About our Web Site

The Goal is to compile historical information and create a site that can be used for outreach purposes. Between written and photographic evidence, we hope to create a sense of place.

History of the Site

A web presence was originally set up by Karen Swafford on NeighborhoodLink.com. Jeff Vandehey took some of that data and designed a standalone site using mac.com. Jeff registered the domain with dyndns.com on December 1, 2004, and hosted it on his own computer for a while. (Evidently Jeff paid the registration fee for 2 years, possible up front.)

When Jeff moved out of CV at the end of 2007 (?), John Miller recycled content from the more timely pages plus new info into the site design you see here, and hosted it out of his home by running an apache web server on linux, and evidently paid the dyndns registrar.

It's hard to believe, but evidently John hosted it out of his house for 2-3 years paying only for the domain registration.

John transferred the Domain Name registration to an account at webmasters.com in about 2010. The site was then also Hosted by Webmasters (so John could turn his computer off once and a while!)

In 2014, the collinsview.org domain name was transferred into Miller's dreamhost.com account. John covers the annual registration fee ($10). The hosting is provided at no cost, via John's business, Time Haven Media. Buy John a beer sometime.

The site is accessible from anywhere in the world, and is visted by "spiders" that index the web. (Google for some unique things on this page is see what comes up).
