Call me stunned... but part of the reason that I have stuck with AOL all these years is the free server space for members to upload their own sites.
As of 31.10.08 all members.aol.com/ are to be deleted. I imagine that as well as the hassle for all their members with either Hometown or ftp sites, this may cause a breakdown in the status of many of the rings.
And for anyone else who is perplexed by this posting, let me assure you it is real. Emails went to hometown and journal users on 10.01 and a posting was made to their blog 9.30. Both letters and instructions on back up can be found in the People Connection Blog http://www.peopleconnectionblog.com/
I'm not saying it's the ONLY option, but it's one good one. Anyone ELSE have any recommendations?
HELP!! I've been storing images with AOL for years, they've deleted everything. Can anyone suggest where I can go for "big time" storage? I don't mind paying obviously if it's reasonable. I'm stuck!!!
How much storage are you talking about? You can try the simplenet link at the bottom of the page. Their support is very good (human in the noc 24/7 which has come in handy more than once).
Thanks! I need a fair bit, besides webrings images here I have others plus loads of Top Site Lists, Search Engines etc. And... there isn't just me, my other half and a couple of the kids are all involved so it works out to be a fair amount of space needed.
I think I might have found a place that only charges $1.95 a month for 999000mb Storage Space and the same for
Monthly Bandwidth. We can all sign up for new accounts if needed as I have no idea at all how much bandwidth we use.
The fun part is going to be changing all the URLs - what joy grrrr.
hehe. moving is a pain in general! Good luck, sounds like a decent deal. Hopefully your search engine ranks will come back quickly.
