==How CoolRunning Can Help YOU To Promote Your Club, Race Or Organisation==
+
==Previously==
 +
CoolRunning used to offer a full service for clubs or races from designing websites, building websites, hosting websites etc. Due to the extreme amount of time this takes, and people's escalating demands on what type of website is required, and the cheapness of other options, we are now just focussing on what we do best - updating our own website. '''Therefore we will not be taking on any more new Web Hosting customers'''.
  
CoolRunning used to offer a full service for clubs or races from designing websites, building websites, hosting websites etc. Due to the extreme amount of time this takes we are now just focussing on what we do best - '''Web Hosting''' - you can host your website on the CoolRunning server - with industrial strength reliability and tools, with our expertise to guide and advise. However you have to look after the actual updating of your site by yourself.

==Recommendation==

*If you would like a recommendation for someone that can update your website, then Richard Wassall from http://www.websitemaintenance.com.au has worked with us a lot and is recommended.
 +
*You can also get [http://www.godaddy.com/ very cheap domain names here]
 +
*You can also get free websites with good functionality from [http://www.google.com.au/sites/ Google Sites]

We will continue to honour our commitments to you.
 
+
==Hosting of web pages==
+
We place your website pages on the CoolRunning web server, this has a number of advantages :
+
*We provide a permanent address for your web site and email address so that if your internet person moves on, you do not have to republish your address.
+
*Automatic inclusion of your pages by the CoolRunning search program, allowing users to search your pages.
+
*Statistics on how many people access your site, where they come from, and exact counts of hits to every page on your site.
+
*Your own dedicated control panel to allow you to view the operation of your website - statistics included.
+
*An email address of ''yourclub@coolrunning.com.au'' accessible via webmail or direct to your desktop program of choice.
+
*We can run a limitless number of more complex cgi or php or other programs to help you push the web to its limits. Generally things you can't do with a regular internet service provider account without paying a lot more money.
+
*Anything else you see on CoolRunning, we can do it for you.
+
*We give advice and guidance via email or even phone if you want to call us to discuss your requirements.
+
*'''most of all we do all the grunt work for you !'''
+
 
+
==Naming of your site==
+
We can provide your site with a domain name such as :
+
*http://www.domainname.com - this allows you to have one or more email addresses like ''raceorganiser@sixfoot.com'' or any other ones you could possibly want
+
 
+
'''OR'''
+
 
+
*http://www.coolrunning.com.au/yourname  - This allows you to have one or more email addresses like ''yourclub@coolrunning.com.au''
+
 
+
This is, of course, a lot better than http://www.ispname.com.au/~clubname/index.html which is how most clubs or races are set up. Not only that, but we do the setup and configuration so you don't have to worry about it.
+
 
+
==Exotic Requirements==
+
As we have specialised skills in all aspects of web page development, we are in a position to offer some "exotic" features that would normally take a lot of time and patience, as well as a certain amount of technical skills to set up, such as mailing lists. If you have a certain need, then we can provide the skills to help you, for any ongoing consultation.
+
 
+
==Pricelist==
+
*Storing the files on CoolRunning servers - $10 per month for 250Mb, invoiced yearly, discuss with us for larger diskspace.
+
*To make invoicing easier we will do a direct debit charge of only $8 per month.
+
*Bandwidth is effectively unlimited ie we don't charge you for bandwidth.
+
*All our fees fall due each June 30th. If you start during the year, you just pay pro-rata until June 30th.
+
*We are open to discuss larger or specialised options.
+
*Our prices are very reasonable when compared to [http://www.webcentral.com.au WebCentral] or [http://www.ultrafast.com.au/ UltraFast] or [http://www.webangels.com.au/hostingspecs2.htm WebAngels].
+
 
+
==Standard Hosting Features==
+
*Unlimited updates!
+
*250Mb is enough for a quite a large site with a lot of photos - easy to upgrade to larger plan
+
*Same reliability as CoolRunning. You can request pretty much any feature you see on CoolRunning.
+
*Inclusion into CoolRunning Search Engine
+
*Design, Consultancy, Trouble-shooting included, if required
+
*Permanent address for site, regardless of changes within your club or race organisation
+
*A redirected email address eg ''yourclub@coolrunning.com.au''

+
 
+
'''If you are interested in this then please email [mailto:info@coolrunning.com.au info@coolrunning.com.au]'''
+
 
+
==Domain Name==
+
*A domain name is an easy to remember pointer address to your website eg [http://www.sixfoot.com www.sixfoot.com].
+
*CoolRunning can organise a .COM, .NET or .ORG domain name for your club, race or organisation (we can also do .COM.AU, .NET.AU, .ORG.AU and .ASN.AU)
+
*Pricing for a domain name for your club, race or organisation is as approx $140 per 2 years. This takes approx 48hrs to setup and enables you to have even more features eg unlimited number of email addresses eg president@yourclub.com.au, fred@yourclub.com.au. We just on-chrge this directly to you.
+
*We use [http://www.MelbourneIt.com.au Melbourne IT] but you can reister your own with someone else if you want to look for a cheaper deal.

Previously

CoolRunning used to offer a full service for clubs or races from designing websites, building websites, hosting websites etc. Due to the extreme amount of time this takes, and people's escalating demands on what type of website is required, and the cheapness of other options, we are now just focussing on what we do best - updating our own website. Therefore we will not be taking on any more new Web Hosting customers.
