Yes, I am reading the forum. But I don't have many things to speak. face-smile.png Sorry for that face-wink.png

About my site: I know that it is down for a while (2-3 weeks?). The server was down for about a week, and my friend managed to restore all data, but not configuration yet. I think that he has some personal issues. Maybe it is time to buy my own domain + set up a server? Sorry for inconvenience.

Privately hosting a website is a lot of work, so we will just have to be patient. Thanks for letting us know face-smile.png

A website is by definition hosted at home you know... and it's easier than pay for have only a distant access and softwares of the company you pay.

No, this is not a hobby that I want to take on. I can't afford the upload bandwidth, I don't have the time and knowledge to keep up-to-date with security patches on the server, and what happens if I am traveling and the server goes down? I am hosting with a smallish and very capable company that I have never, ever had any issues with. They once even moved to different premises without any outage whatsoever. And they take care of the domain registration extensions for me, so I can't forget and lose the domains. They are worth every cent of the money that I am paying them.

Of course, some hosting companies are total crap, I guess I got lucky face-smile.png
