View Full Version : redirecting free hosts

06-26-2002, 03:18 PM

Can anyone please verify which free hosts redirect?
so far my list is:

i'm not sure about these ones:

is playerdome around anymore? not too many submissions from there.

it's time to crack down s'more on uh-oh.

i'm based in canada, and i hardly get any redirecting traffic up here. most complaints stem from europe, sometimes the states, and another huge chunk from asia.

?? i understand the ban on asia, but europe? i could never guess that one. i thought they'd be a big part of the market after watching all the guy ritchie films. = )

All free-hosts redirect -- just use paid hosting! You'll see your income jump at least 30%!

i use paid hosting, but most links submitted to uh-oh are not, and i get a huge amount of complaints from my surfers. ever since i made it so people have to sign up for an account to submit, things have been a lot better. no more php offshore clicks popping up (a few escape me, but they don't last for more than a day). I think you've even emailed me about bad links on uh-oh!

so i am thinking about cleaning up the listings entirely and just wanted to know who to ban. i guess they are all redirecting! oh well.

Ohh -- you're Jeremy!

Seriouslly, most free hosts now redirect. Two that don't are adultprohost.com and adultwire.com -- I'm friends with the owners.

Also, I got a few suggestions for uh-oh that you may like. Hit me up on icq 2929686

06-26-2002, 06:32 PM
i don't use icq much, it distracts me from my work. = ) ahhh..everyone has suggestions for uh-oh! hahahah.....
actually, please do send them my way. i'm currently in the process of creating uh-oh.org (finally got it after struggling two years with someone else owning it), and while I have an idea of what i want it to be, there are some more features for it that i would like, but can't think of!
it will contain articles, possibly a forum (if i ever get the strength to program one), maybe an uh-oh TGP ring? dunno about that....and website reviews; amateur model reviews; models....etc etc.......but that is also up in the air. so, email me, i'm always working 9-5 est and will reply.

Oh man don't get me started with redirects......so many redirect non western traffic.

Here are the ones that I suspect of redirecting. Some of these I may of banned due to over advertising, but I believe most are for redirecting international traffic.

Just ran a check on my archives and see that pornsexhost.com & fastestpipe.com have just gone 404 and are redirecting like a bitch.

Hey Jeremy, I see you got smutserver on your shit list. I think they are one of the few that do not jerk you around. People say they delete files for no reason. Files over their 80kb limit are auto deleted. I have had an account with them for 3 years now and have never seen and funny business. Even the hun will post smutserver hosted galleries.

06-27-2002, 01:08 AM
Maybe us TGP owners should give people who use reliable paid hosting top gallery spots to encourage other submitters to do so as well (use paid hosting).

06-27-2002, 01:09 AM
Hey Austin -- what's your ICQ?

06-27-2002, 06:54 PM
thanks for the tip austin! smutserver removed...i don't know why i put that on..it may have been on the "sites too slow from this free host" list. Are smutserver pages slow when they load?

Thanks for that huge list CrazyAl!

I think i'll construct a page free of all the sites listed, and hence, even though it'll be a short list, at least ppl not in n. america aren't looking at garbage.

You may want to add woodyhosting.com to your no-no list. Albeit the fact that they are listed a lot on Asianthumbs.org, they are *extremely* slow.

07-08-2002, 01:29 AM
I reluctantly add blinghosting.com to the list of redirecting freehosts.

I say reluctantly because I liked them and thought they were great for about a week and was totally disappointed by them redirecting my shit.

I have my owner server, but always look for a good freehost for some of my 'projects'

07-08-2002, 01:53 AM
Mikey they just cut you off or they redirecting traffic from Asia?

07-08-2002, 02:59 AM
They just cut me off. I mean everything would be normal, look normal. Upload stuff fine. Go to submit galleries and would get messages saying "there is no recip to our tgp, correct and submit again" or something similar. The message you get right after submitting a gallery to a tgp using auto gallery pro or brownie. On some tgps, I would even get a message saying our script has detected and rejected your page because of this code "(whatever redirect code was being used)".

Plus my own sites scripts were telling me those galleries were being redirected!

