Utopia is offline

Hello everybody,

as you've probably seen already, Utopia is currently offline.
This entry shall explain why.

Yesterday when I got home I had received an e-mail from my host. Here's an extract of that e-mail:

Hi there,

Your account is hosted on a 'shared hosting server' where other clients have a website hosted on the same server as your website.

Our systems have detected that your website has been causing massive server load for a prolonged period.

We acknowledge your website is very popular and that the high server load which is being created is caused by the success of your domain and work!

We would like to continue hosting your websites, however this is no longer possible on a 'shared hosting server'. We need you to consider upgrading your shared hosting to a Virtual Server or VPS.

As you can see, the site isn't offline because I wanted it to and it surely won't stay offline very long. However I can't bring it back online now since I need more money for this ( $19.99 to be more precisely ).

I can't afford this now, that's why the site will have to stay offline a little longer (I'm only talking about weeks, not months or years).

Thank you very much for your understanding.

If you want to help to bring the site back online, I would love you forever.

Please don't be angry. Utopia will be back.

u_ù $19.99 per month is a lot of money! O_O this host server is too expensive! i would like help you too but now i can't i'm out of money ç_ç... but i can suggest you a good hosting service http://www.aruba.it gives unlimited space for €24 per year.
The 24€ belong to a shared hosting account, right?
You see, $19.99 is expensive, you're right, but the site can't stay on a shared hosting account.
In fact, the site you suggested would charge 49€ per month for the same service I have now.

The problem is the site got suspended because it took to much RAM of the amount that is shared between all users. This way it won't be a good idea to just change to another shared hosting account.

The way it is now, Utopia won't have to share anything with other members.
