Smile Hosting for Moonstone Tavern - any ideas?

Hi all!

I'm the webmaster of moonstonetavern.co.uk, a (you guessed it) Moonstone fansite. I've been hosted since forever by Gamespy's Classicgaming offshoot, but received the sad news in the mail earlier this week that they're finally severing ties with all us fansites and turfing us out. The swines.

So basically, not knowing much about this kind of thing, do any of you know of any free Amiga-friendly hosts that might be up for keeping the Tavern up and running? It's only 150Mb in size and it'd be a great shame to lose what's become a bit of a cult site as the years have gone on

Any suggestions massively appreciated!

All the best,

Rob

Hi Rob and welcome to EAB

Indeed quite sad news since I'm a big Moonstone fan myself and visited your website a few times. I think that Magix (http://eab.abime.net/member.php?u=265) might be the right guy to ask about hosting your site. He's the one behind WHDownload.com and really a nice guy. You should write him a PM about your problem

FOL of PSPUAE.com & AmigaKit may also be able to help you out.

He hosts a number of amiga related bits and pieces for myself.

Send a message via ICQ to BuZz
If you haven't already found a suitable host, I would be happy to host you on our ExoticA server. Only requirement would be a textual link from your site to our hosting provider as they sponsor much of our bandwidth.

Just to let you all know that Rob has now successfully moved his site over to the classicamiga.com servers, so it will continue to live into the future and be preserved. He has created a great site that deserved to continue and be enjoyed by fans of this great game.

It can be reached at the usual address http://www.moonstonetavern.co.uk

For some reason it was very slow to load here which I traced to :

Code:
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://pub40.bravenet.com/counter/code.php?id=370279&usernum=3395303637&cpv=2">
I recommend you migrate as much of this "bravenet.com" stuff as you can.

Thanks for that info Alexh. It definitely does seem that anything loading from the bravenet.com site is slow to load. Especially the message board. It is never good to have scripts loading into a site that rely on them being hosted on an external server location. I will pass this on to Rob to see if he can move some of these scripts over to the local server, or if I can help him develop alternatives for the site.

Very pleased to say this has now been sorted - many thanks to Classicamiga! Also a huge thank you to everyone else who was prepared to help, or offer advice. The Tavern lives on!

Now all we need is a real life Moonstone taverna! Hot blondes/brunettes serving ale... we can all dress up as knights and sit round a big table whilst two girls get busy mud wrestling on the middle of the table or with some oil of course... have a big fat turkey in the middle too so we can eat merrily and a big fat duck!

Have some A500's on the outer tables so we can play moonstone when drunk and even throw some axes Heimdall style at some pig tails
