I don't think that it would hurt to link off to a document explaining Ron's
position to prospective hostees who don't recognise the business name or
trust the ex-profit.com thing.

i.e., a brief version of what Ron has written below, definitely including:
"The evolt.org web sites and mail lists are running from the same data
center that the affiliate hosting is provided from."


> NetWorth Enterprises, Inc. is a company that has provided consulting and
> custom software for many years to the mortage banking industry, mostly
> the top 10 mortgage companies.  They have a very good name and
> reputation in that industry.  They began moving into internet services
> two to three years ago.  They are a current reseller of my companies
> hosting services.
> This means that my company will be managing, supporting and servicing
> any hosting that comes in on this program and that I will be very
> involved myself to provide the best that can be provided.  I like to
> talk to our customers and help them in any way I can.
> I am a founding member of evolt.org and my company hosted the mail lists
> for the first year evolt.org existed.  Then evolt.org got it's own
> servers and hosted the lists and sites with services paid for by Dan
> Cody.  A few months ago those services were no longer available and my
> company has been providing the co-location services for evolt.org's
> servers for the past two months.  The evolt.org web sites and mail lists
> are running from the same data center that the affiliate hosting is
> provided from.
> Affiliate hosting programs had been mentioned in fund raising
> discussions.  I talked to my brother, the owner of NetWorth Enterprises,
> Inc., about it.  I told him about evolt.org, it's mission and the need
> for fund raising.  He was impressed with evolt.org and offered to
> provide the affiliate program, build the site to support on-line signups
> and get things working to provide funding for evolt.org.  The site is
> not typical of hosting companies and the current domain name was
> registered and not in use.  It was originally thought the domain name
> fit the need, money for evolt.org with very little effort, just change
> hosting providers.  It is now obvious that was a mistake, and it will be
> changed, but it will take a little time.
> We have built servers for linux hosting with CPanel web based site
> management software to allow each site secure management capability for
> name based and/or IP based hosting, email accounts, stats (3 packages
> available, capable of adding more on customer request), sub-domain and
> parked domain support, web based file manager, web based management of
> file and directory access privileges, raw access log download, mysql
> database support with phpmyadmin, domain cron job set up and
> maintenance, 3 shopping carts, frontpage 5 extensions and several other
> site support features.
> We do not have any web based site management on the the windows servers
> yet, but can host on Win 2000 servers.
