Description

Hi,

I do tech and admin work for several groups that I volunteer with.

I run Wikidelphia.org And CommunityMagic.org And philapublicbanking.org And kwanzaachildrensfest.org

Wikidelphia is hosted with Civihosting The others are with BlueHost

I use Bluehost to create Mailman email lists but I've run into a limitation with them. I can have 6,000 names in the Mailman lists, but I'm only allowed to send 500 messages per hour. This limitation has me looking at May First to see if I can move one or more of my lists here and not have the limitation that is stifling my activism.

So my first question: Can I upload all of the List Members from my existing lists and then be able to post messages to all of them without a message limit? All of my list members have approved receiving mail from me or the groups I work with.

Second Question: How easy might it be to move one or more of my domain names here?

Third Question: Can I do this work with an individual membership or do I need an organizational membership?

Thanks for your attention. Stan Pokras 267-968-0407

I'm not sure what is meant by "ticked owner" so I left it blank.

I'm expecting any return message about this ticket at stan@…

Thanks again.<Br> Stan

I attempted to put my email address in the previous comment. It seems to have been truncated. It should be:

Hi Stan,

Just to clarify since we are not a commercial provider or a reseller we have different rules about how resources are used on our servers. You can host as many resources as you like under your individual membership for your own projects however if you would like to host resources for other organizations each of these should apply for their own organizational membership. In the cases you describe it sounds like that is what should happen.

Once memberships are crated for each of those organizations moving their domains usually involves assigning them to use our DNS servers, using our control panel to create the necessary resources under each membership and moving files and reosurces over to our servers. We can provide more details when you are ready to make this transition.

You can host large mailing lists with us. Our mailman server will attempt to deliver mails one by one to ensure optimal delivery. The rate of msgs per hour that can be delivered will depend on several factors and server usage at the moment so I am not sure about the > 500msgs per hour requirement you have. Copying my colleague jamie here for more input.
