    Most of the big name hosting companies usually offer low quality servers (or oversold servers) and their services are way overpriced. GoDaddy and HostGator probable being the worst of all.

    I've had good experiences with SiteGround and Namecheap though. Namecheap in particular offers great value considering their low prices.

    For a forum like this, most (or all) ads will be shown randomly based on keywords found in posts.

    Installed an add blocker but it slowed the site down even more.
    Have never used Chrome. I’m not all that computer literate so a friend who’s a senior server technician for Telstra has set up my Macs which all run the latest version of Safari via a Sun ‘Solaris’ box whose function I have next to no understanding of.

    Then how come most of the adds are directed at straight men suffering from the delusion they can take care of twelve women? That ‘keyword software’ needs development.

    If the adblocker is AdBlock Plus, you can expect exponentially slowing down of the website AND of your computer. I'm using uBlock Origin and whether it's turned on for LGBTChat or not, the loading speed of the forum is the same.

    But Audrey said the admin doesn't care much about the forum, so I don't see it moving to a better hosting anytime soon. Though looking at the US and EU prices of hosting and the .net domain, I feel like crying - the greed of the hosting companies is like never before, some of them even require high prices with excluded VAT. I just checked the best Bulgarian hosting company and their prices include VAT which makes them almost twice cheaper than StopDaddy. :D

    Can I ask why? Who exactly are ‘admin’ ? Is that the collective body of moderators or someone else?

    It's James Dean. The photo is fake (I think), but the Dean-Brando romance was allegedly real.

    Well, the keywords "men", "women", "dating", "sex", etc., are posted often here, so that would explain the showing of those ads.

    You can get the first year of hosting for 29 bucks on Namecheap. You can host unlimited websites, they offer solid state drives, free SSL certificates, free CDN, and a bunch of other features.

    I've used their hosting for my websites (and clients' websites) and I couldn't be happier with their service.

    Your response to this question has mysteriously vanished from the server. The member you listed interestingly has made no posts according to their info page. I suspect we’d have a real fight on our hands trying to move this forum given it appears someone has a vested interest in keeping it running on medieval software for their commercial advantage (?)

    Now that's truly odd. The post below has re-appeared.
    Never seen anything like that happen before.
    Maybe I'm smoking too much weed?

    And how do we imagine that little encounter went? Flip Flop or who on top? Steam is coming out of my ears just thinking about it.
