We finally bought the domain name and hosting account for Stearns, at stearnshomestead.com. We were expecting them to want a .org due to their nonprofit status, but I guess they wanted the familiarity of the .com. They have no company credit card, so Angela had to set up the account and will bill them for a check.

We then used PHPMyAdmin to export the site data as SQL and then import it to the new site (didn’t have to use PHPMyAdmin for the new site, as the host has an import function in their control panel).
