com", its great if compare with others free hosting.

i found that the adv at bottom is gone after i install XOOPS cms to the root directory, anyway i paste the code to the site manually. as what yingzhao said "they too also need to make a living." and i dont mind with the ads.

but i have a problem to setup the mail. anyone have any idea on how to setup the mail hosted in rack111?

Re: free hosting rack111.com

Re: free hosting rack111.com

they not support email for subdomain like yourname.rack111.com

if you have your own domain hosted in the server then no problem.
