Don't you get sick of all the "Emergancy's"?

Easiest way to fix all of this, is move to another webhost, Or host your own server.

I'm assuming none of you know how to manage a server, and I've been pre-occipied

lately, I'd recommend you use a webhost

For the people that're running the site now, I'd say you should move to ucoz (UNLIMITED BANDWIDTH)

 • http://www.ucoz.com/


For more advanced users

 • http://www.zymic.com/

 • http://www.000webhost.com/

 • http://www.x10hosting.com/


For the way-more advanced people, Run your own server

-american VPS hosting

 • http://www.dotblock.com/


-Australian VPS hosting

 • http://www.exigent.com.au/


That concludes the info, The main part of this post is to get Kallums-AR-Site a new webhost

Kallum wont want to move because he's too lazy to do it.

Quoting him from another post when we were going to move

previously "It would be too much work" <--Not exact words, but something like that


Too cut the bandwidth evan more,

Host the images on an external host (imageshack, tinypic or some junk)

http://kallums-ar-codes.webs.com/Starfield%20(compressed)%20smaller.jpg

http://kallums-ar-codes.webs.com/k%20logol.jpg



How will it conserve bandwidth?

• Your browser sends a web request to a webserver

• The server sends back html content (text)

• Your browser parses the content into a visual display


For images,

the server the request was sent to does the same with an image

Meaning, if you host the images on the webs.com server, it sends the

images (Using more bandwidth) to your computer.

If you host the images on another host, then the webs.com server

will only be responsible for sending back the html content, and the

server you host the images on will be the one that uses bandwidth.

Thus in the end, saving bandwidth

In other words, The image below is using bandwidth from MY server, Not the webs one...

We could always move to ucoz anyway. Not too many of our members are actually in the community, So we would lose members, but it may be worth it, because we can have Images in signatures and all that stuff. We may want to use a more advanced webhost though, for more customization options....

I'm fine with a more advanced host.  I did pretty well with SMFForFree, for example.


Also, what's to worry about the old posts?  Why not just copy-paste all of them?  Or are you too scared of a little work?
