We need to switch our home page web host

With Sarah graduating soon, we're going to lose our access to the University of Evansville website we are now using as our home page

Sarah will be checking with the university to see if they will allow us to keep the webpage for a couple months until we can switch over to a different web host. Also, she will check on whether the university will provide an automatic re-direct to our new url, once we have it set up.

In the meantime, we need to consider our options. One feature we definitely want is to be able to post multiple pdf's so we can provide access to all our public organization documents.

It looks like WebHostingPad might be a good choice. It gets high marks in several 'top ten' lists and it only costs about $2 per month.

  1. Sarah found out that there's no specific date when University of Evansville will remove our website, but it probably won't happen before September. That's good news as it gives us a little breathing room to find and set up a new website. She also said that, when we're ready to make the switch, UE would redirect users from the old URL to our new one.
