Host company going down for 24-48 hours
Also, the member should realize that the "transfer" to the temporary page might be doable with just one change for all webrings in one swell foop. If the member has registered all memberships to one url, then that url can be changed for all those webrings at one time.
Just log in, then click on My Account (top menu). Then look for the horizontal menu that says Rings - Memberships - URLs - Forums - etc.
Click on URLs.
Then under the url, click "Edit settings".
Once there you can change the registered URL for all the webrings registered to that URL.
With a minimum amount of work on a free server, the page can explain the web host move, how long the outage is expected, etc. This will also minimize which webring owners suspend memberships.
Once the move is complete, just reverse the process.
All of this together will make recovery prett fast.
