Hosting: What is the difference between shared, dedicated, VPS and managed hosting?

Originally published on aspengrovestudios.com by Lisa-Robyn Keown, Oct 11, 2017 This article from the folks at Aspen Grove Studios provides a decent outline of the hosting options available out there.

Here, all of the websites on the individual server will share the resources (including data, space, and...

Salmon Sister Salmon Brother (Video)

We are grateful for the opportunity to work in collaboration with Project Watershed, Joanna Finch, Methuselah Dance Troupe and other community builders. Our good friend Paul Horgen sums it up really well: Comox Valley Project Watershed Society in collaboration with K’omoks First Nations and various concerned members of our community continue to work on the restoration and preservation of the K’omoks estuary. Joanna Finch, Methuselah Dance Troupe and Pod Creative created this video to support and honor that work. This video highlights the diversity and depth of support for our work, much of which is geared towards the protection and restoration of salmon habitat. Wide spread community support will be necessary to tackle some of our large scale restoration projects such as turning Fields Sawmill site into Kus Kus Sum Park. You can show your support for our work by posting pictures and comments to social media channels. Please use the hashtags #projectwatershed, #keepingitliving and if you are talking about Kus Kus Sum #kuskussum. You can also volunteer, donate or sign up for our newsletter. Thanks for Keeping It Living! Pieter Vorster Owner, Pod Creative View the video on Project Watershed's...
