Website & Domain Hosting for Non-Profit Organisations

Website and domain hosting for non-profit organisations is handled on a seperate dedicated server. If you represent a non-profit organisation, check out the details of our website hosting services and compare to commercial ISP's and hosting providers.

For an example of the type of website that can be hosted by us, please visit the Waterfall Rural Fire Brigade's website. Waterfall RFB is, like APANA, completely operated by volunteers to provide fire-fighting, protection and prevention services to the town of Waterfall and surrounding areas. I have been an active member of the brigade since October 2001, and my wife Tiffany is also a member.

My local network plays host to a growing collection of web pages and page groups that cover a variety of different topic areas - some of which may interest you. The following list presents just a small collection of what is available from here:

- Links to other sites who have broadly similar goals to APANA, and sources of high-quality Australian-made IT hardware and software.

- Details about the hardware and software used here and on the other machines which make up my local network.

- Interesting things to do & places to explore around my local network.

- To view a more comprehensive list of all the information that I have online (not just material hosted here on Jedi), the Lios main page is the best place to go.
