Website Moved

Comcast stopped providing websites in November of 2015. The new location went live in February of 2016. It is essentially unchanged, just relocated. I actually started to move it in August but ran into issues with alternate hosting sites. I needed one that allowed lots of files, search engine spidering and FTP file transferring. X10hosting provided all of my needs. Actually, I am better off after the move because I was able to consolidate the Byethost portion into the same X10hosting site. I am considering converting from free to a paid site with X10hosting and am waiting for them to reoffer an in between product. Hopefully soon.
