The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses.

The typical Liberty, a so called SD14. British and intended
as a World War 2 Liberty, replacement.... Plenty were built in the UK and Brazil, underpowered, poor cargohandling gear, typical cargo-buckets. Nobody feels sorry they all are gone to the scrappers in the Far East.
