GOJEEP website to close down

Not sure if anyone knows of my site or still uses it, but the website www.go.jeep-xj.info or www.jeep-xj.info will be closing down next month.

I have bought the domian http://willyshotrod.com for my current build but have made a sub domain for the XJ part in case it is still of use. It is replaced by http://gojeep.willyshotrod.com

Cheers Marcus.

Re: GOJEEP website to close down

if you still have control over the old domain, you can do an HTTP redirect to the new one, pretty simple thing

Re: GOJEEP website to close down

Glad to see it was still being used. I will leave a redirect for as long as I can on the index page but the owner of the domain will not want to keep paying for it after it runs out, which I'm not sure exactly when that is. I have paid for it to help out the last few years but can't expect him to keep maintaining the site as well which he had been kind enough to do all this time. He was fellow XJ owner at the time when I was going to close the site down after the 'free' hosting site back then even, suddenly wanted to charge me to keep the site going as was getting too much traffic. That was around 15 years ago! The current owner where it is hosted hasn't even had a XJ the last 5 years or so, so was very nice of him to keep hosting it. But thought it about time to buy a domain and server space to keep going without any favours.
I still have the same XJ and is the only vehicle in the family until the Willys is finished. Will most likely be parted out after that one is finished even though still low mileage and not a bit of rust of damage anywhere. They are just not worth selling whole anymore.

Re: GOJEEP website to close down

I defiantly reference your site all the time. Might be worth it for myself to download the info or even take screenshots of everything to keep as reference.

If y'all need, I have a web server that can host a mirror of this indefinitely. Happy to set up a new domain too.

Yup as you are seeing, your site and knowledge is still a big part of the xj community. It is mentioned and referenced here and on Facebook groups a lot. Thank you for keeping it alive.

That would be awesome. If the owner is willing for this to happen that would be a win for all of us.

There is a ton of information on that site. It would be a shame to lose it.

Re: GOJEEP website to close down

Had no idea it was still being reference so much. Well at least none of it is being lost and will live on under the new domain and server, so no need to mirror it here or anywhere else. Just wanted to give everyone fair warning that the old site will be gone but have already set it up on the new server so any links you have can change in time.

Cheers guys.
