Freesite

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A freesite is a site hosted on the Freenet network.

It cannot contain any active content like scripts or databases.

Freesites are coded in HTML and support as many features as the browser viewing the page allows, however there are some exceptions where the Freenet software will remove parts of the code that may be used to reveal the identity of the person viewing the page (making a page access something on the internet, for example).

Due to the much slower latency and bandwidth of the Freenet network, complex web technologies such as PHP and MySQL are impossible to use, making Freesites appear very simplistic, they are described by the community as being "90s-style".
