Hosting and Security Issues
« on: July 11, 2019, 06:52:10 PM »
We are moving to a new hosting company. The reasons have been previously stated by pm, email and here…

http://1858remington.com/discuss/index.php?topic=12129.0

Hostinger is the new hosting company and they offer 4 years hosting for $165, which is less than the cost for 8 months with our current hosting company.  I do not know when Hostinger's promotion for new customers will end.

I can continue to pay for hosting on a monthly basis with no problem, but can not afford the discount package at this time.

If anyone feels compelled to contribute to the cause, it would be greatly appreciated. If there is a surplus, it will be applied to upgrades and technical issues as they arise.

As always, nothing is required or expected from anyone.

Thank you,
Smokey

A request was made Thursday night to members of the 1858 Remington Forum and Colt Country via posts on both forums and to the members of the 1858 forum by newsletter. The newsletter function is broken on Colt Country.)


The financial objectives are as follows…

Lifetime SSL Certificates: One is free.  The other is $12.
SSL Certificate  installation ( I am likely to have to hire some help)  Safe estimate: $80
4 year hosting: $165
3 year priority tech support: $72 ( Both forums are way outdated. Updates can go wrong. This has already happened to Colt County. I am glad we had timely tech support.)

Target Total $329

Amount raised by members of the 1858 Remington Forum and Colt Country to date:
(Members names omitted)
In order…
$30
$50
$10
$20
$10
Total $120
Thank you for your contributions. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I am proceeding with the migration of our forums to Hostinger. Anyone compelled to help out can send funds via…

PayPal email address: smokey@blackpowdersmoke.com

The donation button on the forum homepage.

Or email smokey@blackpowdersmoke.com for physical address.

Thank you,
Smokey

Well, looks like we are a third of the way there! _l
If every member gave up one cup of that foo-foo coffee we'd be rollin' in it!
