The Woodland Wanderers, AVA-915 in Woodland Park, Colorado, has reached out to all AVA member clubs to provide very reasonably priced hosting for their club web. Frank Sayers (who has worked in the computer field for many years) decided it would be a nice challenge to assist clubs in this matter.

Frank had a request from one of the clubs in our region to assist. He said "Yes." Then, when looking into what it would take, decided it was only incrementally more difficult to host 100 instead of just one. A plan was put in place to host the web site of any AVA club that wants to, at a very reasonable cost. If the club has internal expertise it will function just like when hosted on the AVA server. If the club needs assistance, there is a plan to have Frank keep the site maintained with club-provided content.

Frank said, "We already have over a dozen clubs up and running, while others are being assembled with our 'I do It' plan from the club's content." The only requirement to sign on is you are an AVA member club.

If your club does not currently have their own web site, we are here to help. If your club is paying more than $10 per year to host your web site, we can save you money.

The Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Hosting Option

This option was created to emulate the current mechanism clubs have for maintaining their sites when AVA was hosting. Now, get the same capability for a lot less coin. NO, not the same. We actually do it better. We fully support html5, php, and mysql. For your coding pleasure. :-)

Essentially, you do all the work of building and maintaining the web site on your local system. Read more

The I-Do-It (IDI) Hosting Option

You know you should have a web site. But you really have no idea where to begin. When the AVA was hosting web sites, for $60 per year, it was all greek to you. When you looked into actually doing it yourself, it was so expensive and confusing.

Now there is another option. For a mere $20 per year, the new hosting of AVA clubs by the Woodland Wanderers means you can visualize it and we will put it together and maintain your web Read more

Your Domain

As another alternative, you can go to one of the registrars (such as GoDaddy.com) and register your club as a domain name. We will host your domain on our servers using either our DIY or IDI hosting plan. The only difference is your URL will be your domain instead of a directory off our domain. For example, the Woodland Wanderers without a separate domain would have the URL of http://AVAClubs.org/woodlandwanderers, and with our own domain name it will be http://woodlandwanderers.org. Otherwise everything else is the same. The cost of having your own domain name is usually less than $20 per year. That would be in addition to the cost of the hosting plan you have chosen.

Resistance is Futile

If you have never had a club web page, now is the time to consider it. The cost is very reasonable, and the exposure is great. Help yourself get the word out about your upcoming events, and spread the joy of being a volksmarcher with a much wider audience.
