Website Hosting

26 May 2012

Along with this theme, you will also need to have a domain name and hosting for your website. Unfortunately, this is not available for free at the moment, as UKScouts.org.uk is currently unable to take any orders due to personal circumstances.

However, it is still very easy to and pretty cheap to do this.

Domain name

Choose a domain name that fits your group – such as 1stflydalenorth.org.uk. You are advised to use a .org.uk domain ending.

This will cost less than £10 for two years. Search for a domain name here.

Hosting

You might be able

Inexpensive hosting is widely available. I personally use DreamHost, but many other option exist such as 123-reg.co.uk and hosting provided by Scout Leaders: Holt Hosting and Pathfinder Hosting.

These will typically cost around £50 per year – but you will need to take a look at what these (and the large number of other hosting companies out there) offer and decide what best suits your needs.

Update: If you are in Gloucestershire, your web team is offering free hosting to any Scout or Guide Group, Unit, or District within Gloucestershire – please email web.team@gloucestershire-scouts.org.uk for more information.
