Just because you have some linux or system admin experience does not give you insight on how x10 runs. Unless you are part of the admin team you have no idea how the backend works or what is involved in moving just a single account between servers. It's not just copying files.
I've stated this before and I'll say it again, honestly if you have such an issue with our free hosting you're welcome to leave or upgrade to paid hosting where these issues don't exist.
if you're not one of us, you have no idea what you're talking about. uh huh.
if you don't like it, lump it. Kind of makes me wonder why x10 bothers with free hosting in the first place. It's a marketing ploy of course. Anyways, good luck, I'm sure you're trying.
Seems like a pretty bad marketing ploy :biggrin:
I'd hate to see how the books look at the end of the month for free hosting with the new servers, support calls to CPanel and R1Soft, datacenter rental, 800 number, advertising, and VBulletin. I really wonder how any free host stays in business. I mean, if geocities went down, how is it even possible?
Well, just my two cents. Life's pretty good on paid, so I guess I couldn't possibly complain
While we've been trying our best to get answers out of r1soft we have not been successful yet. As of right now it looks like we are not going to be able to recover these backups.
I have not been a member for very long, But I have found the service to be really great.
About the update. Currently my site is giving me the page load error. I can still get into my cpanel, do I have to change my nameservers if I'm using my own domain?
I'm sure this suggestion has already come up before, and perhaps I have missed this suggestion already in the works.
At any rate, why not try and get donations from the free hosting accounts.
Sure, there is an issue of fairness there, being that some people either can not or just wont pay into it. The fact here is that nothing is ever free, but it can be made free-er, so to say.
I say open up the donations, via credit card/paypal and let those who can and will donate money donate it.
Most generally, if you are a believer in open source you'll pay into X10's free hosting to keep it free. Granted this will NOT resolve all the issues x10 faces with free hosting, but it is a step in the direction of making things easier on all of us who use and/or manage it.
Bests regards, and thanks for all the hard work.
