Would you like to have a sitename of the form name.sf.org.nz to use for e-mail or web access? Read on...
When getting on the net, things can get expensive; if you want a third level domain (such as club.org.nz) it will cost you around $60-$80 per annum; what is being offered here is a 4th level domain, more or less for free (but see later), with the advantages that it doesn't require any extra hardware on your part, and it creates a uniform naming area for SF related activities.
With a recent upgrade to our connection, it is now possible to offer full hosting of web pages. However this is a very basic service, and you get what you pay for; certain features (like back-ups) are not included. Actually, since you're paying nothing, you're getting a lot more than what you're paying for, but I digress...
There are 3 alternatives for setting up your site:
If if you would like to have a domain set up, or if you just have some questions, please e-mail us .
The whining pleading bit ...
The running costs are for this system are $2098.13 per annum (inclusive of GST); this comprises $73.13 per year to keep the domain sf.org.nz registered plus $168.75 per month for telehousing (although most of that is shared with other domains), but does not include hardware depreciation and replacement, or administration time. So we'd appreciate a small contribution towards these costs, but that's not a condition of access, even if you want us to do your web hosting.
(Donations will be accepted in kind - video tapes, books, or similar would be much appreciated.)
If you would like us to host a separate domain for you, that can be arranged, but you will have to pay the $73.13 annual DomaiNZ charges, or similar charges for registering in other top-level domains.
