yahoo closing groups

Post by michael8888 » Fri Oct 18, 2019 7:34 am

hello everyone,
As many of you know Yahoo is closing down its groups section.
A few of the groups I'm on are looking for options where to migrate to.
Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. IE: who hosts this site.
thanks,
michael

A lot of yahoo groups have migrated to Groups.io.
From what I have heard from group owners the move from Yahoo to Groups.io is easy. A transfer includes "members, archives (without attachments, however), photos, files, links and databases. Calendar entries are not copied at this time".

I do. How can I help?


Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Hi Matt, thank for responding back.
If you can let me know who hosts your site. so I can pass the info over to the Beneteau 423 group it would be appreciated. they're talking about Groups.io, but a lot of info would be lost in the transfer. And it seems it's not possible to download the site to a private server to archieve the info.
thx michael

Hi Michael. I host MVS on a Google Cloud VPS instance. Email me if you want more info about it so we can take this offline.
