Domain Name Registration

http://www.enomcentral.com/

gsyork.co.uk expires 21/5/2013 and costs $19.90 for 2 years.

Web hosting

Michael Houston is currently hosting the site. Current webmasters need to check payments for domain registration.

Previously we were paying for web hosting from http://www.34sp.com

  • £17.95/year
  • 500MB storage
  • 2GB/month transfer
  • PHP, MySQL, all that good stuff
  • Expires ?

The University web space (http://www-users.york.ac.uk/~socs46) now automatically redirects all visitors to the gsyork domain. Some old versions of the site still reside within http://www-users.york.ac.uk/~socs46/ but all the content has been put into the current website's archives by now.

Subdomains

Email

  • ku.oc.kroysg|ofni#ku.oc.kroysg|ofni redirects to gro.usuy|kroysg#gro.usuy|kroysg
  • Anything else @gsyork.co.uk also forwards to gro.usuy|kroysg#gro.usuy|kroysg but it is preferable just to use info
  • We should use gro.usuy|kroysg#gro.usuy|kroysg on official university stuff (freshers' fair, daily info) but it is useful to have a never changing ku.oc.kroysg|ofni#ku.oc.kroysg|ofni

Content Management System

The website used to run on modx. There was a security problem and the site got hacked in late 2012, so everything has been re-built in Wordpress. This is much easier for non-technical people to use (and more people have used it before), so hopefully the committee will be more proactive in updating stuff.
