    Web Hosting Community Rallies around New Orleans


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Web hosts are in a unique position to help out the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Read about what some companies are doing to help get the most famous party town in the United States back to work.

    As the biggest natural disaster to hit the United States in recorded history, Hurricane Katrina all but redefined the term “devastation.” Hundreds of people died, and untold numbers of others lost many of the material and immaterial things we all take for granted: homes, cars, personal possessions, businesses…and websites. Yes, web host DirectNIC heroically kept its servers up and running throughout the chaos even though the company is located right in the heart of the New Orleans business district, but they weren’t hosting everybody in the region.

    Imagine what it must feel like to put your money into a business, even hosting your own website, and see it destroyed by Katrina’s watery fury and its aftereffects. Even if your business is still online, you probably have higher priorities than trying to remember how close your domain name is to expiring. Certainly, paying your web host may not be your highest priority when the communications infrastructure is in such bad shape that you are having problems contacting all of your employees.  Where do you turn for help?

    The web hosting community can be justifiably proud of itself for the support it is offering to the people in distress. It is therapeutic to be able to get back to work after your entire world has been turned upside down; it can serve as a bridge back to normality from living with chaos. Web hosting companies have offered money, technical services, special websites, and other items and services to help the people of New Orleans get back on their feet. Keeping in mind what any business would need to get and stay up and running, the variety of assistance offered will surely be instrumental in helping the business heart of the devastated region begin to beat once again.
