It's Possible to Get the Mainland Back Online. Here's How

Postby admin » Fri Oct 28, 2016 12:58 pm

I know some of you could care less if factpile.com returns. But there is so much history there and it would be great to bring it back and I think I finally have some way to get there.

The main problem was the cost of hosting. When the site when offline, I was paying $219 per month for a dedicated server and that wasn't enough to keep it from crashing. I checked other sites and hosting companies and the next step up is around the $500 per month range.

Before I put the main site back online, I want to make sure I have $6,000 in the bank so that I know hosting will be covered for a year.

How can we help get this amount?

Well, I've been nosing around some sponsored content providers and I've already been asked to make some videos, some of them paying $500 just for one video to appear on the FactPile youtube channel.

Also, some want me to post their promotions on the factpile facebook page and twitter feed.


You will start to see that stuff appear on Youtube and Facebook. Here's the thing. Some of the sponsored content will want you to download and play a game on your Android or iOS device. If you use the link I provide, I get $1.

I think you can see where this is going. I think I can do enough promotions to get the 6k in about 3 months, so that the site could go back online in Feb 2017. (Unless of course, someone has 6k laying around they want to give me)

The more people we have liking and sharing the videos, and promoting the site on various social media platforms, the faster we can get the mainland back up.

Of course as always, this is all optional. But if you are interested, here are the official urls for all things FactPile in Social Media:
