Why Outsource School Web Hosting?
Although it is not uncommon for districts or schools to host their own school sites on a Web server managed by their IT department, there are some very compelling reasons to consider outsourcing this to experts in the field. Allow us to elaborate!
Hardware & Software Expense
With the rapid change in technology, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep servers up to date and secure. Due to constant upgrades and the expenses involved with those upgrades, leaving these headaches to companies who specialize in keeping up with all the latest hardware and software requirements saves the district money and the IT staff time. Web hosting done right includes managing security, DDOS attacks, server updates, and much more.
Staff Workload & Skill Set
Your IT staff has its hands full keeping up with educational technology issues. Expecting them to be designers, writers, and public relations experts as well as seek out and manage your school website content on an ongoing basis, is often unrealistic.
Hiring someone in-house who is skilled at programming, writing, and graphic design as a dedicated webmaster comes at a significant expense. The cost for a full-time webmaster can range from $50,000 to $80,000 annually! Letting School Webmasters manage your school web hosting, updates, and design eliminates the need for an in-house webmaster. You also eliminate the problem with staff turnover and inconsistency in upkeep and style preference.
