We’re happy to announce that we’re officially moved over to our new data center in Buffalo, NY! No customers noticed any downtime that were already pointing to our nameservers. Our new servers feature Intel Xeon CPU E3-1270 V2 processors with 32GB of RAM. This will help support the increase in demand for our free hosting and help stability across the network. Happy free hosting!

Good news! We’ve just launched our daily backup system today. What does this mean for you? Your site will be backed up to a remote server automatically every day! Before we were running manual backups ourselves which took up precious time. In case a server ever crashes, or you accidentally make a change to your site that you didn’t mean to, you can open a support ticket and we can restore your site up to 3 days prior. Just tell us which of the 3 days you want to go back to.
What do you have to do? Absolutely nothing! This is all automated and absolutely FREE! We strive to make your free hosting experience as painless as possible!
Prior to today, we were using reseller hosting accounts. We’ve now outgrown reseller hosting, passed VPS servers, and moved directly to dedicated servers.
We can confirm that everyone’s accounts were successfully moved over without any down time. It appears that the name-servers have now 100% propagated over to the new servers. If you’re using NS1.WeHostFree.com and NS2.WeHostFree.com as your nameservers, there’s nothing else for you to do.
However, if you’re using custom name-servers, such as ns1.YourDomain.com and ns2.YourDomain.com, then you need to update the IP addresses your name-servers point to. Otherwise your site will appear offline! If you need any assistance, please feel free to open a support ticket.
Our new servers are located in Canada, which is a central location for the entire North American continent. We have been thinking about opening a dedicated server overseas for our foreign customers. If this is something you think you’d be interested in, please feel free to e-mail us or leave a comment below.
As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to open a support ticket 24/7/365.
Take a look at our Windows storage which holds all of our files. We’re ALMOST to a FULL 10TB which translates in to almost 10,000GB, or basically 312 Samsung Galaxy S4 phones being completely full of data!
On top of that, our 10TB of storage is also backed up remotely to another data center here in Minneapolis, Minneosta! Your site is backed up, which is then backed up to another server! Please sleep well at night knowing that your data is safe with us here at WeHostFree.
