    DVD-Basen, one of the best sites I ever visited, to see just about every review of a given DVD, appears to be closed down, thanks to the hosting service. If someone doesn't help this guy get this site back up, it would be a great loss.

    Agreed. DVD Basen has been a great source - and it carried our reviews, too! Hope it rebounds, though the home page statement doesn't sound optimistic...

    Does anyone have a way of contacting them. I know some people in the webhosting biz (including myself) that might be able to help them out.

    This is horrible. DVD-Basen is one of the most useful sites I visit, and there's nothing comparable to it that I know of.

    I think that what they should do is make a site of their own.
    Out of a web service like Geocities or MSN, etc.
    I also agree that this guys were excellent.
    But when i readed about this i began to fear that the HT forum some day will be closed!

    This is/was an absolutely superb resource that should not be allowed to die. This is the only e-mail address that I had for them:
    ole@dvd-basen.dk

    If you get ahold of them let me know. I would like to see what their bandwidth usage is, etc.

    This is so damn sad. DVD-Basen was certainly one of the most useful DVD sites out there. I really hope someone can help them out.

    I also found this site indispensable. I would hate to think it's gone forever.

    They've been offline for 2 days now and I just read the announcement on the site... very sad - I hope you guys manage to contact them, it would be a great loss if we lose that site forever [​IMG]

    Ok guys,

    I just sent an email and hopefully something can be worked out. I agree that this is a priceless resource and hopefully we'll get it back.

    I'll keep you posted.

    I also felt a sense of loss when I discovered that DVD-Basen was down. I used to go there quite often to read many reviews of various titles. I really hope that the site will come back again. To you who are working to bring it back - Thanks!
