surrendering domain zaurus.org.uk - any takers?
« on: August 31, 2021, 05:59:04 pm »
I've had the domain a long time but I've not had a Zaurus for a long time (my last working one was stolen long ago), so I was thinking it's probably time to give up the domain, ideally by handing it over to someone else who will run a website on it and host the downloads I've stored there a long time.

I checked the web access logs and the only access has been search engine bots.

I just don't want the domain to fall into the hands of advertising spam services.

There's four weeks left before it needs renewing. If you want it, create a login on Godaddy and I will get them to transfer it you your account.

p.s. I'd even be willing to give you shell access so you could manage the website, by logging into my VM hosting the web service, until you sorted out your own host. I use lowendbox blog to find cheap hosting.

I think that the best solution would be to host the files and pages on our elsix.org account, since we don't to pay any hosting fee for that. Ideally we would have all the Zaurus-related feeds and webpages there, so that we have everything for the Zaurus in one place. I already have some archived pages hosted here on the OESF account, my plan is to move them to Elsix too. I still need to find a suitable CMS to provide a web interface for all this material, though. SeaFile looks promising, Nextcloud seems like overkill for a simple file storage interface.
