#2823: Funding request: renew sugarlabs.{org,net}
    Reporter:  bernie          |          Owner:  mchua

    Priority:  Urgent          |      Milestone:  not applicable
   Component:  fundingrequest  |        Version:  Unspecified

 == What is being purchased? ==
 Renew 2 domains at name.com

 == Why does this purchase benefit the operations of Sugar Labs? ==
 Without a domain name, we'd be hard to find on the Internet

 == Who will be responsible for the item? ==
 The Sugar Labs Infrastructure Team

 == How much will it cost? ==
 $9.99 per domain

 == What other options were evaluated for purchase? ==
 I used gandi.net, godaddy.com, joker.com in the past. name.com is by far
 superior and has very low prices.

 == What were the criteria or features you needed? ==
 * Practical management interface, free of ads and marketing junk
 * IPv6 support for nameservers
 * DNSSEC support

 == What deadlines are associated with this request? ==
 sugarlabs.net expires on Jun 04.
 sugarlabs.org would expire on May 05. I've already renewed it out of my
 pocket because we don't have a fast process to approve expenses.

 == Other notes? ==
 Filling in this ticket costed me more time than paying $9.99 out of my
 pocket. Can we please have pre-approval to reimburse expenses up to a
 certain cap?
