So I just started using infinityfree. The control panel (epizy) keeps signing me out whenever I refresh or click another button and I have to log back in every time.
Also, it doesn’t let me edit index2.html in the htdocs folder.
Error during FTP upload, permission denied at: “/htdocs/index2.html”.
And I’ve been waiting for 15 minutes, but nothing loads when I go to my website. I tried going to just imagienworld.rf.gd , imagienworld.rf.gd/index2 , imagienworld.rf.gd/index2.html , imagienworld.rf.gd/index.html, etc.
I don’t want to use a website builder like wordpress or something. I want to create the website from scratch and my goal is to create a 2d online multiplayer game with the website. So, how do I do it?
Ok, so I decided not to use filemanager.ai but filestash.app. There seems to be no problems with filestach.
Also apparently my website redirects to ww0.rf.gd and it says that my website has to wait 1-72 hours.
Once it is online, do I just go to imagienworld.rf.gd/index.html? Or imagienworld.rf.gd/htdocs/index.html?
How to make a main page (imagienworld.rf.gd)?
Hi, thanks for the quick-ish reply. I was taking a nap so didn’t see it until now. I tried clearing my DNS cache using elevated command prompt “ipconfig /flushdns” just after I made this post 5 hours and once again right now.
I also tried clearing my chrome’s browser cache, but when going to my website—it still redirects to the ww01.rf.gd link.
Then, I thought about my VPN and maybe that’s the reason. So I disconnected and reconnected to another IP, and voila, my website loaded.
So—the latter half of my post asks if I can make a 2d online multiplayer game with my website. Infinityfree said unlimited hosting, so that’s why I chose it. How do I setup and host a webserver with infinityfree to make a game with a server-client infrastructure? Can I setup websockets?
Besides that, how do I store data within my website? I want to make an account system with login and all that. If hosting a multiplayer real time browser game natively within my website is impossible, could I host a webserver (for the game) elsewhere and connect websockets from my website to that webserver?
But still, a native login system is absolutely necessary. How do I do that first?
That’s because the default welcome page cannot be edited.
Please delete it and upload your own page instead.
No, we don’t. I don’t know where you got it from.
Just to clarify, you cannot setup your own web server with us, but you can build your own web application. The only thing to be aware of is that you’re limited to the hosting environment we provide, which means you can only write the server side part of your website in PHP.
The other thing you should note is that our hosting is intended for websites. If the client of your game runs in the browser on your website, it will work. But if it’s a separate application, then it won’t work.

Most websites with dynamic functionality store data in a database. We provide MySQL databases for that purpose. But you can also use SQLite on our hosting or just store the data as files.
