It’s not just businesses that benefit financially from being online. As technology has developed charities are increasingly moving online – not just to spread awareness of their organisation, but to aid them in fundraising.
One charity that is taking advantage of what the web can offer them is the Easyspace customer Mark Scott Leadership for Life Award organisation, which is supporting a leading educational charity which delivers a unique leadership programme for young people in Scotland.
Easyspace provides the domain names and the reliable, secure web hosting needed to support the website for the Mark Scott Leadership for Life Award, a unique personal development programme for S6 students in Scotland which helps develop leadership skills and breaks down divisions within society. It is delivered by The Outward Bound Trust, an educational charity and leading provider of outdoor education.
The website is hosted on an Easyspace Business Hosting package which offers unlimited web space & bandwidth; Backup; Firewall; Virus Protection and UK–based telephone support and 24/7 technical support.
Martin Davidson, Scottish Director of The Outward Bound Trust, says: “Using Easyspace has meant that the Mark Scott Leadership for Life Award has had a reliable and safe web presence for many years and we are really grateful for their support.”
In all Easyspace registered 22 separate domain names relevant to the Leadership for Life Award and the .org.uk address was chosen as the URL for the main website to clearly identify it as a charitable organisation.
Martin adds: “It’s important for us to have all the relevant domain names to protect the Leadership Award online. Easyspace are incredibly easy to work with and offer excellent customer service so registering and renewing the domains is a very simple process.”
