Hometown shutdown by AOL


by David Allen

Customers of AOL, or rather the Carphone Warehouse, have been informed that as from the 31st October the AOL Hometown service is going to be cancelled permanently, leaving many AOL customers in a rush to transfer their websites and other files or face losing them forever.

This is not just a UK thing; AOL customers around the world will be affected by this decision.

AOL claims that because of the amount of reasonable hosting packages around these days, services like AOL Hometown are features that they could do without so they can focus on the more popular features.

It is not so much of shock that AOL Hometown has closed down, the problem that has annoyed the users of Hometown is the amount of notice that customers have been given to find an alternative hosting for their content.
