Website Hosting and Security
« on: 21 Jan 2022 03:30PM »
........ so the bill for renewal of Go Daddy services is due at the start of March. After what happened yesterday I do feel that coming here saved me from completely going down the rabbit hole so whether people make donations or not Ouch Too will be here for another year.


If you are able to and wish to donate click here to donate using Paypal. If you don't have Paypal and have a Access All Areas membership I will sort a way for the option to pay by cheque.


The total cost for the coming year is £153.72 and donations will anonymous this time. As usual once the amount is achieved I will announce it and donations can stop.

Donations have reached £90 which amounts to £86.19 after Paypal fees thank you all  :biggrin: :heart:


As far as hosting goes it will just be a matter of renewing the plan so I don't need to install anything. The SSL certificate will need installing and I have to remind myself how to do that from notes I made a year ago. It will be okay. If A message comes up saying Ouch Too is unsafe you will need to continue through that page. If that happens it will be resolved quickly because I simplified much of the website stuff last year.

Will that be enough for the coming year Sunshine or are more donations needed?

DD,


I am okay with getting donations up to the cost of running Ouch Too for the coming year, but I think if someone has already made a donation then it is okay to leave it as that.


Go Daddy are sneaking in that there prices do change depending on offers and when you make an order so it might cost a bit more than I said in the opening post but I am okay with that because I can put in £100.


I will be back with exact figures when I have got it done.  :f_smiley: :thumbsup: :62_62:

I know that last year's donations retained a credit on the year ahead so I am hopeful that we'll reach this year's final.

Here is the link to last years Donations thread https://www.ouchtoo.org/index.php?topic=10779.0


Fiz, you are right in a way but also wrong because I renewed the SMF message editor prolicense. I do seem to remember there was one year about £80 was carried forward and another where someone donated mid year.


DD,  :thumbsup:

Okay so that is bought and paid for  :f_smiley:


I did not get any discounts on the main stuff  :f_sadface: but the SSL offer was 1 year for £69.99 or two years for £44.99 each year


RTF balance is £86.19 and the total bill is £227.96 so I paid the difference  :f_smiley:


The original amount I quoted did not include  a couple of things eg Privacy and Protection means anyone can't just look up my name and address which is attached to the website.


The Invoice is here  :see_attachment:
