Don't host your site here if you want people to see it.
I am an IT student and from time to time I get assignments which involve creating and hosting small websites. I like to use free hosting as these websites need to be online for just a few months.
That's where Free-Space came in. To be fair, when you sign up for a free plan you get a lot of gadgets at your disposal. PHP support, a MySql database, e-mail boxes, FTP access, etc.
However, the most important thing a hosting provider should offer is REASONABLE UPTIME. And that's exactly what Free-Space fails to do. Horribly. And I'm not talking 24-7 uptime here. Sure, I can understand that my site may be down for a few minutes due to a server reboot but I am talking about DAYS here. And it has happened twice now. I couldn't access my ftp, database or e-mail either. You don't get any information or support from administrators whatsoever. You can only wait and hope your site goes back online.
So if you want to build a website and show it the world one day, don't host it at Free-Space.
Biggest Pro: Lots of features
Biggest Con: very low uptime performance
