Monthly website showcase: January

January 18, 2009 No comments »

We love it when our customers put a lot of effort into creating high quality, nice looking and easy to read websites.

Every month we’ll give you a taster of just some of our customer’s websites hosted by us, that really caught our eye. After all, hard work should be rewarded!

What better way to get your website noticed by thousands every month! If you run a website hosted by us and would like to be considered for review, please send us an email to showcase@getfreehosting.co.uk

This month’s showcase winners (in no particular order):

NerdsOfTheYear.com - Avid gamers, check out this website. Chad has spent a lot of time developing this quality gaming website and his hard work really shows. You’ll find game reviews, contests, how-to’s and a whole lot more. Keep up the good work!

online-send-flowers.com - A nice looking, dating advice website. If you’ve got an internet dating question, this helpful website will have the answer. Well worth a visit, especially if you’re look to date via the internet.

deism.getfreehosting.co.uk - This community website caters for Deists and those of Dieistic thought. The topic may not cater to everyone’s tastes, however we liked the work put in by Bob to make a good looking, well-functioning website.

More to come next month! Well done to the above sites, we wish you every success for the future!

GetFreeHosting.co.uk reaches PR3 with over 1,500 visitors a month!

January 17, 2009 No comments »

There you have it. We’ve come so far since our free hosting concept was started back in March 2008!

A recent check of our page statistics (we recommend and use StatCounter) revealed that we get on avergae 1,500 unique visitors every month, with at least 68% of them signing up for their own, free hosting account with us. Not bad, considering we’re just approaching our 1st birthday!

After we finished oggling at the fancy graphs StatCounter provided, we checked our recent keyword report that revealed that we were the 6th (out of  1,540,000,000 listings!) shown on the 1st page of UK Yahoo’s search term for “free hosting“.

We’re getting there with Google, most of our keywords land us on the 1st page of their search results when a user searches for them however we couldn’t find the proper statistics to verify this today.

Our page rank check confirmed that we were now officially Google Page Rank 3.

You may be interested to know that most of our visitors come from the United Kingdom, the second being India and the third being from the United States.

We’d like to say a big thankyou to everyone that’s helped us get so far. Keep visiting and making GetFreeHosting.co.uk your preferred free hosting provider!

Optimise our footer advert for your website

No comments »

We’re flexible. If the small, text-links footer advert we automatically append to the bottom of every page on your website doesn’t fit in, or doesn’t match your page’s background colour- get in touch!

We’ll be happy to provide you the code with an optimised footer advert that better matches your website. By default, our footer advert has a white background, but if you run a website with a black back ground for example, it won’t look too great…

Login to your website’s control panel and submit a support ticket requesting your optimised footer advert. Please tell us the HEX code (#: FFFFFF) of the background colour you would like us to match and we’ll reply with your new code.

How’s that for customisation! :)
