It might be nice to register the “flagsonthe48.org” domain name. I can then point this domain name to the flags.alpinezone.com site. Based on this year’s feedback, it looks like this is going to be an ongoing event. A dedicated domain name might make it easier to promote.
The domain name registration cost $70 for two years. If we get 34 other people to donate $2 each to cover the registration cost, we can do this. Please respond to this thread if you’re willing to contribute.ChrisKeymasterSeptember 15, 2003 at 3:24 pmPost count: 884
Definitely willing to contribute. Can also recommend decent host, contribute to the web site, if desired.
P.S. Excellent ideaStephenParticipantSeptember 15, 2003 at 4:09 pmPost count: 759GregSeptember 15, 2003 at 4:13 pmPost count: 397FrodoParticipantSeptember 15, 2003 at 4:28 pmPost count: 335
I’ll pitch in Greg, let me know what you need.StephenParticipantSeptember 15, 2003 at 4:53 pmPost count: 759rbhayesSeptember 15, 2003 at 8:05 pmPost count: 69
Be glad to chip in for whatever teh final cost is.shadowbandSeptember 16, 2003 at 12:48 amPost count: 14
I’m in as well. Actually, at $8.50, I’ll sponser the domain name for a year 🙂MaxSeptember 16, 2003 at 4:05 amPost count: 40
Let us know what you need Greg, email me an address and I’ll get a check out tomorrow. I’d be in for a year’s donation even if it costs $35. If you can use the extra for future promotional expenses, that’d be OK too.GregSeptember 16, 2003 at 1:05 pmPost count: 397
Okay. I have a ticket in with my host’s help desk asking whether we can park a domain name and point it to a subdomain on AlpineZone.com’s site (i.e. flags.alpinezone.com). Something is telling me that they’re going to say we need a hosting account, but since the Flags site is less than 1 MB, I thought I’d ask. I know they park domains that point to the top level domain (i.e. alpinezone.com), but I want it to go right to the Flags site. We shall see.GregSeptember 16, 2003 at 1:40 pmPost count: 397

We host the Web page for a non-profit event, Flags on the 48 – http://flags.alpinezone.com/
The size of the site is less than 1 MB. If we were to register a domain name for the event, i.e. flagsonthe48.org, would we be able to park that domain name and point it to our subdomain?
Unfortunately domain parking is not allowed on subdomains. If you wanted to use a new domain for a new site, you’d need to purchase another hosting account, probably a V20 would work.
Let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns.
Looks like we would need a separate hosting account if we were to use my host… 🙁 I don’t have a problem at all continuing to host it under flags.alpinezone.com if that works for everybody.
the8re – looks like mydomain.com can do redirects:
Ever use that?StephenParticipantSeptember 16, 2003 at 1:58 pmPost count: 759MichaelJParticipantSeptember 16, 2003 at 10:15 pmPost count: 839
Let me know if any of that doesn’t work out. I host my own domain on my own hardware with my own DNS on my own connection, so can pretty much do whatever I want, given the limitation that it’s run out of my home so any DSL or electrical service flakiness (or hardware failures) could crop up at any time.
