Since in the past we have had “a major outage for an extended period of time,” would it be possible to have another site we could go to in order to find out when this site might return on-line? I am not a member of Facebook so that is not good for me, but maybe someone might be able to start an LLF Interruption of Service thread over at HTLAL and keep us advised in that way. HTLAL is where I went looking this time, but I didn’t know where to look for a message.
Point being that if we are off line for 3-4 days or more we may start losing both hope and membership, etc.
Actually I never use HTAL anymore and it never occurred to me to post anything there. However, one thing I'm trying to work on is part of your suggestion by perhaps not in the way you intended.

I'm looking into some kind of "Disaster Recovery" server built on the Amazon services. This would be a backup server identical to this one, which we could simply switch over to in the event of an emergency and there would only be a 15-20 minute disruption at most. This is probably the most cost effective way to keep the service going and wouldn't be affected by this hosting because it would be on a second platform.
