    Front page on BoingBoing can’t help out any…

    Why not use a generic webhost? I use Dreamhost for most of my stuff. Just over $100 a year and they offer tons of bandwidth. There are tons of hosts that offer the same. Its not 1990 anymore.

    doh..
    Its not the 1990s anymore.

    wishing the cry for help had come sooner.

    You may be right about the birds, but the only other things you can hear from a patio at the Rarotonga are the sound of the wind and families in the pool area.

    I don’t see why you couldn’t put this up on something like google pages. It’s not perfect but it’s free

  8. David Herman says:

    Of course now that BB has linked to the site his bandwidth will go even higher….

    How is this in any way copyfight?

  10. Palilay says:

    Can you host my sites for free too please? I’m struggling in the economic crisis. Do I qualify for the boingboing bailout?

  11. Takuan says:

    of course… right after you, ah, “look after” the moderators. No mint jelly this time.

    Ummm, since it’s a fansite for a resort run by one of the worlds most evil empires…

    Why not ask disney (or the resort specifically) for some hosting/bandwidth?

    I like the guys email domain, @tikiman2001.net?
    From the sounds of this story, it would seem the site owner lives in the past; he seems to have gotten stuck in time a decade ago give or take a few years.

    I actually run a central Florida based web hosting company… http://www.ni-on.com/

    If it wasn’t for all the trees and tourists I could see the resort from my office! :P

  15. RaptorOne says:

    Oh yeah, and use the promo code BOINGBOING and save 10%.

    Nearlfreespeech is crazy cheap, and is what I would use. However since it is a homestead thing, I assume they are not HTML savvy. So I would suggest Google Apps on a domain and then uses pages on it. $10 a year for the domain name (with privacy service).

    I contacted the guy and offered him hosting and bandwidth. All he replied was that he had something in the works.
