I need ideas...

Here is my problem, I have a forum with over 10,100 members now and the site in general gets alot of hits. So many hits that it is starting to cost alot to host.

I am thinking of renting the main site out to a retailer, and keeping the forum as /forums etc... Just making the first part of the site you see when you access the URL (www.-------.com) the retail site and have links to the forum.

Has anyone and thoughts, interest or ideas?

Great idea for saving money, I'm just worried about a retailer not wanting the heavy load on it's server, not actually going to it's retail site but to the forum?

If you can find the right buyer, it's definately worth doing, but keep in mind what you're offering, there are many affordable web hosting servicies without the extra load.
