New ownership

Postby Gavpedz » 12 Jan 2009, 14:38

Hello all i hope you are all well and enjoying your forums.

I am writing this as some of you may know i have been looking to move on from phpbbhosts.co.uk to spend more time with my family.

I have now found someone who is familiar with our hosting script and has experience in using it he will continue phpbbhosts.co.uk so don't panic all your forums are safe.

So as of today sander is the owner and admin of phpbbhosts.co.uk i will of course come on once in a while to help or just to say hello.

I hope you all like the new admin. please all make him feel welcome and welcome him. Please bare in mind it may take him a little while to find his way around. as the way i have it set up might be slightly different to what he has.

So from me Welcome sander enjoy!

Thanks Gavpedz.

I'm dutch and have a smaal internet company.
I'm the owner of 123forum.nl (5000 phpbb2 forums) and forum-xl.nl (1500 phpbb3 forums).

I have made already one change and thats the rss feed.
I manage all support requests via Google reader so:
rss.php
Is now in my rss reader.

Your forums do also have a rss feed already:
http://longwaydown.phpbbhosts.co.uk/rss.php

The next months I try to combine the best things of my forums together.
So add free forums or add your own domain..

Will I notice anything?
I'll hope not.
But we have to transfer the domain name and the hosting..
Maybe this will cause some down time.

Feel free to post some questions!

Hi Sander,

Hello and Congratulations! Thanks to Gav for all his hard work & I hope things continue successfully.

Just a small request that if there is any expected down time that we have sufficient notice to warn our members in advance.

Do you have any specific plans for these forums? Any enhancements/changes/extra features/price changes?

Kind regards,

Iain

Yes of course :-)
This is my international forumhost.

-So I give forum owners the choice of multople domains. .DE .FR .INFO .COM.
-I have a lot of experience with google apps.
At namecheap.com you can buy your own .info domain for around $3,- first year.
Point it to your forum and use google apps for email and other webpages.

At this moment I do not have that many mods because it is difficvult to modify all styles at every upgrade.
Maybe it is worth to outsource the modification of 100 styles If I combine the syles from phpbbhosts.co.uk and my dutch forums.

-In NL I have a top ranking in google for "gratis forum" . I will work on the ranking in google uk for phpbbhosts.co.uk.

thats it I think.
