Additional domains

Overview

This document sets out the way in which some additional internet domains have been set up (over the period starting during 2019 and concluded for the time being in June 2020) for use by CPA on behalf of itself, and through its custody the emerging "sister organisation" Climate Psychology International ("CPI").

This document should be read in conjunction with the following earlier Help documents:-

...both of which are, in effect, updated by the following details of the registration and configuration of the additional domains.

A naming and usage convention was first proposed by Nick Plant in a "think piece" of February 2019, and was used to set up the additional domains, which are as follows:-

  • climatepsychologyinternational.org - registered to CPA via the same hosting account as the main domain climatepsychologyalliance.org
  • climatepsychology.org - registered to CPA via the same hosting account as the main domain climatepsychologyalliance.org
  • climatepsychology.org.uk - registered to CPA separately via a customer account at Whois.com
  • climatepsychology.uk -  - registered to CPA separately via the same account at Whois.com

Domain management

Most domain management is carried out alongside domain management for the main domain. More specifically, annual/other renewal fee payments, occasional alteration of privacy or other settings, etc., will be carried out by CPA using customer accounts at Hostgator, and occasionally at Whois.

Historic caveat:-

  • The domain climatepsychology.org was originally registered by CPA's colleages and friends in the US, and was originally aliased to their web site at climatepsychology.us, but later transferred to CPA's custody and re-aliased to the international site (see below).
  • The domains climatepsychology.org.uk and climatepsychology.uk should ideally be in the same hands as the others. Hostgator cannot however host .uk domains so further integration by transferring these to Hostgator from Whois is unfortunately not possible.

International site

A hosting package has been purchased, and a dedicated Joomla installation set up, for Climate Psychology International climatepsychologyinternational.org similar to but separate from the main CPA site. At the time of writing this site had been initiated but was being witheld from public view due to being constructed.

Further details are beyond the scope of this document.

Web aliases

The other additional domains are used as aliases:-

  • climatepsychology.org redirects visitors automatically to climatepsychologyinternational.org (the international site)
  • climatepsychology.org.uk redirects visitors automatically to climatepsychologyalliance.org (the UK site)
  • climatepsychology.uk also redirects visitors automatically to climatepsychologyalliance.org (the UK site)

Email handling

All email messages sent to <anyaddress>@climatepsychology.uk or <anyaddress>@climatepsychology.org.uk are automatically forwarded to  <anyaddress>@climatepsychologyalliance.org and will be handled on arrival there in accordance with the standard management plan.

All email messages sent to <anyaddress>@climatepsychology.org are automatically forwarded to <anyaddress>@climatepsychologyinternational.org

The following email addresses are active for the international site:-

  • This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

.....both of which are currently set to auto-forward to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and will be handled there on arrival in accordance with the stanard management plan.

[The above two email addresses were created as a compromise due to hosting account limitations preventing a default email forwarder being used to achieve a more all-encompassing forwarding arrangement.]
