As of January 18th, it looked like the only content that was on the site was a web ring, and links to other sites:

John, if you clicked on the car in the middle you would find the project pages. Not the most discoverable design, but there is content there at least ;-)

I understand as I just re-upped the FieroPaceCar page for $277.00 [3 years] for pretty much myself to show others about the car and the vins. I make no money on it and this has been up for 7 years now out of my pocket. Rick B

And for the same reasons.

You're getting ripped off unfortunately.. for as little traffic as your page generates you could host it for $12 a year.

If you guys want lower hosting costs, I can host your sites on a vps. That's why I asked the OP if he still had the files. If you are interested, shoot me a pm, so as to not spam the topic. GoDaddy is a complete rip off.

I cringed when I saw almost $300 above for hosting a small site for 3 years.... What I can't understand is why is Go Daddy ripping you off so bad. I use Go Daddy to host FieroStuff.com. This is directly copied from my invoice:

Hosting - Web - Economy - Linux - US Region - 1 year (recurring)
Term: 1 year(s)
Name: fierostuff.com
Item number: 42002-1
Quantity: 1

Subtotal:$24.06
Shipping:-
Tax:-
Total:$24.06

The plan is their lowest and most basic. Still, It is unlimited bandwidth and 100 Gigs of space. Far more than enough for a small site like yours.

You can check out the plan I purchased on this page, the first column. I paid for the year and got the discount you see above, instead of $5 a month.

Are these "introductory" prices or what?

I belong to an amateur video production club. We have a rudimentary web site that has basically no traffic. Our host site contract needs to be renewed (after our introductory period ends), and the cheapest price offered is $6.95 per month with a three year contract. I suspect we'd be nuts to sign up at this price.

Comments, advice?
