CiiMS to no longer offer public hosting services

Effective immediatly, CiiMS hosting as a service is no longer available

It is with great regret that I must announce that CiiMS will no longer be offering hosting as a service.

Nearly 6 years ago I started developing CiiMS as a learning tool and as platform for developers and writers to create and publish content. Last year I started an ambitious project to provide CiiMS hosting as a service, based upon feedback received from hundreds of developers and writers.

After a year, CiiMS' hosting as a service offering has failed to gain the necessary traction to continue offering this service. Consequently, effective immediatly I will no longer be offering hosting as a service for CiiMS.

Trying to bootstrap a business with your own personal finances is always a challenge, and I've learned a lot through this experience. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.

Frequently asked questions

What happens to all of my data?

At the time of closure, we do not have any active CiiMS sites on our platform (outside of existing arrangements that I will continue to honor). All other data pertaining to user information, email addresses, and contact information has been purged from our databases.

Why are you shutting down?

CiiMS hosting as a service was unable to gain the necessary traction to be a self-sustaining service. I simply do not have the resources to continue operating this platform.

How does this affect developing and security patches for CiiMS?

This notice solely affects CiiMS hosting as a service, and does not affect the CiiMS project as a whole. CiiMS will continue to receive regular development, and security patches as necessary. The documentation site and demo site will continue to be made available as resources.
