    The site is undergoing some major changes at the moment, to cope with the bandwidth and optimization due to how busy the site is getting.

    I am in the process of optimizing all database tables (over 500 tables, some containing over 1 million rows of data) to make the site run faster.

    The reason the site has been down is due to the site overloading the server.

    I am in the process of buying a dedicated server, which costs £60 per month. I am hoping that you will be able to help me pay for this to support Audi-Sport.net and make it even better.

    Please bear with me, there maybe more downtime ahead, but rest assured I am working around the clock to get it back up and running as soon as possible !

    not big enough Im afraid, I need 1 gig of web space and audi sport moves on average 80gb per month, plus the database size is coming close to 500meg. Also the load this site puts on a server is immense, so it needs a proffessional hosting package
