Reporter.org offers low-cost Web hosting and mailing list services to nonprofit journalism organizations as well as resources to journalists, journalism educators and the public via the Web.
Created by journalists for journalists, Reporter.org offers one-stop shopping with a community of related professional journalism Web sites. A single search can yield documents at all the sites hosted by Reporter.org - a valuable tool for the journalist trying to find information quickly from a variety of sources.
Here's what reporter.org can offer to the professional journalism organization:
Please note that these services aren't limited to national organizations
-- we can facilitate sites for local chapters as well.
Space for a Web site with your domain name, either on our servers or on
your dedicated server.
A Web site is the starting point for any organization seeking to
establish an online presence. Your site can be viewed by anyone using a machine
capable of establishing a connection to the Internet.
Web-hosting plans start at $10/month for 20MB disk space,
and up to 500MB may be purchased at a very affordable rate. Subdomains
may be added for a one-time charge of $20, to provide additional sites off
of your main site
(ex.: If you had www.site.org, you could add a subdomain called staff.site.org
for a staff intranet). See Reporter.org's Price List for
FTP account, with your unique domain name and ftp server,
to remotely maintain your Web-site content. You can also use this to
deliver documents via FTP to the public or to exchange files
privately among members of the organization. This is a free, standard
E-mail addresses, again with your own unique domain name.
Although there are limitations on the number of e-mail addresses we
are capable of giving out, if you opt for a dedicated server, you can
conceivably provide an e-mail address for any member wishing to pay the
extra premium for name recognition with their professional journalism
organization. Our $10/month plan offers 10 e-mail accounts and 10 e-mail
forwards. See Reporter.org's Price List for details.
Industrial-strength mailing list management. We will set up any
number of mailing lists to facilitate communication among members
of your organization. Our $10/month plan offers two mailing lists. See
Reporter.org's Price List for details.
Infobots and autoresponders. These are e-mail services that can
automate frequently requested documents and information about your
organization. Our $10/month plan offers 10 e-mail autoresponders.
See Reporter.org's Price List for details.
Online registration and product sales. With our secure Web
servers and customized programming, we can facilitate online
membership sign-up and conference registration, as well as provide a
virtual marketplace for you to distribute books, videos, etc. The secure
Web server is an additional service accompaning a Web-hosting plan. There
is a $100 setup fee, and the monthly fee is $5. See Reporter.org's Price
List for details.
Customized Web site development. Our team of professional Web
designers, authors and programmers can design a site or database for
you. The charge is negotiable. Contact
Webmaster@reporter.org for details.
Secure discussion forums and membership-only areas. Offer your
members a site on the Web only they have access to. Deliver your
newsletter online, but only to paying members. The setup charge is
$10 for a discussion forum and $150 for a membership-only area.
There is a $5/month charge for a membership-only area. Contact
Webmaster@reporter.org for details.
Real Media Audio/Video server. With our RealNetworks RealServer, offer
your members a chance to see conferences that they might have missed.
Communicate better to promote effective training, or implement a distance
learning program. The RealServer is an additional service accompanying a
Web hosting plan. The setup charge is $50 and the monthly charge is $5.
Most services can be accomplished using our main server. But for
some, you may want to consider your own dedicated server. We can
maintain your industrial-strength UNIX or NT-based Internet server
and high-speed Internet access, if your needs so dictate. This
option is more suited to the organization that requires a high
degree of interaction between its members and chapters, as whole
communities can be built online.
