I have a problem with timing -the webhost for my school website is finishing on Friday and currently I have nowhere to put it.
The issue is that the school dont want to pay for a whole year when the website is currently in re-design and when finished will be hosted by the company doing the designing.
This will hopefully be in the next few weeks. So can anyone suggest either very cheap hosting or somewhere where I can do it for about 3 months?
Bit of a desperate situation here - partly my fault, partly not.
*witch - ricocheting from crisis to crisis since 2001*
Would the company doing the re-design not temporarily host the existing site or at least a holding page?
You could always ask @EduTech very nicely. He does free hosting for schools doesn't he??
Don't know if the company would host it for now but I suspect not. Hadn't thought of @EduTech - will ask.
Has to go through SWGfL to change ips etc as well.
Oh, and according to my current provider the website is running an out of date version of drupal but it cannot be updated as they dont know what add-ons etc are being used - so I have got errors all over the place and had to take down a whole page.
The original developer says there are no extras or add-ons running on the site
The whole thing has been a bit of a pain really :(
As we're currently in the process of launching our shared and reseller hosting under a separate brand (whilst keeping dedicated and virtual hosting under veloxserv) I can highly recommend CSNewMedia.
@witch - I am more than happy to provide you with some hosting space until your new website is built. I can create you some space and we can get the files/databases moved over and then just need to change your WWW A Record to point to my IP Address.

Thanks James, that is very kind - I will let you know - now the boss has changed his mind about what is going on...again!
It seems that the company designing our website are happy to put up a splash page telling people the contact details and that there will be a new website coming soon - phew!
I think the head wants a bit of anticipation to build up before the launch of the new all-singing all-dancing site so he doesnt mind being without a website for a few weeks.
Dodged the bullet there :)
Thanks for your offers of help guys
