    I notice on http://wordpress.org/hosting/ there are no free hosts mentioned, such as our own Blogsome.

    I do think it is a very useful platform, at the very least, to test out some of the features of WordPress, and that Blogsome and/or some of the other similar free hosts should get a mention.

    I'm posting this here as I didn't get a reply to my email to hosting@wordpress.org as suggested on the hosting page or from an email sent to one of the developers.

    I'd be interested in anyone's views on this.

    Our views are largely irrelevant. The WordPress website is under the exclusive control of Matt. I'd say wait patiently until he responds to your email. He's a busy fellow, what with the recent release of WordPress 1.5.1.3 and all.

    This could be one reason, probably among others, that Blogsome is not included on the hosting page:

    If you do decide to go with one of the hosts below and click through from this page, some will donate a portion of your fee back�so you can have a great host and support WordPress at the same time.

    Fair enough. We can't donate any fee back if we're not getting a fee in the first place. It's understandable that WordPress would try to maximise it's very limited revenue channels.

    There may be other reasons. For example there could be many free wordpress hosts and if start mentioning one, you probably have to mention them all. Why not mention a few good paying ones that you can vouch for?

    I also notice that our "strut your stuff" post, announcing the launch of our site, made last November was deleted and topic closed:

    Hmmm. I suppose I can understand what's going on.

    AN Hosting is now Midphase. We had a surprise switch on Friday afternoon when AN gave us 2 hours notice that they were moving our site.

    WordPress may wish to inquire if the link is still merited.
