Personal Homepages and Permanent Mailing AddressWhy pay an ISP to host your web site when WP-ORG offers you that for free?
Changing e-mail addresses frequently? Try WP-ORGs permanent e-mail address and get the following benefits:
WP-ORG offers its members a free Web Hosting Service. You may link to your existing home page or use the space provided by WP-ORG.
The URL to a personal homepage is based on Year Group and Cullum number. and will look something like this:
For those Year Groups that are supported by WP-ORG, the personal homepages are preloaded for convenience. Given the year group and Cullum number, you can descern the URL and check out a site place holder.
The personal homepage at WP-ORG can be used for anything. We trust (in the spirit of cooperate and graduate) that you will use the resource wisely, practically, tastefully, and legally. In other words, you can use the site to post your resume, set up commercial interests, do it for fun, etc. ... (just a list of examples). WP-ORG won't even consider "censorship" unless you engage in very very bad things (i.e., hate, anti-social activities, civil-disobidience, etc.).
Additionally, the personal homepages hosted at WP-ORG will not be obligated to have the WP-ORG banner (or any of its sponsors). The only way that visitors would know that you are using WP-ORG would be through the URL. Other than that ... do what you want.
When using WP-ORG as a hosting site, you can publish your content using the following methods:
Permanent Mailing Address
Both AOG and WP-ORG have responded with slightly different solutions to the problem. WP-ORG's address is based on the Cullum number and will look like this: firstname.lastname@example.org (For Jack Price, whose Cullum number is 25244) Since internet addresses are not case sensitive, WP25244@West-Point.org will work equally well. The same person will have priceJ64@aog.usma.edu in the format used by AOG. (First five letters of surname, first initial, year, and then @aog.usma.edu)
The value of having a permanent Email address for personal records, stationery, business cards, professional registrations, and legal documents, is considerable. The addition of having West Point in that address makes this a very attractive option.
A permanent email address is done through Email to Email Forwarding. WP-ORG forwards email from your wpXXXXX@west-point.org address to another address. This is a great service for those that are establishing WP-ORG as a permanent email address but still receive email at another address. Your WP-ORG email can be forwarded to any email address including AOL, Compuserve, MSN, and Internet Service Provider (ISP) accounts.
WP-ORG is also offering a fully operational POP3 service, using the connection provided by Northwest Link. A POP3 service or mailbox lets you retrieve email from our servers using any standard Internet Email software such as:
