Shortly, the Sky Dragon website will be moving to a new webhost. We’re currently with Netfirms, and the hosting package is somewhat limited in what we can actually do. So within the next week we will be moving to CanvasDreams, a great host with an eco-friendly business model, and a lot more hosting options. We’re very much looking forward to:
- Lots more @skydragon.org email addresses to use (currently limited to 10 addresses – bleh)
- Proper mailing lists for the various sub-organizations in the centre
- Subdomains for setting up independently maintained mini-websites
- More server-side scripting options for setting up a volunteer database and more
The change should be more or less seamless. Our website address will stay the same (skydragon.org) and existing email addresses will stay the same. Basically, if all goes well you won’t notice the difference, though there may be a short interruption in accessing the website and email.
Visually, the website on the new host will look exactly the same, but the hope is that further down the road we can better leverage the features offered by our new webhost.
