Well, it's getting close to website payment time. And once again both of the webhosts sites are a 99% non-functional 404 extravaganza so uh.. yeah.

I might not even be able to pay for the site, despite having the money.

Just in case this turns out to be a disaster, does anyone know of any decent webhosts that can keep this site up on a.. "mid level" package for around $100 dollars a year ($10 for domain)? And how would I even transfer all of this stuff anyhow?

Hopefully I don't have to worry about all that.. but it would be nice to have a plan B.

Time to archive twitter thread and couple others
>> No. 6042 ID: da3bb9
Oh shit. You do have a recent backup of the database, right? Right? ;_;

Helma has some priceless stuff that really can't be found anywhere else.
>> No. 6043 ID: 9b302f
>>6042

If it goes down, it wont be for another month or so. Plenty of time to archive!
>> No. 6044 ID: dc714d
remember to CTW threads you can't bear to lose even if you think we are doing fine.
>> No. 6045 ID: 9b302f
Making a backup right now.

Looking at possibly moving to lithium hosting, I've been seeing a lot of good things about them.
>> No. 6047 ID: 9b302f
Maybe not.

There's no password on the Ventrilo server anymore, by the way.

So what exactly do you mean by your initial post?

Last year the site was shut down because they never sent me a bill. It's time to pay again, and they haven't sent me a bill. I finally found one of their working sites, and asked for an invoice. They basically said "It will come eventually" but yeah.. I don't know.

Are you on shared or dedicated hosting? Have you considered a VPS?
>> No. 6096 ID: 9b302f
>>6095

Pretty sure I'm on shared right now.

I'm really bad at website stuff so I'm not sure what a VPS is.
>> No. 6097 ID: da3bb9
>>6095
Yes, it's a shared host.

Though I'm not sure why you mentioned VPS hosting? How would that specifically apply to this case or help?
>> No. 6186 ID: 4cc9d6
Good news: Hosting has been paid for without issue.

Bad news: The domain hasn't been renewed, because despite me giving them the money and it going through, they haven't credited it to my account and there's literally no way I can contact them about this because all of their emails are broken.

Brace for possible downtime.

i-is the site still down??
>> No. 6194 ID: 6d8120
>>6186
Apparently some people are having problems accessing helma.us now, but it still resolves for me - and I tried with 3 different DNS providers.
>> No. 6195 ID: 4cc9d6
I'll try my best to get the site back up by the end of the week.

This whole thing has really been a nightmare..
>> No. 6196 ID: fe0213
>>6194

DNS is broken for sure. any DNS host still handing out records for helma.us is running on fumes and will break sooner rather than later.
>> No. 6197 ID: 4cc9d6
>>6196

Yeah the domain's technically gone. I gotta make some decisions here.

Transferring a domain is going to be interesting considering I can't even contact them.
>> No. 6198 ID: 4cc9d6
The situation might be resolved. Expect the site to possibly be back later today or tomorrow.
>> No. 6206 ID: f9446d
>>6198

yep, your DNS is fixed.
>> No. 6207 ID: 6d8120
>>6198
That was fast. Slower ISPs didn't even purge helma.us from their DNS records yet!
>> No. 6474 ID: 9395a4
Helma.us DNS is broken again.
>> No. 6476 ID: 4fd50a
>>6474
Ugh. I was wondering why it was down.

It seems like it's fixed now though.
