Afreecloud - Free Web Hosting
#1
Just seen this site, If this was posted before, please do delete. I did search "afreecloud" and "a free cloud" but nothing came out.

AFreeCloud is a project by Joe Dougherty, co-founder of Secure Dragon LLC. and previous administrator of FreeWebHostingTalk.com. Joe used to be very active in the Free Web Hosting community until Secure Dragon came along in 2010 and ate up all of his online time (currently a two-man operation in 9 different data centers, over 1000 active clients, and he also wrote and maintains their custom control panel called Wyvern).

I looked into afreecloud in the past. They seem to have a reputation for good service and excellent communication. I elected not to participate in their free hosting as some of the restrictions in their acceptable use policy would didn't quite fit my needs (namely no unnattended server side scripts) and I was worried the 1gb of storage would simply not be adequate. Hopefully it is appropriate to reproduce their acceptable use policy here, along with a recommendation to check the link in case of updated terms.

Well 1gb with 100gb of transfer not a bad idea for small blog.
I think will give it a try sometime. And start a new blog.

Not as far as I can see.  You can check the hosting specs below.
https://afreecloud.com/index.php?p=hosting

As far as I can see it's a no-frills very basic shared hosting account.  1GB disk space and 100GB bandwidth.  Either with cPanel, Interworx or VestaPanel.  Unlimited e-mail addresses, mySQL databases, ftp accounts and sub domains.  You can use either your own domain or a sub-domain that is provided.  Location of servers is California and Nevada.  No support provided.

If you sign up make sure not to use a proxy.  If you check the FAQs the owner is quite serious about this.  IPs get checked apparently.

Looks interesting to me from the point of view of the owner of the hosting service who is a real character in the hosting business.  But my ISP is located too far from the servers.

I registered and only VestaCP and California location is available for free because there were a lot of abusers.
(I can't find their forum post about this)
They offer free support at their public forum in their free plan.

For their paid plans they offer support by email and all locations are available.
