OMG Domain name payment time & hosting

Hai guys.

Domain is up for renewal again (and I'm poorer than I've been lately).

Plus if anyone has their own server, no longer having Portal Forums on ma server would help, as I'm trying to downsize!

Bye guys.

Oh snap, I was wondering when we'd run out again.

I think we'd be happy to take it off your hands. Although I don't know technically how to do that off the top of my head. I have noticed that the forum occasionally does go down, so I wouldn't mind moving it to its own server.

£18 a year basically. About $22. I normally do it for at least 2 years tho, to save having to remember to do it again!

And hosting, Ransom still got his server knocking about?

~$45 sounds pretty reasonable. Ransom hasn't posted for quite some time. We'd have to hit him up on Facebook or something.

If we wanted to start a community server funded by the few remaining regulars, what would that cost us? What kinda bandwidth does PF usually gobble up?

Moneys can be Paypalled over to me paul@dasmirnov.net :-)

Hosting it, can get cheap nasty hosts that'll probably fit PF onto for like $5 a month, personally I'd probably look at paying double that, maybe $10, or $15 to get some extra reliability. Hosting quality generally ranges from shit to crap!!
