Terms

JerseyConnect will provide 5 GB of space on your choice of Linux or Windows server to host your library's website. A database (MySQL or SQL Server) can also be provided for your library's website. JerseyConnect will take and retain regular backups of both, and restore files or database tables when requested. JerseyConnect will provide a hosting environment compatible with a wide variety of CMS, but cannot maintain such systems for your library. JerseyConnect staff can create a single-page website for libraries without an existing web presence to ensure compliance with PCSA requirements, but cannot create your website or manage its content in any other capacity.
