Hello DHS International User

Despite generous contributions from a small number of users and the
commitment of the Directors, DHS International has been forced into a
position where the current free services can not continue in the
present form. With the downturn in dot.com investment and advertising
DHS International has been running at a substantial loss for some time
which the Directors can no longer continue to subsidise.

To enable the services to continue we are therefore requesting a
compulsory contribution be made by all users of our services. This
will be a small amount of $5.00 USD which will enable the services to
be maintained for another year if enough users support us. If any
user does not wish to make the contribution or no longer requires our
services, they need not do anything. Any account which does not have
contribution information recorded will be purged (deleted) from our
system by the end of July. All contributions must be received by the
14th
of July to avoid accounts being purged.

Details on how to make a contribution are at:
http://www.dhs.org/support/contribute.shtml
and can be made by paypal to admins@dhs.org.

If additional hostnames are required by users these can be obtained by
making an additional contribution of $5.00 USD for each two extra
hostnames. Your account will be adjusted with the new hostname limits
when
payments are processed. There may be a short delay in the hostname
limits
being adjusted due to the need for some manual processing.

All new registrations will be limited to two hostnames per account,
current
accounts will retain present hostname limits.

Please make sure your account ID and account contact email address is
sent with your confirmation of payment to admins@dhs.org to ensure the
correct matching of payment to account.

We are sorry the services could not be maintained totally free, it was
our intention but circumstances no longer permit us to do so.

If leaving our services, thank you for your participation.

Any questions on this matter may be directed to myself dassa@dhs.org,
please include the subject line "DHS Compulsory Contribution" to allow
for filtering and faster responses.

All the best.

This mail was only sent to email addresses listed as the contact
address for accounts
registered at http://www.dhs.org. If you believe you should not have
received this mail
you do not need to do anything. All accounts without a response will
be deleted and any
information regarding your email address or account will be purged from
our system.


Have any other users of this service gotten this? What are your thoughts? I love my hostname (lorax.wox.org) and would like to keep it, but I'm going to e-mail the guy to ask him if this is going to be a frequent occurance.

Got the same message. Not sure what I am going to do but $5 US is not that much so I might pay.

I'll probably chip in a bit more - a regular domain is $20/year (plus a $75 registration fee), so I might do $10 or so.

Or at least it was last time I checked.

i've been using dhs.org (http://hiro-tan.dhs.org) for several years without paying anything. i feel kind of bad about it; this message will finally get me off my butt to reimburse the dhs folks for their help.
