MozillaZine Forums Temporarily Offline

Saturday April 26th, 2003

Due to a large increase in traffic in recent weeks, MozillaZine's bandwidth usage has risen dramatically. We're currently working with our excellent hosts, American Data Technology, Inc., to find a new hosting solution that can accommodate MozillaZine's growing popularity. In the meantime, we've disabled the MozillaZine Forums, which accounted for much of the site's data transfer. This should reduce our bandwidth usage and also eliminate the MySQL errors that many of you have experienced recently. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will endeavour to get the forums up and running again as soon as possible. Thanks to all our readers for your continued support.

Sourceforge sounds like a good choice. Anybody paying the retail price that American Data Technology is advertising on their website needs a wake up call. There are much better deals out there, just run a search on google to find them. For instance I just moved my domain, to a host in California, that provides up-to-date versions of mysql w/myadmin, php, perl, 300 email accounts, control panel with lots of options, 30 gigs of transfer bandwidth a month, 500 mbs of storage, Red Hat, and they charge $7.95 per month for all that. Compare that to American Data Technology: $49 per month 100 mbs, and 30 email accounts.
