Help Keep Iowa Cold Cases Online

On May 8, 2017, in Miscellany, Resources, by Jody Ewing

The Iowa Cold Cases website needs your help. Our web hosting service — which runs on a Virtual Private Server (VPS) due to the volume of traffic on the site — was up for its annual renewal May 5. They have granted us a courtesy extension for two weeks.

In the last 12 months, our website has received 4.8 million page views (4,804,870 to be exact), and we average over 431,000 page views each month. This year alone, 568,015 visitors have taken time to explore pages on the site, with (for the techies out there) 375,940 of this year’s visitors being “unique visitors.”

Today we are asking for your help in keeping Iowa Cold Cases online by making a small donation toward the cost of our annual VPS server fee. Our web host (InMotion Hosting) is employee-owned and one of the few larger web hosts that hasn’t sold out to EIG (Endurance International Group).

Iowa Cold Cases (an Iowa nonprofit organization) doesn’t receive any federal funding or grant money.

Our primary goal has always been to ensure every cold case victim’s story is told and kept alive until those responsible are held accountable by the criminal justice system. Access to our statewide cold case summaries has always been free, though our time and the resources we provide here are not without cost.

If our site has been of any value to you, please consider making a small donation to help us keep our website online. Whether $20 or $10 or $5, every dollar helps. The “Donate” button below securely links to Iowa Cold Cases’ PayPal account where you may make a donation with or without a PayPal account.

Thank you in advance!