Then I would also look at my sponsor stats, in this case a sponsor using CTC, so I could see what pages were sending hits and how many. The pages on the domain hosted by blinghosting weren't registering anything. That is a sponsor that I send 500 hits a day to, so usually it is like 20 hits an hour, more or less. All of a sudden it is down to like 3 or 4 hits and hour.

The next day I wouldn't have problems submitting to tgps. So it was like random 404's or something because it would last for about 8 hours.

But the damage was already done, the tgps with the bots that go through and check for pages being redirected already removed them. So it is like a double whammy, not only do I lose my traffic for the time the redirected the traffic, but also for the future because now that domain (it was my own doamin on their server) is blacklisted and those pages caught redirected were removed.

zfreehost - random 404

what you guy think about freefuckhost.com? i heard they slow and sometime not working.

07-08-2002, 04:47 AM
All free-hosts should be banned. That's the easiest way for TGP's to setup their blacklist :)

07-08-2002, 05:52 AM
If I had enough galleries on pay hosts I would do that :P but you know as the niche increases in size it's going to happen :) if you look at larger main stream tgps they almost list only pay host galleries. Although have a few posters that send me really nice galleries on free hosts would suck to ban them.

07-08-2002, 06:11 AM
It would suck to ban them. I do the majority of my posting with paid hosting and will usually test out sponsors with a freehost so I don't waste my bandwidth on a shitty non-converting sponsor. Once they past my testing period on a freehost, meaning they convert, I put them on my paid host.

But if they got banned tomorrow I wouldn't care too much. In fact I might like it, because of less competition.

I just hate it the way they jerk around not only the surfer but also the webmaster.

Banning free-hosts should give them the message to go out and get some paid-hosting so they can start making real money.

07-08-2002, 04:52 PM
freefuckhost, blinghosting, woodyhosting are 3 of the slowest ass servers I have ever seen.

i am an impatient person, so slow galleries always get crossed off the list. it's just not worth it.

07-08-2002, 06:16 PM
TheAdultWire.com is a good free host -- I know the guy who runs it and he is very dedicated to making sure his host runs smoothly!

Those guys that send you those nice galleries on freehosts are probably also sending you nice galleries on paid hosting, too. Just trying to spread it around, wink, wink.

Just found coolness.com placing popups on their freehost.
whatsup wit dat?

Typical crap from a freehost. I know running a freehost is alot of work, but all the shit they pull, redirects, popups, etc., no wonder they don't make money. They just shoot themselves in the foot by doing that stuff by getting their host blacklisted.

cute chick ;-)

hey eru-- adultprohost.com doesn't work..is there another URL?

btw, does anyone know of any good PAID hosting? Ever since i started to limit new accounts, people have been asking me.

07-09-2002, 05:18 PM
Jeremy -- I use Like Whoa and ISPrime. Both hosts rock and if you tell them that eru sent you -- you will get kickass discounts. If you are interested in Like Whoa, talk to Frank. If you are interested in ISPrime, talk to Denis.

Steve, that girl is Minori Aoi. I like her a lot too. She is really cute and has a habit of cosplaying as schoolgirls in her AV movies. She also did a very popular lesbian photoshoot with Nana Horiuchi.

all the http://www.pornhouses.com sites have gone 403.

10-07-2002, 07:14 AM
Anyone who was using xtac.com is fucked. All their shit has gone 404 redirect.

For Straight gallery posting, I don't think I've come across a better deal than http://www.cobaltweb.com/monsterplan.htm
Any amount you want, add more as you go. No Cgi or MySql though, although who needs that for galleries?
They also have a pay for what you use plan that's pre-paid.
Only problem with paid hosting is when you get picked up by jp-sex and that lot. Bandwidth goes through the roof, and no money comes in. If you change your links to take advantage of the Japanese traffic, half the scripts out there delete your galleries. If you post galleries that already take advantage of Japanese traffic, then you lose the English speakers. :(
This situation seems to be unique to the Asian stuff as well. I've never had a bandwidth problem with the other stuff I do/did under my alter alter-ego. :lol:
