“An Exellent ISP”

published 17/07/2000

fast, free, you get a web domain

have to be using their dial ups to check mail.

Freenetname are an exellent ISP. They provide a reasonably fast connection, e-mail, a free .co.uk or .org.uk web domain, and redirect it to their servers where you can build your own website about whatever you like. Freenetname are nearly always in operation, in the last 6 months I have only...

Free domain name with 20mb of web space.

£94 to transfer your domain name.

In a World of numerous Internet Service Providers(ISP) you require a gimmick to get noticed and Freenetname's is unsurprisingly a free net name. Unfortunately for quite a while Freenetname was little more than just a free domain name but that is changing as recently they have joined forces with...

Free Domain Name

Only access through dial up

When every other company was plugging their "free" internet service where you only paid for the phone calls, freenetname went on better. They charge no monthly fee, local dial in costs and then threw in a domain name! Ease To Install: I didn't have any problems installing/setting up the...

Slow webspace

Before I even begin to express my opinion I must make it clear that if you want to know how many email addresses and webspace you get from freenetname.co.uk then I suggest you visit their website. I will let you know what I would want to know about them. Basically, as most ISPs (Internet Service...

“More than just a domain”

published 27/07/2000

Free, Free Domain, Quick, Reliable

Must use their dial-up for a lot of services

Mostly freenetname is known for the fact that they offer you a free domain, however, the service does go beyond that. As far as I have tried, freenetname is the most reliable and quickest free ISP I have ever used. The reiability is good and disconnects are rare. Connection lags are also very...

“Freenetname - Nice one!”

Well of course the offer of a free domain name (.co.uk) attracted me to using Freenetname as my ISP. And if you are an individual or a small business who wants a standard website of text and pictures then they offer you plenty of server space. Their customer support is good and I have never...

“FreeNetName is Brilliant”

published 22/07/2000

Free access, free domain

None

Some people are never happy are they? Judging by some of the other reviews on this ISP you would think that Freenetname was actually a bad ISP. Nonsense!! This is great ISP, and free. Remember that it wasn't too long ago that a £15 monthly subscription charge was commonplace, and you still had to...

“Great ISP and a FREE domain”

published 24/07/2000

Free domain

Could introduce banners

As far as ISP's go Freenetname is pretty good. The service appears to be stable and fast, and I have never had an engaged tone. As a BT Internet customer this really is a novelty! The terms of Freenetname are that you use the dial-up at least once every six weeks. If you have a website hosted...

“AWFUL - yes you heard me”

published 26/07/2000

Free Domain name (.co.uk/.org.uk)

Awfully slow websites

OK, I can't complain, I got a free domain name out of them, but their web servers are so slow I only use it for redirection anyway! Connecting to them is fast enough, but apart from that they're bad. You can't receive your email from another ISP and lets face it, the main reason you would join...

In my opinion, freenetname is the best local call charge ISP there is. It's a great deal! All you have to do is sign up for their free service and they will give you a free '.co.uk' or '.org.uk' domain name. It's as simple as that. You get 10megs of space to put your own masterpiece online with a...

fast isp with excellent free service and domain

how long can it last

I have used alot of free ISP. I originally settled on Freeserve despite: a) taking ages to log on (more often than not it passed your username and password twice) b) limited news groups c) difficult to understand and use free web space All these have been overcome with freenetname. Your domain is...

Free .co.uk domain name, excellent service

No longer registering new domains. Have to use fre...

I was looking for a .co.uk domain name at the time I came across freenetname and must admit I was lured by the prospect of the free domain. After signing up, I've found the service to be extremely reliable - both connections and download speeds are better than many isps that still operate on a...

Free domain name registration

But just not at the minute

Freenetname has been my ISP for a long while now, although I have recently tried out the AOL Flat Rate offer. In the time I've been with them, and we're talking about nearly 18 months, I've had two engaged tones and only one occasion when I couldn't get to my mail. Apart from that, the service...

“Too good to be true??”

published 06/07/2000

free domain name for goodness' sake!!

have to use their DUN to access FTP, e-mail

When I first heard about this service, I thought it had to be too good to be true.. well it is too good, but it is true!! Incredible, you sign up for their ISP (free subscription, local call costs) and you get a free .co.uk or .org.uk domain name with 20 megabytes of webspace. It's a fast dial-up...

“Freenetname brings grief”

published 14/01/2001

free internet domain name

service intermittent

I joined up with Freenetname like most people for the free domain name and I have been able to use the service to build up a reasnable site. The problem with Freenetname is the service is up and down all the time - especially on Saturdays, presumably when fellow webmasters are updating their...
