1 emerald 97 replies 6,251 views | started 01/18/2014 6:04 pm by Redportal


IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are now known as CloudMc Hosting, you can find us over at http://cloudmc.co.uk/



FreeNode has been setup, and is ran by people just like you. We understand what gamers need and we understand that not everyone has the money to pay for game servers. Thats why we have decided to setup FreeNode in the first place. We don't just offer a free server, we offer premium servers at no cost to the user at all. All on our own, home built servers that have been setup and configured to run minecraft the best they can.

The reason why we are posting here today is not to advertise or sell servers, but is to see just how many would be interested in seeing us release. We would be here for the long haul and won't be going any time soon.
We hope to release a beta shortly, hosting around 20 Minecraft servers, the specs of these servers will be listed later on in this post.



If you are interested in the idea of this, we would love it if you could please leave a comment or PM this account, as we can add you to the beta list, and will contact users depending on the status of servers available once the beta comes out.



Each server comes with the following features and specs, please understand that these specs are to be upgraded once the beta finishes and are all subject to change before final release.

512Mb - 1Gb Dedicated Ram
Auto 6 Hour backups (Offsite)
Dedicated hardware and network
Multicraft control panel and Ftp
24/7 Support (Uk)
5 - 15 Slots

Thanks again for reading this post, and we look forward to seeing how many people here would be Interested in getting a free beta server from us. We are also expected to release the beta servers within the next 2 weeks.


We look forward to hearing from you all soon, best regards The FreeNode Team.

This is just the thing I've been looking for! I think this is an amazing idea and I would happily join in on the beta. My IGN is "scarryface" and you can always pm me here if you need more info. Please consider adding me to the list and thanks in advance you amazing people making this possible!

Btw when I try to go to your website (http://free-node.com) I get an error 404 and it redirects me to http://www.hostinger.se/error_404?

Edit: Huh... When I tried to visit your website from my school network it blocked the site saying "phishing-and-other-frauds"... Could you please explain why?

I don't like to be the guy with the bad news, but you were also not added to the first list of beta servers. Though your account was not removed or declined just due to the large number of requests we got we were unable to fit you in. If a server becomes free we will try and fit you in. In the mean time feel free to follow our progress on twitter at http://twitter.com/free_node

We have a rough road map, though it is subject to change. The first beta servers are to be given out around the 30th. Though we may bring some out before then so our users can test them for bugs.

"mariolover2003"i want to be a beta tester cause i don't really know how to make a server and being a beta tester it could really help out

Though we would recommend knowing how to setup your own server before you apply for the beta list, its not essential as our 24/7 support team will be more than happy to help guide you through the setup of your server.

Hope this helped, added you to the beta list.

1) Ive added your pmc username to our very long beta testers list.

2) There is no catch to our free hosting. Though many users think that our service must have a hidden scam or cost somewhere, its simply not the case with FreeNode. We are a %100 free and non-profit group, unlike other free hosts we don't even charge for many of our upgrades; all you have to do is come along and attend our online events such as bug finding and stress testing and your server will start to be upgraded.

Kind regards Redportal.

Will the server ips be different or will servers have the same ip but different port?

To start with (For the beta anyways) all servers will run from the same Ip, but different ports. Though after the betas finished, we hope to have around 10 Different static ip's this will allow us to provide more default ports and also help us protect other servers from ddos and help us monitor network connections.

If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.

Could I have a Hosting spot? I'd like to message you about a sponsorship? I can promote your Free hosting company, in return for a 2gb server with about 25 slots. I currently have a server, with lots of dedicated players, but the problem is, I can't afford a real host. I bought one.. and it was a scam.

Sorry for the late reply EpicRobertA1, we have been very busy at the moment sorting things out ready for the closed beta. Sadly we can't spare the ram for a server that large at the moment, due to the massive number of beta requests. Once the closed beta is over, we would love to discuss what you have said above more.

Kind Regards Redportal
