    The Other Site....

    Hello WHT.

    Before I started to use the WHT web site, I used to use the other site that contained web hosts. I cant remember the address because you just forwarded it to WHT (.com), and I never used its url again.

    I was just thinking how good that site would be now. I mean, you have 1000s of members and 100s of hosts. Get the site up again and then every host can then register themselves. They can even post special offers.... would be easy for people to search hosts instead of posting "i need....".

    In fact, you could intergrate the fourm as well... each host can have a mini fourm of there own...?

    Just a thought... apart from that, thanks for the very cool site.

    Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, I'm sure, but I believe that hostinvestigator is the site that grew into WHT. Check this:

    HI was a web hosting directory, the forum linked off it, and I believe the plan was to revamp HI, which never happened.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the big delay in replying. My computer was broken (physically!).

    Anyway, I would love to help revamp and re-lanuch HI. Just contact me with details that you were thinking of and any templates etc... and I will see what I can do. I really did love that site and so it would be cool to re-create it.

    Its function was replaced by WHT? Why not just start your own?

    I wouldn't say its function was replaced by the forum exactly. You'd have to ask Matt, but far as I know, it was taken down with the theory of being revamped and relaunched and that just never happened. I think Robert mentioned that another one was in the works.
