Where do folks host their professional websites?

I had a really nice dev plan on Wordpress, which they of course discontinued 2 months after I paid for a year. I’ve been ignoring upping to the new suite because it’s $400.

😑😑😑

@bgcarlisle honestly, just something consistent, more flexible than squarespace’s layout, and doesn’t cost a billion dollars a year.

I really like dreamhost. I reeeeally don’t like trying to make sense of their constantly changing plans and fee schedules.

@afterthehyphen
I might look at Reclaim Hosting. reclaimhosting.com/shared-host

I believe their cPanel administration software will let you install things like Omeka and Scalar.

@afterthehyphen @thelibrarian I host mine on Reclaim Hosting and I love it. I know the people behind it well and they are wonderful people. The support is awesome. They are doing Good Things in the world!

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is meant for: researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
