I've switched to MyOwnFreeHost after the signups closed last January and the only thing I regret is not doing so earlier.
MyOwnFreeHost's servers are very reliable (99.9% uptime is common) and fast. Their system is riddled with iFastNet ads and they provide less monetization options than YouHosting. With MyOwnFreeHost, you can only set control panel ads and website ads, whereas with YouHosting you could also set custom error page redirections among other things (although many of those have already been broken in some way).
They do allow you to add your own iFastNet affiliate code to the control panel, but they don't include the affiliate code to most links (as far as I can see) and where they do, they only pay a measly 5% commission (compared to 50% on Hosting24, for example).
On the bright side, this means that MyOwnFreeHost is beneficial to iFastNet as well. That means they are motivated to keep it going and not abandon it like you-know-who did.
Also, moving customers is completely impossible. All you can do is ask them to move. And expect to lose all but your most loyal users in the process. Still, if you had a good stream of new customers, that will probably carry over.
So in short, your revenue and customer base will take a big hit, but you will be able to rebuild on a stronger base.
