Well there is a first time for everything while i appreciate the small amounts now and then we get from donators (thank you!) it's not enough to cover hosting costs. Our hosting is currently paid 100% until 12th Feb 2013 so we are all secure until then.

Currently hosting costs are usually paid out of my own pocket.

So I present our indiegogo campaign to pay our hosting costs so I can worry more about content and the new website than gathering money for hosting costs!

Not sure how this will go first time for me doing anything like this, so help if you can! :)

Update 1:
If you pledge at least £20 each pledger at this level will have ad-free browser for a whole year on the new website when it goes live - you will need to of course be logged in for that perk to work. Article taken from

Awesome thank you, please do keep spreading the word :D

If someone could reddit it as well I would appreciate it I don't want to put too much on reddit.

Jesus man, £600 for only 2 years of hosting? Seriously? Have you considered changing host away of these thieves?

You should anyways.

Its fully managed private server hosting (not shared hosting) with cpanel, if someone can find cheaper elsewhere I would love to see it for what I get including free 5gb daily data backup.

Its sad but there isn't any cheaper.

In comparison omgubuntu pays over $600 a month for theirs.

I should (hopefully) be able to participate again sometime soon, but I'd rather simply donate than use Indiegogo. So yeah. Expect me, or something. Might not be much, but every little bit helps. And I'll keep retweeting and sharing links as usual. :)
Also, I've heard good things about - but take it with a pinch of salt, coming from self-entitled (and quite a bit too certain of their skills and knowledge) fools. Further investigation required.
