  • Now that our website has been officially launched, and already received a fair amount of visits (thanks to everyone who visited!), it's time to find a new and better web host. Our current host, DomainDLX, is only a temporary solution because they don't allow much traffic. Is there anyone who could offer me a better (free) hosting service, or send me some useful information? The new host should support ASP and database access, and should also allow more bandwith than DomainDLX does. Please contact us if you think you can help. Thanks in advance!
