As a corollary to what WS just said, all URLs to web sites that have not been extended will be redirected to the Ultimate Ungulate website where everyone can look at beautiful pictures of and read about majestic hoofers such as Moose, Elk and Deer.

Oh damn, I didn't even realise the hosting was coming down until I had to get a screenshot of my website. :(

Where will I host my Dialga collection page now?? D:

I'm having issues at the moment with my server ever since my sister managed to break the cpu fan after dropping something in through an open vent slot on the back. I tried to replace it last weekend when I went home for a family event, but it turns out the replacement fan I got didn't fit >.<
I won't have time until June once I'm back home to fix it, so that means a bit over a month (5-6 weeks) before I can deal with that.

Otherwise the server is nearly completely configured. I still have a little bit more stuff to stick on first though...

any way to get a back up of the files we had hosted.   I just now learned the webhosting was going down, so I didnt get my files.

I didn't know I could request an extension.  Heck, I didn't even know hosting was gonna end.  T.T  Is there anything I can do at all?  My site wasn't backed up 'cause I lost my harddrives.

Hello
I'm sorry to see furtopia stop its web hosting. I'm now running my website on my own server. If you guys need some help I could help.

Hi,

Is there any chance that my old site at: http://ardilla.furtopia.org/ can be redirected to my new location at: http://radioardilla.blogspot.com/ ?

I still have the old url posted in numerous places from years back and if there's a way to have a url redirect that would be greatly appreciated by me.

Thanks.

I just want to let you know I'm feeling really, really, really guilty about not having the server even operational yet, as RL and odd fan size and defective fans have been standing in the way of me and getting my server ready D:

However, other RL circumstances are dictating that I /HAVE/ to get the server up my this weekend, so... hopefully everything goes smoothly. I'm going to have to migrate my own sites over. One step at a time though.

*Flails about happily*

YAY! I got a hosting control panel web interface set up! :3

It will probably be two weeks before I can begin taking people on in a case-by-case 'you are a test subject & this is not yet officially affiliated with furtopia.org ' sort of manner.
I'm moving my own stuff over momentarily.

Ok, well minor time-related setback: turns out I have to reinstall, and downloading the ISO took forever :P but anyways, no problem, will reinstall tomorrow, installing the control panel is fast, and then setting up the dyndns -> my ns hackiness should not take too long (can't get a static IP, so this is the next best alternative for me). Then moving my stuff over which I got all backed up today.

Avan, I am curious to hear from you about how reliably using dyndns with a web server actually works.  One of the multiple reasons why I didn't try to go the route of running my own web server was because I couldn't get a static IP address from my ISP either, and I didn't want to risk my website's availability with something like that.

As a side note, a reliable electricity supply was an even larger concern to me, since my surrounding area suffered no less than a half-a-dozen storm-related major power outages last month alone, and my circuit breaker box trips occasionally on top of that.  Until I can afford a UPS that can provide the kind of emergency power that I need to safely shut all of my systems down (which is a tall order since I have a lot of computers and servers that I regularly use that really could use the protection), trying to run something 24/7/365 out of my house is out of the question.  There is just too much of a risk that the server would go down hard and risk damage the file system and/or hardware.  Over the past few years I have already lost a router, a wireless access point, and most tragically an SGI Indy workstation due to lightning storms (despite all of those pieces of equipment being on decent surge-protectors at the time), so I don't want to ever risk losing an expensive server too!
