How This Web Site is Funded?

This web site is not free! Each year we must renew our domain registrations. The NASG owns both the main "nasg.org" and the special "nasgconvention.com" domains. We rent server space with a web hosting company that is renewed on an annual basis as well. We are currently limited to 10GB of available storage space (see the "Site Map" page to see how much space we are currently using). For about two-and-a-half times the current annual cost, we could upgrade to unlimited storage.

The webmaster, yours truly, does get a small fee for maintaining this web site. I usually spend at least one hour each day, but usually several hours, maintaining this web site and processing e-mails directed at the webmaster, including online purchases. I own my own software publishing company, Fourth Ray Software, through which I use PayPal's business account. I have offered, and am using, that business account to help implement the online shopping cart of the NASG web site. All funds collected on behalf of the NASG are sent to the NASG's Treasurer, minus any per-transaction fees that PayPal (and the credit/debit card companies) charge. I pay a monthly fee for my PayPal business account, which my company pays for completely.

The NASG organization pays for the above-mentioned costs (except for the PayPal monthly fees). So, if you want to provide support for this web site, please consider becoming an NASG member, as a small portion of the annual membership fee pays for this web site.

If you wish to support the webmaster directly, consider visiting the Fourth Ray Software web site, linked to above.
