How can you offer free hosting?
A. We add a small header and a small footer to each of
Q. How can I upload my website?
A. You have 2 choices. For those of you who know FTP,
you can use your favorite FTP client (CuteFTP
and WS-FTP are very
popular). If you don't know very well FTP, you can use your favorite
browser. We recommand Internet
Explorer 5 because it has more features than Netscape.
When using your browser, you can simply drag & drop (or copy &
paste) folders and files from your local computer to your browser.
Please note that you received all the instructions on how to use this
when you signed up with us.
Q. I heard some free hosts are doing nasty things to
websites they host, including adding consoles, limiting their bandwidth,
overload their servers, and so on. Are you doing the same thing?
A. No, No and No! We will always keep our headers and
footers the smallest as possible, we will never add consoles to your
sites, nor will we limit your bandwidth. You see, we're not greedy as
some freehosts. We are a small team of young and dynamic people, working
for themselves. Our goal isn't to make lots of money, it is to offer you
the best free hosting as possible. We keep a very thin profit margin,
because the bigger we are, the better are the prices we have on
bandwidth. This is very profitable for our other projects.
Q. Can I post my galleries to TGPs? Are you banned from
A. Yes you can post galleries to TGPs, you're invited
to do so. Currently we don't know any TGP that blacklisted us. We will
always carefully choose the links/banners we put in headers/footers to
make sure your galleries are accepted at the most TGPs as possible.
Q. Which files are accepted?
A. Currently we support standard html and images files,
which means .htm, .html, .gif, .jpg, .js and .css. We are currently
evaluating the possibility of adding support for movies. The size of
your individual files should be < 85kb. Files exceeding this size
will get automatically deleted. Besides that, there's no limit on the
number of files you can host in your account.
Q. Can I have more than 1 account?
A. No, please don't. Anyway you have unlimited space in
your account, so there's no point in getting more accounts.
Q. I have other questions! How do I contact you?
A. You can email us at [email protected]
Q. Do you support CGI/PHP/SSI/.htaccess?
A. Not at the moment, but we're working on it. We will
add features based on what is the most needed.
Q. Can I use my own domain name?
A. Yes! We now support domain name hosting. To map your domain
name to your account, you must do 2 things. First, log into our members
area, and add your domain name to your account. Second, point the
DNS servers of your domain to ns0.kinghost.com (22.214.171.124) and
ns1.kinghost.com (126.96.36.199). DNS transfers usually take between 2
and 5 days (this is how the net works, we can't do anything to speed
this process), so please be patient. Please note that FTP infos remains
the same, and that we don't forward any emails.
