I've decided to buy my F2S host, what happens with all the links to
http:// www.ultimate-elvis.f2s.com ?
I mean, will the 'f2s' in the name still be active, even though I bought http://www.ultimate-elvis.com ?

First of all, I don't think you're going to buy F2S Smile!

If you buy a paid account from F2S, you get to keep the free one. It's up to you what you do with the free one. You could put up a redirect on all the pages of the free account to the paid account.

The reason why I'm asking:
on my entire website I used direct links, for example: in my <IMG> tags I used src="http://www.ultimate-elvis.f2s.com/img/test.gif" Do you understand?
When I buy an account, will this way of pointing to images and files still work??

If you want, you can leave your whole site on the free account.

Otherwise, you can do a mass replace, with a text editor, and replace mydomain.f2s.com with mydomain.com.

It's up to you.

If I buy a domain and hosting with them I get 20mb.
Does that mean that I will have 20mb (old account) + 20mb (bought hosting) = 40mb?

I would really think that that's a question for F2S support.
Like someone else mentioned on this forum, try putting in "Paid Site Problem" (or something along that line) in the subject for a speedier response Wink

Why not use local links for your picture's much easier to recreate your site on a new server.
Also notice that you are breaking f2s 's t/c by having and using more than 1 site for the same site... Embarassed could explain some of the connections refused i got at your site.
As daniel said you get to keep the free account so 20 + 20 = 40 meg.

Isn't it possible to just buy your free account, I don't need those extra megs. Can't I just by http://www.ulitmate-elvis.f2s.com ??

And by the way: do I also get to keep my @ultimate-elvis.f2s.com e-mailadresses and the MySQL database etc.
If I understand correctly, I just get everything twice if I buy it with F2S?

Ask F2S directly.

I think so, but you should check before buying a paid account.

How can I check?
You all know that e-mailing them has no use, F2S never responses to them....

Actually, recently, F2S have been responding to emails. If they still don't, put "PAID SITE PROBLEM" in the subject of your email.

I did, and I mailed it to: sales@freedom2surf.net

Is there anybody who has experience with buying webhosting and a domain name with F2S?

It's solved.
If I buy domain AND hosting, I'll keep ALL the free services.

I mailed F2S and got an immediate anwser from Chris .

I thought you would, they don't seem to be getting very many emails anymore!
