All things are possible until they are proved
impossible - and even the
impossible may only be so, as of now."
Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973)
To all our friends at CureZone;
We sincerely apologize for the aggravations you've probably encountered over the past few days trying to access CureZone. As the fastest growing alternative health information and education site in the world, CureZone has been gaining in popularity and growing in leaps and bounds. However, like most growth, it has come with some growing pains.
The hosting company who has provided CureZone's home for so long has finally had to throttle back, rather severely, on our bandwidth. We're getting so many hits and having so many wonderfully informative interactive posts that the other sites being hosted by the same company are suffering from a lack of bandwidth. Our providers have had to cut back on the flow for CureZone in order to provide enough for their other customers. Basically, CureZone has become too big for the small pond that was hosting it.
Until we can find a new home with the bandwidth we need, CureZone access and activity will be very severely curtailed. Instead of the flood of information and people, only a small trickle can come through at a time. CureZone must find a new hosting home if we're going to be able to continue providing the information, education, and community which we've all come to know, to rely on, to love.
Process of moving CureZone to an new web server will take from 24 to 48 hours. During this time, you will not be able to access curezone forums. Moving of the site is only one of the problems. We also have to move our domain name CureZone.com to a new server, and process of moving a domain usually takes from 48 to 72 hours (3 days). So, we can't promise that you will be able to access standard features of curezone.com before March 1st 2004.
Dusan and others have been working tirelessly to find a new home for CureZone, one which can handle our prodigious bandwidth requirements now and as we grow, yet still fall within a reasonable cost range. As a non-commercial site of volunteers, our affordable range is rather low. Our research into reliable, affordable, and abundant bandwidth has been eye-opening.
Which brings us to the delicate matter of donations. Over the past 12 months, only 25 people have made direct financial donations. While we greatly appreciate the money that has been donated, it is painfully obvious that it is not quite enough to provide the services needed to continue to host and grow as we have been.
We need your help. We don't want to be in this position, asking for funds, but it is precisely because of how helpful and beloved CureZone has become that we find ourselves in this situation. Please, weigh in your hearts the value you place on CureZone and the impact it continues to provide.
Any amount, no matter how small, is so needed and appreciated. Please join with us in keeping the dream alive. We have links to PayPal.com and to Amazon.com which can be used to make donations to CureZone. Any donations will be directly deposited into our treasury, and will be used for finding a bigger, better home for hosting CureZone.
Also, every purchase you make at
Amazon.fr ... if you surf there from the links on this page, will
garner CureZone a percentage of the sale. Please try to make all your
Amazon purchases from the CureZone "click through"- it costs you nothing
and helps us tremendously in our efforts to keep the site alive. Just
bookmark the CureZone page and call the bookmark "Amazon"
as an easy reminder.
"Life is the series of challenges to be met and
"The world we live in: doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice,
psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroy
information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy
freedom." - Michael Ellner ( HEAL )
