The MAG Self Hosting Project

Introduction

In mid 2008 we found out that we had to move our web sites and email services from WeaverWeb, the company we had happily been using for a number of years. We looked at a number of options, but decided to buy a server class computer and bring all of these services in house. The philosophy is called "Self Hosting". The bottom line is that MAG will not thereafter be reliant on anyone except themselves for these services. Nobody outside the organisation can change their company policy, go out of business or otherwise alter what they had been supplying to us and in so doing bring down all or part of our system.
