What is this site?

It’s an online subscription-based e-magazine for people interested in property maintenance, DIY and domestic construction. It’s aimed at fans of the Gosforth Handyman YouTube channel but everyone is welcome! This is a totally separate publication from YouTube.

How much does membership cost?

Membership starts from just £2 per month for Silver membership. Silver membership gives you access to everything. As a special thank you, gold level members get their names listed in the credits of my public videos. You can pay for your subscription monthly or yearly – yearly is slightly cheaper.

  • £2 = €2.23 (EUR)
  • £2 = $2.66 (USD)
  • £2 = $3.62 (AUD)

It seems very cheap – can I pay more than the subscription fee?

Thank you so much! I’ve tried to pick a subscription fee that’s fair on a worldwide basis. I’m more than happy for you to just support the channel via your subscription fee but yes! You can add a one-off donation through the ‘Make a Gift’ option at checkout. Thanks again for supporting the creation of this independent content!

Can I cast videos to Google Chromecast?

Unfortunately Chromecast is a Google thing and I’m not using Google’s services for this content. However you can still cast using the ‘Cast my screen’ option from the Google Home app. Just select the TV you want to cast to within Google Home and click ‘Cast my screen’.

What are the password requirements?

This site uses strong passwords by default – this is important to main security of the whole site. There’s no set rules for passwords other than it being a minimum of 12 characters long. The system automatically determines whether your password is easy to guess. Tips to ensure your password is accepted:

  • Make sure it’s at least 12 characters long
  • Try having a mix of upper and lower case letters
  • Try adding numbers
  • Try adding symbols such as ! ” ? $ % ^ & )

You don’t need to use all of the above and the system will tell you if your password isn’t strong enough.

When you log in you will get 5 attempts at your password and then your account will be locked out for 4 hours. So you’re best using the ‘Lost password’ link before locking out your account. Using strong passwords is essential to maintain security of the site for everyone.
