One year on, and the free hosting provided by Binil of Gigarocket still continues. Warm appreciation goes to Binil. Thank you Binil!
Quality of hosting is excellent. cPanel still rocks as ever.
During this year my favourite post4vps.com also closed its doors for hosting. So it makes the generosity of Binil’s cpanel hosting that much more meaningful. Every hosting business has a different reason for coming to an end. Post4vps owner thought he could not continue as he had discovered a possible (but not proven) exploit of three years before, and felt he could not provide the security of personal information that for him has always been a non-negotiable requirement. He then closed the doors. Sadly. That was the last active Forum I participated in in my many years of attending to discussion Forums.
I’d hoped that Fitkoh, a super out of the ordinary tech admin who had been posting at both post4vps.com and gigarocket, would carry on, but right at the time of post4vps.com closing, Fitkoh got a very busy day job. He did succeed in creating a discussion Forum – input.social/connect but I had to give up at the point where the Forum was totally taken over by spam bots, as so much the pattern has become when a Forum has been abandoned with no traffic on it any longer. Unfortunately I did not have sufficient admin power to kill the spam at its source, so had to give up eventually.
Well Gigarocket Forum is not completely at an end yet. The owner, Chris, has kept it open, so I’m still attending to the cleaning of spam. And now and then, like a fresh breeze, there is someone who registers and entertains with some decent discussion posts.
Not sure whether Binil will continue this great hosting beyond December, as he had informed us last December it would be for a year. Let’s see what is next for Gigarocket.
