VCOA Chapter Package

vcoa chapter 354x587
This is a customized hosting program for officially sanctioned Chapters of the Volvo Club of America.   The VCOA Chapter site was developed to enhance communication and integration between local chapters the club's national endeavors.
 
The Chapter website program is an all-inclusive package intended to make running, maintaining and keeping your chapter website up to date and relevant as easy and painless as possible.   Included in the program is the website designed and coordinated with the national VCOA.org site, annual hosting on state-of-the-art servers, template updates if required and more.
 
A new chapter site will require an initial account setup on the hosting server which entails WordPress and database installation, template installation, installation and configuration additional of modules and program components, server email configuration and administrative account configuration.
 
A Google Developers account must be created to obtain a Google Map API and a Google reCAPTCHA API key is required as well.  All of this will be completed for a $25.00 setup fee.  All account administrative login credentials and site specifics will be provided to the chapter site administrator.  Please note that hosting for this package is only available on our designated servers.  Licensing for the Chapter theme and templates is a one time fee of $34.
 
Hosting for a chapter site is only $8.00/month, billable annually at $96.00.  A new chapter will most likely require Domain Name registration and pointing to the host server.  Chapters with an existing website may purchase this package and point their Domain Name to our servers.  An annual registration fee for a Domain Name is typically $15.00 and optional Domain Privacy is typically $10.00 per year.  While not required, Domain Privacy protects the registrant from unauthorized data collection, spamming and host hijacking (highly recommended).  Domain Names may be purchased from any registrar or purchased separately through our domain registration portal.
 
Provided with this package are the following included services:
  • Configured to maintain WordPress version updates automatically, directly from server
  • Create initial email address account
  • Setup Google Developer account and generate Map and reCAPTCHA keys
  • Theme maintenance and updates as required
  • Monitor server performance and up time
 
The chapter site administrator will be responsible for maintaining updates to additional modules and programs, as we will not have access to their administrative panels.  Administrators receive automatic email notification when update are available.  As expected, chapters will also be responsible for updating and maintaining site content, calendar events, gallery images, blogs and any other relevant content.
 
To summarize, the initial cost to license, install, configure servers and site is $155.  Thereafter, annual hosting is $96.
