I got stuck a few months ago.
I had been wanting to update the Beagle Rescue Fund site – I wanted it to be modern looking, load fast and work on any device.
I had written a great site using .NET and test hosted it on Azure but then couldn’t get it to work on the GoDaddy site.
I had a couple of options at that point, which I explored.
First, I tried to get GoDaddy to help – no dice. I also tried to get Azure to host it but they aren’t doing nonprofits yet. I did some research but found nothing that could help.
What helped was that the business that I web host and design for moved so I had to modify their site. That’s done, and was pretty painless.
Stall a bit more and finally bit the bullet. Instead of using .NET technology, I went to bootstrap. I also tested on the GoDaddy server as I went and it was working.
And before people think I’ve lost my mind. Yes, I have hated the advertising that GoDaddy used early in their business career. They have been trying to improve and have a hosting plan for non-profits.
I also came to the realization that using Bootstrap wasn’t a whole lot different than using .NET
Waiting for the board to suggest changes before I make it public. Though the new site is live.
