General Review Section & KwiBill Licenses

General Review Section


Dear FreeVPS Directory & Discussion Community!

We're very happy to announce that the former "VPS Reviews" review section has been converted from a section for VPS only reviews to a general review section. This allows you to review whatever service (related to hosting) you want. A few pretty common examples are; 1. shared hosting, 2. game server providers, 3. VPN and proxy services and many others. Who knows? Maybe you have a really great domain provider to share and review (or something else).

To organize this forum we're using the interal prefix system of MyBB. Threads are required to have a valid prefix selected before they can be published. We've added a few of the most common prefixes for you and a prefix that can used when reviewing other service that don't match the existing prefixes. Available prefixes: 1. VPS, 2. Shared Hosting, 3. Game Servers, 4. VPN/Proxy and 5. Other. No. #5 is the common prefix for all other services. For better organization and filtering more prefixes might be added later.

KwiBill Licenses


Dear FreeVPS Directory & Discussion Community!

Due to absolute lack of interest (very unfortunate) in KwiBill we've stopped providing KwiBill licenses.

Existing licenses will be revoked in 7 days from now on!


We'd like to thank Jim from KwiceroLTD for sponsoring us the premium licenses for KwiBill. We wish we could return much more but there is unfortunately absolutely no interest here in KwiBill.


With best regards

Your FreeVPS Directory & Discussion Team

Interesting. I think people have been longing to review other 3rd party services here (since seo ranking is good) and prefixes look interesting. However, if there is a way to filter by review type (or color the prefixes) I think that would be better.

The color is pure makeup and nothing else.

You can filter here: https://freevps.us/search.php at "Search Options". There you see the prefix list. On the left select the review forum and then the service prefix and click on search.

MyBB's search system is really poor actually. I mean you're not able to search for threads with prefix A alone without any keyword. You always have to specify a keyword. I know forums where search works a lot better but they're not free.

First off, I really wanted a KwiBill license (I put it in my previous application, but I didn't get one), I like KwiBill. It's a lot better then WHMCS and HostBill (definitely) but comparable to Clientexec.

I do agree. I was recently searching for 1GB VPSs and I used 1 gb as the search term, MyBB said you need at least 3 characters in each term Tounge

About the forums with better search: Since FreeVPS is FreeVPS Directory and Discussion, why not use Discourse? It's a very good piece of software (based off StackExchange's software). If you don't like that try out Vanilla. It's pretty modern and it's extremely easy to import all of the MyBB data.

But you know, since FreeVPS is a really good community, why not invest a little bit into it? Start with something of a beta test for the new forum software (thinking IP.B or Xenforo?), and go on from there?

A forum is a place for discussion. myBB is enough.

And instead of using the money earned from ads for a paid forum, they could use it to giveaway VPSs

MyBB does the job. No need for other similar spftware

KwiBill has a community version which is free AFAIK

Great news about the general review section, Glad to see new potentials while posting new topics.
about new forum software thingy, You can pretty much do anything with MyBB that XenForo and IP.B can do.
MyBB does the job as Connan said.

Also, sad to see that KwiBill sponsorship cancelled however, It's true that we don't use it.

There seems to be a plugin XThreads that has a feature to filter threads by prefix. I have zero experience with forum softwares so I don't know how difficult it is to deploy that plugin.
