Some of the servers did not work yesterday for two or three hours due to the temporary failure in the data center. The problem has been solved and all fansites are up now. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it was completely independent of us.
There exist many free fansite hostings similar to Flaunt Network on the Internet. However, there are some significant points that distinguish Flaunt from other fansites hosts.
1. Unlimited webspace.
Flaunt Network is hosting large fansites, and the biggest account amounts to ca. 45 GB at the moment. All servers are equipped with large-capacity hard drives which allows Flaunt to provide its users with unlimited webspace.
2. Only one advertisement required.
That’s true. Flaunt Network requires its users to place only one advertisement on their fansites. Flaunt wishes that the fansites look good, therefore, only one advertisement is required (not two as with other fansites hosts).
3. Security of data.
All data is properly secured due to the introduction of the double backup function. Backups are stored on two separate servers, therefore there is no possibility of losing the data. Additionally, each server is equipped with the firewall which prevents fansites from being hacked.
4. Unlimited bandwidth.
Each user receives unlimited bandwidth from the very beginning. For instance, one fansite used ca. 1500 GB of bandwidth in April.
5. Media hosting.
Flaunt Network possesses a separate media server with special libraries required for PHP Motion and vShare to work. You can check it by entering video.simplystreepmedia.com, twilight-media.org, or keiravideos.net.
Flaunt does hope that the above points will help to make a decision on joining the network.
Flaunt.nu, as the only free fansite hosting, offers a completely new service – a double backup of all data. In order to protect better the data of our users, all backups are made once a week. Moreover, once a week all data is copied onto a separate FTP server. Even if one of the servers has a breakdown, no data is going to be lost. All data is safe.
Additionally, ImageMagick and Fantastico are going to be installed on the newest server, S4. FreeType (needed for captcha to work) is going to be installed on all servers.
The new server is ready, so feel free to apply for free fansite hosting.
We are really sorry for the downtime today. The network card stopped working on the main server and technicians had to replace it. Everything is fine now. Sorry for inconvenience.
We proudly announce that Flaunt Network is already hosting almost 200 fansites which have generated ca. 20,000,000 impressions this month. The staff would like to express their gratitude for such a huge interest in the network. We have just ordered a new server which will be available in a few days’ time. If you are running a high quality fansite or would like to open one, feel free to apply!
The Flaunt Network has a new layout which was designed by Maru. Hopefully, everyone will adore it. If you run a high quality fansite, do not hesitate and join the network now!

1. Choose “Files and thumbnails advanced settings.”
2. Find “Method for resizing images.”
3. Choose Image Magick.
4. Type “/usr/bin/” “when it says Path to ImageMagick ‘convert’ utility (example /usr/bin/X11/).”
Omit quotation marks (” “), of course. In case of questions, email us.
Hello! Expect a new layout on the main page of the Flaunt Network soon. Many high quality fansites have joined the network recently and it is still developed. Feel free to join the network now!
