Reclaim Roadshow Headed for Philly in May

It seems like just yesterday we were in Los Angeles with an awesome crew of folks talking all things Domains, but time flies when you are reclaiming the web one site at a time! We are really excited to announce our Spring roadshow that will take place May 7th and 8th at Bryn Mawr College. You can find out more and/or sign-up for a spot over on the Roadshow website. We even have a draft of the two-day schedule up for your perusal. Keep in mind day 1 is geared toward Domain of One’s Own admins and costs $450 to attend,  while day 2 is free and open to  folks who want to share the work happening at their school, or even learn more about this whole Domains thing. Day 2 is organized so that everyone can both share and learn from other DoOO schools, and generally explore the limits and possibilities on and across campuses.

I’ll be spending my down time haunting this place…that and eating cheese steaks!

Migration Policy Update: No Free Lunch, Hippies!

In an effort to make our support as sustainable as possible we will only provide free migrations for students and faculty that move to Reclaim Hosting’s shared services from a current university-based Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) account. All other migrations to our shared hosting service will start at $25 per site.

Given our growth over the last few years we have found migrations demand more and more of our resources given the significant time commitment they require.  As a result we needed to re-visit our current free migrations policy for new accounts as it’s become increasingly untenable. And while we will continue to provide free migrations for clients migrating from DoOO schools, we have decided to charge a reasonable fee for all other new clients in order to balance the workload to ensure we can continue to deliver the world-class support that folks have come to expect.

Additionally, if we believe a migration will take an inordinate amount of time, we will provide a detailed estimate of anticipated time/costs for the work before proceeding.

Thanks for your both your continued support and understanding.
