Luna Internet using punk.org.uk and worldhq.com
We got fucked over by person who controlled site, Luna Internet, rather than owner (Vicky). A sorry tale others may learn from and so the full story may be put online sometime. Our site and email access was removed unilaterally and most of website deleted with no forwarding pages. Relying on a favour costed us.

Some of these are word of mouth / referal hosting and do not offer a general hosting service to anyone who asks, but do try.

I manage a UML server myself so I too can offer web hosting under domain of choice with MySQL db, PHP etc. But little support as I am busy with my own projects and still getting to grips with it myself. But may drop UML to use cpanal based shared hosting for everything.


Yahoo Groups and the like

This section will move to a new page

Yahoo Groups (ex egroups, onelist and yahoo clubs) is getting yukkier and yukkier but a lot of political disscussion goes on email lists there. I recommend developing alternatives to yahoo groups (see below), Though bounce handling with yahoogroups is often easier for moderators than with self run list serve.. But for those of you who have allready signed up with yahoo to there terms and conditions and use yahoogroups here is a list of some of groups used.
