What companies are grottoes hosting websites with?

Postby hewhocaves » Nov 26, 2019 7:56 am

Like the title says - we're looking to change our webhosting and I'm curious who grottoes are hosting with.. and why? (i.e. what's the draw to that company?)

I understand that NSS will host web sites for internal organizations. I know they host the site for MVOR.

My grotto is using a privately owned server. One of our members administers it. https://kcgrotto.org for anyone who is interested. It is does not get much activity.

The Carroll Cave Conservancy has its web site on Hostek. I am one of the admins on it. They provide mainly WordPress on Windows Server, though I think they can do other content systems. We pay them roughly $60 per year for hosting and DNS registration. They have really good tools, and their tech support is responsive. https://carrollcave.org

Cleveland Grotto uses GoDaddy and has for some time. We've been happy with the service and ease of use.

The QRSS Project is hosted by the NSS currently. They have been very generous in hosting our website for many years. My status as an NSS member was called into question twice over past years concerning my untimely death. I can assure you all that I am not popping posies near a headstone. I am very interested in any current news with NSS hosting IO websites. Thanks for any help.

The NSS has hosted the Near Normal Grotto website for several years now. Alex and others have always been great (I am not versed in html at all, and just put up a very bare bones website).
