SCBC approve plans to change website and hosting service for County webpage

The Stephens County Board of Commissioners approved a motion to change Stephens County’s existing website and hosting service to be built and hosted by Ken-Tech.

According to Stephens County Administrator Phyllis Ayers the existing website receives a lot of negative feedback from users who complain the website isn’t intuitive, among other issues.

The new website will feature a new domain extension: .gov instead of .com which has been used up to this point.

According to Ayers, the United States Postal Service no longer recognizes Stephens County as a government because of the current domain extension.

Chairman Dean Scarborough joked by saying that at least Georgia still recognizes Stephens County as a government.

Ayers adds that Ken-Tech offered the best price for building the website.

It is unclear when the new website will be up and running; however, WNEG News will continue to follow this story and bring you additional details as they become available.
