Discourse Installs for Non-Profit and EducationJeff Atwood February 19, 2014
Discourse is an open source project so it can reach the entire breadth of the web, including non-profits or schools that may have modest budgets.
If you’re part of a non-profit or educational organization that needs a great next-generation discussion platform, we can help:
For a flat one time setup fee of $99, we can set up a fully configured Discourse instance in the cloud for you. Please note that a $10/month hosting fee is still payable to the cloud provider (Digital Ocean), and that this option is completely self-support after the initial install.
- Decide what domain name you want for your discussion community, in the form of:
forums.example.com, etc. You must have control over the DNS for this domain.
- Purchase the install via via our E-Z payment form.
- Upon receipt of payment, we’ll begin setup. Once complete, we’ll contact you via email with the simple DNS changes and credentials necessary to make your shiny new Discourse discussion community go live!
If you have any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org any time.
The process usually takes 1 business day in most cases. Welcome to the family. :)
