We recognized the responsibilities inherent in hosting your school district website. It must be secure to protect the information of your students and teachers, it must be available when people have questions or wish to submit a form, and it must be backed by support services that prevent issues before they can occur. Here is the 360Civic plan for hosting school websites.
360Civic offers security-hardened CMS and PHP hosting with a secure, Tier 1 infrastructure, with equipment owned and managed by 360 personnel. Built-in redundancy protects site content.
Our facilities are located in a safe region in the center of the country – away from California earthquakes and east coast hurricanes. If an emergency requires you to communicate with your department heads, employees or constituents, our safe remote hosting will not be impacted by a locally occurring event, such as a wildfire or a planned power outage.
24/7 Real Human Support
Daily backup, weekly backup and restore service, as well as monitoring and onsite support, is part of the complete management of services 360Civic provides to school websites at no additional cost. Support is available 24/7, and most of the time we’ll detect any issues before you do. But if you do need to reach us or ask a question, someone will always be there.
Covering Your Current and Future Needs
Our school website clients will become familiar with the development and staging infrastructure we employ on a separate server, as we bring your project to fruition. This is the way that you will review curriculum, athletics and other pages for correct formatting and content prior to launch. That development server will remain available after your school district site launches on a different server, so you’ll always have a way to safely test and update new material (and with schools there is always something new happening) without affecting the website.
This production environment will continue to be made available to you after your new site is finished, so any future changes can be tested and applied before they go live. And if your site needs to expand for any reason, our flexible scaling will accommodate your needs.
