It's like Geocities with PHP

A Czech hosting service. Their freehosting has been increasingly unreliable over the years, until one day they decided to finally pull the plug. And tell almost nobody.

Their freehosting service has been available since 2002 (? no later than 2005) and contains many gems of the Czech internet which are most definitely not going to migrate to paid hosting. All freehosting is terminated on 28. 2. 2015 (2015-02-28)

Their current site: https://client.ic.cz/

Their old frontpage: http://old.ic.cz/

For further information about IC.CZ or help with Czech, please contact Sanqui (also on IRC).

As of 2015-03-03, all sites on ic.cz freehosting display a notice asking site owners to upgrade to paid hosting. The original sites are no longer accessible. All data will be deleted by 2015-03-13.

As of 2015-04-03 (likely happened on -01), all domains previously freehosted on ic.cz show a notice about the "web presentation" not being uploaded.

As of before 2015-04-11, all domains, previously registered or not, contain a note about the domain being free to register.

Shutdown announcement

I cannot find an official announcement posted anywhere. The closest is probably this help article, which states:

Z důvodu blížícího se data ukončení poskytování freehostingu upozorňujeme, že k 28. 2. 2015 dojde k automatickému zrušení všech nepřevedených hostingů.

Translated:

Since the date of the termination of the freehosting service is coming close, we'd like to warn you that to the date 28. 2. 2015, all unconverted hosting will be automatically disabled.

Additional hints can be found on a few pages, including their paid hosting migration howto.

An email has been sent out to a conspicuously small amount of users. It reads:

Zrušení freehostingu [domain name].

Vážený uživateli webhostingu IC.cz,

jak jsme již informovali v předchozích měsících, provoz freehostingu bude ukončen.
Migraci Vašich webových prezentací prosím proveďte nejpozději do 28.2.2015
Pro zachování domény třetího řádu je zapotřebí provést migraci na nové IC2.

Webhosting IC2 je dostupný za cenu 600 Kč s DPH/rok. Jako věrnému uživateli Vám nabízíme 50% slevu k prvnímu předplatnému.

Váš slevový kód: IC2A4QZBMS (kód lze uplatnit v druhém kroku migrace)

Migraci prosím započněte na stránce client.ic.cz/migrate.php
Celý proces migrace naleznete v naší nápovědě na client.ic.cz/knowledgebase.php

Mezi výhody nových služeb IC2 patří především:

• lepší výkon celého hostingu
• vyšší dostupnost služeb
• nové administrační prostředí
• rozvíjející se znalostní bázi
• žádná reklamní lišta

Pokud si přejete webhosting zrušit, není z Vaší strany zapotřebí žádný krok.
Nepřevedený hosting bude automaticky zrušen k datu 28. 2. 2015.

Roughly translated:

Termination of the [domain name] free hosting.

Dear IC.cz webhosting user,
as we have already informed in the past months, the freehosting service will be terminated.
Please migrate all your web presentations before 28. 2. 2015.
In order to keep your third level domain, it's necessary to migrate to the new IC2.
Webhosting IC2 is available for the price of 600 CZK with tax per year. As our valued loyal customer, we offer you a 50% :discount off the first payment.
Your discount code: IC2A4QZBMS (the code can be used in the second step of the migration)
Please begin your migration on the page client.ic.cz/migrate.php
You can find the whole migration proccess in our help at client.ic.cz/knowledgebase.php
The advantages of the new IC2 services include primarily:
• better function of the entire hosting
• better availability of services
• new administration panel
• growing knowledge base
• no advertisement bar
If you wish to close your webhosting, you do not need to do anything.
Hosting that has not been converted will automatically be terminated by 28. 2. 2015.

Domains

The IC.CZ freehosting has offered a number of domains under which users could put their sites. The list, taken from the login form on http://old.ic.cz/, is as follows:

ic.cz
own.cz
yw.sk
hustej.net
yc.cz
kx.cz
wu.cz
tym.cz
ezin.cz
hu.cz
phorum.cz
tym.sk

vyjimecny.cz
okamzite.eu
webovka.eu
webpark.cz
over.cz
howto.cz
e-blog.cz
clanhost.cz
byl.cz

Users could also use the IC.CZ freehosting while providing their own domain.

Ad bar

All sites, including those on individual domains, are identifiable by a notice (previously ad bar) automatically inserted on the top of every page.

<!-- IClista -->
			<script type="text/javascript" src="http://img.ic.cz/1/lista.[COLOR].win.js"></script>

The ad bar can be one of a few colors, as selectable in the admin panel. [COLOR] can be one of these:

black
brown
green
orange
pink
purple
red
white
yellow
blue
silver
sand

Catalog

The old homepage, http://old.ic.cz/ (previously at http://www.ic.cz/), used to provide a catalog of the sites they host at the bottom. However, all links to the catalog 404 now. Submitting a site to the catalog was optional, but a part of the registration proccess. Finding old revisions of the directory would help tremendously with locating a large number of sites. There are some on the Wayback Machine.

Catalog directory: http://www.ic.cz/k/ (302, on Wayback Machine) (scrape of catalog directory)(not-yet-curated list from the recursive scrape of the directory
Example URL: http://old.ic.cz/k/instituce/urady/ (404, on Wayback Machine)
Format: http://old.ic.cz/k/category/subcategory/page_no

seznam.cz

seznam.cz is a czech search engine that will be very useful for discovering more subdomains. The requests are GET formatted and site:ic.cz style requests are valid. &count is limited to 20 but &from can be iterated through and will return the final result page for any number greater than the total number of results.

SPAM Filter

Some primary domains need the cookie "iccmtspmvrfy" set to "ano" for the domain before forwarding the original request. See the lists below for the which sites are blocked by the portal(need the cookie) and those that are not blocked:

Wget

As aschmitz pointed out wget -U "" --header "Cookie: iccmtspmvrfy=ano" works for bypassing the spam filter.

Webpark.cz

Webpark.cz was another freehosting service, which IC.CZ absorbed sometime during 2008/2009.

It had its own catalog, which was scraped by chip.
