Web Services Update

Announcing new hosting with performance improvements.

AARC Inc. continues to improve its web presence and member services thanks to non-profit donation programs from Amazon and Google.  Tech Soup administers these programs assisting us gaining the grants. Thank you each, very much.

KL7AA is now a dot ORG. The domain became available from a squatter and I caught it after watching for it monthly for over two years. All the .net emails are forwarding to similar addresses ending in kl7aa.org. Let webmaster@kl7aa.org know of any problems. Please change any kl7aa.net bookmarks to kl7aa.org.

The cloud operations migration plan has been implemented first with email and storage services now on Google G Suites for officers, board and committee members. The G Suite platform offers much more to advance our mission and augment outreach.

Secondly, web hosting is now fully on Amazon Web Services. Performance on the front-end, public facing pages is very responsive. The back-end where we use CiviCRM, a WordPress module for non-profits, is now much improved for membership management, email campaigns and much more for club management. This means we can further develop and improve programs for education, public events and keeping the public informed of KL7AA activities.

Nothing stands still around the shack and with the cloud operations team consisting of @matthieu – KL4QH and @al4s – Rich Gillin. There are volunteer opportunities in the webops and cloudops teams if you have the interest and some skills to take on some technical challenges. Contact webmaster@kl7aa.org with your interest.
