Quite shocked to hear that the PFAF website has
gone off line as well!
It can be quite hard to find a decent webhost that
is not to expensive.
I have been running a large
non-commercial hobby website myself for just over 2 years now all
about trees (www.the-tree.org.uk),
which has presently over a 1000 pages. I wanted to be independent & did not
want any advertisements or strings and be able to use the domain name, have
frontpage extensions and good database facilities, etc.
I found a great deal
for less than 50 pence a week (£20 a year + VAT). Don't worry - I have no
shares or other interests in this business!
I was please to find this server myself and have
been with them without any problems for over 2 years. So just wondered if they
would make suitable host for PFAF? Details below.
All the specs are fantasticly good and
generous for the money, their server is quite fast and their support is
impressively prompt (so far always within the hour).
The only limiting factor
on the deal might be the 6 GB data transfer per months. I don't know how many
hits and visitors use the PFAF site to know if this would be
To give you an idea of what this means: I have had
291534 hits during the last 30 days generated by
25107 individual users, which added up to 1835 MB of data transfer this month.
The fact that the hits are so much more than the indivual users is due to the
fact that I have lots of pictures and quite a few java-type link buttons,
which all contribute muchly to the data transfer.
Anyhow, hope PFAF finds a good server soon! Best of
