  • Separate domain name registration from hosting service give us the flexibility to move to another vendor at any time
  • I’ve subscribed amazon ec2 with with my own contact and credit card info – will have to be updated with school’s info; I’ve kept setup and config notes at
  • Once you and staff confirm, I will go ahead to subscribe to justhost with a 2-year term ($2.48/month) so that we can proceed with implementing new services – will have to be updated with school’s info
  • Once 3 is done, webmaster team can start building new site but first step is to secure mysql backup and the file sharing services
  • eapps is dedicated host while justhost is shared virtual host and ec2 is virtual machine built upon xen framework – there are pros and cons for each them but new solutions will be more economic
