Create your own Mothers’ Union website today!
To get started please fill out the following form. It usually take a week to go through the approvals process, once complete we’ll contact you to arrange a tutorial on creating your first webpage.
How much will this cost?
It’s free, we will never charge you for this service
I already have a website
If you’re happy with your current site, that’s great, this hosting package probably isn’t for you.
If you’re looking for an easy way to upgrade the look / functionality of your site, why not give this a try? We will usually be able to copy all of your current website content into the new package, and you may run your new site in tandem with your current site, with the option of cancelling at any time.
Will I get to choose my own domain name?
Your site will be hosted under the following format: www.muenterprises.org/yoursite,
however you may redirect any available URL you wish.
When a visitor types in ‘www.yoursite.com’ they will arrive at your website.
What will my site look like, can I make changes?
We will install a Mothers’ Union branded template to get you started. As long as you use Mothers’ Union branding principles you may customize this template however you wish.
I haven’t run a website before, I’m not too sure how it all works
All the hard work has been done behind the scenes, leaving you to concentrate on content. We’re in the process of creating tutorials that will get you started creating your first page. You’ll find this just as easy as sending an email.
Updates to your website will occur through your browser, so you can make changes from any computer with internet access
I’m interested in creating a large site for my diocese / church group, are there any restrictions on size?
No, you may create a site as large as you need. You can also set up other people with accounts so that they may access your website to add or edit content
Ideally I’d like a site that has a forum / photo gallery / online shop / subscriptions…
You are able to use any of the features that we have installed for our sites, this includes all of the above options and many many more.
What system are we using here? Do you have any example sites?
We’re using WordPress, a popular open source platform. It was originally created to host blogs, but is so extensible that it can be used for any purpose.
If you’re using WordPress you’re in very good company, here are some example sites:
(Will open in a new page)
What happens if I need to move my site, or your servers go offline
We will keep your website content as safe as possible, with daily backups and regular safety checks. If you ever need to transfer your content to another host, you’re able to do so using an easy export / import function.
What else do I need to know
At the moment we’re limiting sites to three of four diocese, any multiple site registrations by a user will be denied.
