DUE TO FREE HOST RESTRICTIONS THIS WILL NOT WORK AT THIS TIME.


if the club is interested in switching the host where the website is located please let me, KD5BFM, know and i will make the transition. the existing site is located on GoDaddy's servers which have become very slow to load, i have done all that i can do to speed up the site on their servers to no avail. GoDaddy's official position is if you want it faster, pay for dedicated servers. Which is extremely expensive. This site that i setup as a clone of the original, with minor layout changes, has all of the same information, images, and database is currently running on a free hosting plan and does have some limitations due to it being free but is much faster to load. this host has plans that start around $20.00 a month. The existing site on GoDaddy's server takes approx 20-30 seconds to load on a 200mbs connection speed, this site takes approx 3 seconds to load. In my opinion if we are trying to bring people in to the club and drive interest in the world of ham radio we need the site to load quickly to hold the visitors attention.
