Q: Why are you doing this?|
A: Because I want to make a simple free webhost that regular forum users could adjust to easily. A person can very easily migrate information on a project from a forum to this site.
Q: Are multiple accounts allowed?
A: Yes. You are allowed to have as many accounts as you can find serious use for. It is not okay, however, to create a lot of accounts without use for them - if you are found doing this you will be contacted by the administration and the unused accounts may be closed.
Q: I don't like any of the default skins! Can you make one for me?
A: Yes! Go over to the forums and go to the Feature Request forum, and post in the topic "Skin Requests." I am currently willing to take on all skin requests, though they may take me some time to fill dependant on the skin.
Q: Could you add feature X?
A: Maybe, maybe not. If you have an idea for a feature, please post it on the forums or get it to me through some other method. I'm always looking for new ideas for the host. Note that I may not actually add your feature, but your ideas count, and I will see what I can do to meet your needs.
Q: Could you remove advertisements from my site/give me an extra forum or an extra pages/other?
A: The software has these capabilities build in, however I currently have no system in place for actually paying for them. Please feel free to send me an email or an AIM message if you wish to discuss the possibility of obtaining a premium account.
Q: What software do your forums run off of?
A: A unique piece of software coded specially for this host. Originally the plan was to integrate the site with another board software and give users forums through that, but that plan ultimately failed. No board software I could find allowed for the amount of customization I wanted for each forum, and I realized coding my own forums would be easier and more appropriate for this use.
Q: How are you affording this?
A: As a college student, I was affording it out of my own pocket.
Q: How long has this taken to make?
Honestly, a very long time. I started this a few years ago when I was completely new to PHP. I have since redone a lot of what I originally coded. This host was my main project for a good few months of each of those years, so I'd say overall a year and a half or so went into the intial coding of it.
Q: How often are backups done?
A: This depends what you mean by backups. A few types of backups are done. The most important type to you will be Project Pages user accounts. These are backed up weekly at the moment - it may become more frequent in the future if I can find a better automation solution. The code behind Project Pages is backed up about monthly. This may seem not seem often enough, but the code behind Project Pages that is currently hosted is not modified that often. If I do modify it, I make sure any changes made are backed up.
Q: Can I use this site to host questionable content?
A: If I don't address it in the terms of service, it should be fine to create a site with that content here. If you are really nervous, feel free to contact an admin and ask if your site is okay, but generally if it's not against any laws or the terms of service, your answer will be yes.
Q: My question is not answered here
A: Feel free to email me with any questions, or to post them on the forums. The forum link is at the top, and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
