in-house in this day. Updates are done by the person who owns the
information, and principals and other administrators are responsible for
their pages and for appointing others in their divisions to update pages.
While fees can seem high compared to spending a $100 a year on a cheap host
and using open source software, our backend is completely maintained so we
do not worry about backups, upgrades, etc, and our website does not depend
on one person's arcane knowledge. Outsourcing the websites fits in with our
strategy of emptying our server room. Our goal is to outsource everything
except for those servers and services that must be in house.
