Who is Hosting?

Postby David W » 14 Dec 2018, 00:11

This is about our discussion site in general.

As I understand it, Pieter used the phpBB software to form this discussion forum.

At the same time, he found a "web host" for this forum. That software runs on that web host, right? And the web host stores all of our postings, right?

What is the web host for this forum?

(If you post in response, please explain as much as possible, including the web host's contact information and its "IP address" if you know it.)

Thanks for looking!

I believe it was hosted on Pieters company server.

As he had a business partner he has allowed it to continue at the moment but I am sure one day it will have to disappear

Luc has all the knowledge of what might happen

Correct.

And the domains expire in two days time, on the 1st of January. I did contact a few people with the question what to do, but never received any reaction.

I'll make sure database and docroot is properly archived, so if someone is interested in the forum and the data, please contact me at harro.verton<at>flexcoders.co.uk.

It will be disappointing to see it go.

Contacted a friend who is in IT... we'll see what he suggest...
How to transfer ownership of domain could get an issue...

Alright... he answered pretty quickly 8-)

We'll need access data, SSH access to the old server, software and sql dump, etc...
Who can provide me/us with this?

I think that the name of the domain is www.my-mc-phoenix.com and that Pieter is probably the registered owner of it. If that domain accidentally "expires" then this web site would disappear. (No chance then to send even a personal message here.)

One option might be to pay Mister Harro Verton, Pieter's former business partner, to continue ownership of this domain temporarily. Is he in Holland, or in the UK? (Does he work for the following company? https://flexcoders.co.uk/ )

Who knows how to send money from North America to Mister Harro in Europe? Or to pay Luc for serving as our middle man? (Harro has given us his email.)

There seem to be companies willing to help one of us buy that domain and transfer ownership. (Use your search engine online to look for a topic such as "Domain registration". )

For what it is worth, I found the following info about ownership of this domain. (I do not claim to know what it all means and would ask others to help us interpret it.)

I wouldn't have the slightest problem with an annual PayPal membership fee/donation...
Domain: about €39,-/anno
Hosting: about €19~29,-/month (depending on traffic)
Unknown are license fees, updates, service costs...
