  • I shut down all my own servers and started using external (MSU and outside) web services for my sites, including cyberbee.net, bees.msu.edu, and michiganbees.org

  • CyberBee is featured in the “Hot Picks” list in the Netwatch. Once a week, the Netwatch publishes what it considers to be the best site on a particular subject. I was hosting all my own sites until 2015. This included buying hardware, installing FreeBSD and other softwares (Apache webserver, MySql, PHP, even my own domain name server, Named).

  • cyberbee.net was moved to MSU, it was hosted in my own lab, I maintain all hardware and system software, backup and security etc.

  • cyberbee.net was registered while I was at UIUC.  It was hosted at an office in the UIUC incubator lab. whois data shows: “Creation Date: 1997-09-11T04:00:00Z”.  At that time Network Solutions charged $300 per year per domain, if I remembered correctly. Then it was reduced to $150 per year. Until later (around 2000?) when godaddy.com came along charging $30 per year when domain registration was no longer monopolized by InterNic.
