    It seems that the plague which has been killing off so many big gaming networks lately has cought up with our host, eUniverse, as well.
    We have until the 15th this month (next Friday) to get off their servers. As you can imagine, this brings up a few issues...
    I've looked around the web a bit but most of the networks suitable for our needs either seem to be only a short way from closing, or aren't accepting any new websites for hosting because it just doesn't pay off any more. (Their wording.)
    Obviously neither are of any use to us. Since moving a website the size of Sorcerer's Place is a tremendous task (I won't even begin to start thinking how much time it'll take to move our message boards alone), I'm looking for a stable network that will be able to host us for at least a year. Hoping for anything more these days is rather utopian anyway.

    Here is a list of must-haves if you're thinking of taking us aboard:

    - ability to host our domain name sorcerers.net (goes without saying)
    - Linux server (UBB requirement)
    - up to 1000 MBs of space (I don't think we're above 500 right now, but we're growing constantly)
    - unlimited bandwidth (within reason)
    - full CGI support with Perl on server
    - direct FTP access to our domain root (for website updating/uploading purposes only)
    - e-mail aliases

    These are our core requirements, anything more you can offer is a bonus. On our part, we are willing to display:

    a) standard size banners on top and bottom of every page of the website
    b) standard size banner on top of each html of our message boards
    c) anything else you can come up with that isn't too much (like those gigantic Gamespot banners) or pointless (pop-ups that everyone hates and no one bothers to read) can be discussed

    If you are interested and think you can provide us with everything we need, please mail me with details at [snip].
