Church Web Site Up

March 28th, 2012 No comments

Hey cool! Soon after I got here I asked the people who do that stuff to migrate us from the old web hosting service to the new one. And now, here you go: the new web site of Jewel Lake Parish. Yay!

For the technically inclined, here’s why. First, it’s marginally less expensive. That’s not a super-important factor, but we want to be good stewards.

Second, it lets us run the CMS software we want, and that software integrates with my blogging toolchain. The current website is essentially a blog. I hope to begin podcasting again soon, and that will be another blog.

There are other minor technical considerations. The email is (IMHO) better, and I like the domain registrar. But the really big win is that the hosting company provides shell accounts, so whenever I need to, I can just scp over there get things sorted.
