I didn't mean to sound like I was complaining about the lack of competitors, sorry if thats how I came across. I understand
that people have other interests, demands on the their time and that they move onto other things over time. I've seen that
locally here in the US - there are barely enough people still flying on the East Coast to warrant a competition these days.
Hosting the website costs about $10 a month.
It was cheaper for the first year of course, the providers all offer cheaper rates for new customers - but then their rates
increase for the following year. It might be possible to find a more affordable (in the long term) provider and rehost the site
there. There are certain requirements on the provider, it needs to support certain features and have decent track record
for longevity and reliability - but I've no doubt a better deal can be found.
If VF was moved to a subdomain of an existing site then it could be hosted for free effectively.
