Possible Signup Troubles
Question: I try to sign up for their service but I constantly get messages like: "Warning! Check your security code!". I am
sure I type the correct code. What's wrong?
Answer: Make sure to turn cookies in your browser ON. This should resolve the issue. However, if you still can not pass through the anti-bots protection, please disable any firewalls and ads/spyware blocking software that you might have on your computer.
Question: I have not received my welcome email, so I do not know what my login details are. What should I do in this case?
Answer: First, wait for about 24 hours, to allow all the middle-man providers to resolve their issues with delayed delivery.
Second, carefully check your spam/junk/trash folders. Perhaps the welcome email got filtered at your email account. Please also make sure your mailbox/filters accept emails from @freehostingeu.com.
It is also possible that the mail server you are using has blocked the welcome email that was sent to you. In this case you can contact them via the contact form, providing email an address at another mail server and they will resend the welcome email to the new email address. For example, if at the signup you have provided email address at Yahoo, you may contact them, providing your email at Gmail.
Question: For some reason their signup/order page does not work for me. What should I do?
