The reunion site will be up in a few days, just in time for their first meeting. I'll be writing articles based on its creation over the next few days.
The Girl Scout site is interesting. Last year I created a site for the Clatter Valley Day Camp and because the initials CVDC were not available with an applicable extension I went long form on the name. I still feel the domain is too long but, what can you do?
Today I got lucky. My town has a two word name and I managed to snag the four letter dot net domain name for my local Girl Scout troop. Yeah, I was pretty happy about that!
I'll be taking our existing site and creating a multi-troop site out of it via subdomains. This way each troop can have their own site off of the main site using their troop number as the subdomain. This also allows me to experiment with the multi-user version of WordPress, among other things.
What, who did I use to register my domain? Why GoDaddy of course!
As for hosting I'll be using my own server for this job until things get finalized, then it will move to the server the Girl Scouts currently use for their existing site.
