I hope to do this for Council 4208 ( in the near future.  Our web hosting service ( will soon discontinue its free web hosting.  Is setting up a council profile page, etc., a good replacement for a council website, or should I look for another web hosting service?  In other words, is it possible for the public to view the council profile and yet, perhaps, have some private sections for members only?

Thanks in advance.  Vivat Jesus!

It's done!  Check out the new Council 4208 website: or

This message is for Brother Knights who wish to set up a Council profile/website on the platform.  In addition to contacting Brother Marty Stratton with questions, as indicated here on his profile page, please feel free (as mentioned again below) to contact the Council 4208 webmaster with questions.  Setting up a Council website/profile is, as I have recently learned, actually quite easy and, thus, EVERY Council and Assembly should have a profile/website on the platform.  (By the way, I am NOT some sort of computer whiz; rather, I just know the basics of email and accessing websites and, given this limited background, I have been able to get the Council 4208 website/profile running.  Anyone can do it!)


I hope you’ll take a look at the Council 4208 website; all you need to do is go to or and just scroll up and down to see all the information about the Decorah Knights of Columbus; it's that simple.

If it hasn’t already been done, I hope you or one of your fellow Council members will take the time to set up a website (aka profile) for your Council on the website.  Website training is at  Feel free to use as a model.

"Establishing Your Digital Footprint" This talk was presented at the 2016 Iowa Knights of Columbus State Convention in Des Moines. The goal of the talk was to enable Councils to utilize the web platform to develop and maintain their own FREE Profile Page (website).
