Family History Hosting provides first-class web hosting services for genealogists and family historians. We are pursuing the same hobby as you, and we know what you need!

We eliminate the technical hassles and barriers that prevent you from publishing your work. We know that you want to spend your time researching, communicating with members of your family, and breaking through brickwalls. Any time you spend wrestling with web-related challenges is time wasted.

We created a hosting service that is designed to meet your needs. We don't provide the dizzying array of options available at some web hosts because frankly, you don't need them. All that clutter confuses the issue and forces you to learn about technologies that are not pertinent to your hobby.

Meanwhile, we are prepared to add scripts and features on a by-request basis for those users with particular needs.

Our Standard Plans includes the following pre-defined and pre-installed capabilities. You can choose to use them, or not, but they are there for you the minute you sign-up:

  • Public and private folders
  • Web usage reports

Behind the scenes, we protect you from common web problems like bandwidth stealing, where unscrupulous people reference images from your site on their web pages to transfer the bandwidth load from their web host to yours. You may not even be aware of such schemes, but we are, and we're here to help.

You can tell we're different. Check out our Hosting Plans page. Yes, we tell you how much disk space and bandwidth you get, but we skip the confusing terms and long lists of tools you've never heard of and don't need. If you know what Fantastico or CRON is, you may want to buy web services from another provider. If you know why Ellis Island is important, or what FGS means, then you are in the right place!
