Moving Servers - Tonight 28/4/12
Due to the current host having a pathetic policy of suspending sites as soon as they get an email from a 3rd party about such unimportant things as a link removal, I've decided to move to a host that uses common sense and interacts with their customers first. Currently anyone can say something to my host about a site and they suspend it with no proof!!!!
Stupid or what?
So tonight around 9pm I'll shift everything to the new host. This mean the forum will not be down long, however it does mean the change of IP will make the forum unavailable to some until your ISP updates the DNS. Hopefully this will all be done by the morning. The site should still be viewable during the changeover, but the forum cannot be used on the old IP.
You may find you can access the site through an online proxy server well before your ISP updates, so just search Google for 'online proxy server' and try a few as some will find the site other won't!!

Definitely not ..... apart from that policy though they were excellent. Servers ran well, good price, great customer support.... but they have suspended 6 of my sites including www.filipinouk.co.uk in the last 3 months due to 3rd parties contacting them over something.
They suspened the site then ask you to remove the 'offending' information!!! Erm..... the sites suspended!!!
FilipinoUK was taken offline because a company in the Philippines had complained about a comment made by a member, a truthful one in their own experience, but I had to remove ..... free speech my
