Help keep FORDification online and banner-free!



As of the beginning of July 2004, has moved off the server it had been on since it's inception in June 2003 to a regular commercial hosting server. This move was facilitated by the demise of the previous server, and the desire to be hosted by a professional facility which could provide site enhancements not available before.

Just so you know, the entire website is designed, maintained and funded by one person...myself. At the present time there is no outside help with any aspect of the site or it's maintenance and/or updating. All fees for it's hosting are paid out my pocket, because of my love of classic Ford trucks and my passion for website design. With this site I'm able to combine the two worlds, and hopefully help, inspire and inform my visitors.

This comes at a price, however. Website hosting isn't necessarily cheap. A simple webpage with a few pictures can easily be handled by any one of a hundred free hosting sites, but they aren't equipped to handle heavy traffic and often don't include the extras that really make a mediocre site into something you'd want to return to. get what you pay for. Since I wanted to have features not available on a free site, I've opted to crack open the wallet and lay down my money.

The addition of the Photo Galleries is one enhancement which I really felt the site needed to have. They will allow you to upload pics of your trucks, and I'll host them here for you. However, the increased server space used by the pictures and the increased bandwidth necessary for everyone to view them drives up the hosting costs.

Therefore, following the suggestions of some of the regular users of the FORDification forums, I've decided to accept donations via PayPal. All donations received will be put into a savings account I've set up specifically for the purpose of covering website-related expenses only. This includes website hosting, server space and bandwidth upgrades and any further expansion.

By no means is it mandatory (or even suggested) that you do so...this is completely voluntary on your part....but it will be greatly appreciated! If you prefer, you can also donate with a personal check. Scroll down for more info.

Thank you!

When you click a PayPal button above you will go to the PayPal site to enter your credit card information. Please enter your name and address into the shipping information data fields. This is how I can know who to thank. When your transaction is complete, PayPal will notify me with your name, contact information, and donation amount only. No other personal information will be transmitted.

PayPal does take a cut of what you send (so if you send me $20, I get $19.12; if you send $5, I actually get $4.55). There is never a service charge to you to donate.

About PayPal:
  • You set up an account with PayPal that is linked to a credit card. The account is password protected. This enables you to use PayPal to send and receive money to and from individuals and companies. PayPal has millions of customers, worldwide.

  • PayPal uses information encryption to communicate between your computer and theirs. This is shown by their URL which, when you enter sensitive information, starts with "https:" The "s" means secure. The Internet Explorer and Netscape browsers also show a sealed lock in the lower right hand corner of the screen.

  • They use the "Secure Sockets Layer" protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits. This is the safest communication method available and is the system used by banks.

  • The PayPal server "is heavily guarded both physically and electronically."
