Helping the World One Website at a Time

Hosting Program Going on Hiatus

The bottom line: Our no cost web hosting program is going on hiatus. All client sites should make new hosting arrangements by June 30th.

Irth Networks has been hosting not-for-profit websites at no cost for nine years. We're proud that we've been the internet home for a wide array of people and organizations. Children's museums, card game creators, high school libraries, get out the vote groups, music fans, churches, and youth groups, just to name a few! It's been quite a ride!

Nine years is a long time, especially in internet terms, and it's time to take a break.

We encourage all sites to make new hosting and email arrangements by June 30th.

Thanks to all of you for being a part of our Internet community!

Server Transition

In order to continue to provide the high levels of service that you expect of Irth Networks we're rolling out new servers. This will require that some sites transition to other systems.

The site operators impacted will be notified to arrange a convenient time for the transition.

The plan is to provision the new equipment over the next few weeks and then begin transitioning over client sites on a site-by-site basis. This should take approximately 6 weeks with expected completion by December 1st 2005.
