Hi,

The donation based web hosting at 1btchost.com will no longer be accepting new customers and existing accounts will be not renewed.
This is due to repeated targeted hacking of my site and the sites of my customers.

I ran this service on a not-for-profit basis and I cannot supply the resources needed to guarantee security against a determined attacker.

Since I started this service a year ago, a lot of other providers have joined the bitcoin community, so the loss of my service is no real biggie.

It was good while it lasted.

A warning to other providers perhaps.

dM

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!
