In 2007, as Treasurer of Troop 119 of Fort Myers, Florida, John Corning needed a better way to keep track of scout accounts and
the troop checking account. He realized that the accounting information was dependent not only on
an up-to-date membership list, but also on the schedule of campouts and other events, which in turn drove credits earned toward advancement.
What was needed was a comprehensive solution that linked all of this interconnected data, and allowed all members of Troop 119 to easily access and share information.
That comprehensive solution became TroopWebHost. We began marketing the service in 2009. We are pleased to report that over 2,200 scouting units now use our software. More than 1,100 of them have been TroopWebHost subscribers for 5 years or longer.
We respond promptly to your emails at CustomerSupport@TroopWebHost.com.
TroopWebHost runs on two dedicated servers located in a secure data center in Lansing, Michigan, managed by a company called
Both servers run the Windows Server 2019 operating system, which is kept up to date by LiquidWeb.
We have been with LiquidWeb for over a decade. They are a stable, reliable company.
One server is dedicated to running MS SQL Server database operations. The other is a web server. Each server has four 480GB SSD drives in a RAID 1+0 configuration for its primary storage. If an SSD drive fails, it will be replaced by LiquidWeb with no data loss.
We backup both servers to the D: drive on each machine. Those backups, in turn, are each backed up to two off-site locations. One of those is controlled by LiquidWeb, and can be used by them to do a "bare metal restore" if we had a catastrophic failure. The other offsite backup is an independent cloud backup service that we would rely on if anything happened to LiquidWeb.
We backup our software as well as our data, so we can do a full restore to a new server if necessary.
We routinely upgrade our servers to ensure we have new, state-of-the-art machines with plenty of capacity. We have never gone more than six years between server upgrades.
We use Microsoft Azure Cloud storage for photos and documents. We use their geographic redundancy option which stores two copies of each file in each of two geographically distant data centers.
Your TroopWebHost site is safe and secure.
