I think it's a good idea.
Curiously, you mention downtime. Is it network-specific or server-specific?
If it's server specific, you're (or the company) doing something wrong.
Correct me if i'm wrong, but it seems as though you're just serving data for this LOTR site.
I'm thinking you're running Redhat with a control panel.
First thing: Lose Redhat, lose the control panel.
If you require linux, go with Slackware or something that can be stripped down.
If not, go FreeBSD. You will seriously notice a difference in performance and uptime.
If you're looking for offers, you will need to post to the Request forum.
