Support for non-commercial medical institutions, educational projects, and other non-profit initiatives during quarantine

SIM-Networks provides a permanent social-responsibility program “Open-hearted hosting” during the entire time of the Company operating on the infrastructure solutions market. For this time, we’ve hosted thousands of non-commercial, educational, and charity projects for free.

The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic forced all of the humankind to change its usual modus vivendi drastically. Many governments introduced quarantine restrictions to limit the spreading of the pandemic, and to prevent the increase in the number of people infected with the coronavirus. The self-isolation as a quarantine measure means the people staying home and minimize social contacts. So, for many days, cafes and restaurants, cinemas and discos, gyms and pools are closed. Eurovision Song Contest 2020, Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, concerts, sports events, international conferences, and commercial forums have been canceled. We have moved online, and forced to adapt to our new reality.

Many businesses were able to stay alive by moving employees to remote work. In self-isolation, a remote office is a very viable business process model. But many companies and organizations couldn't switch from offline to online quickly. However, schools and other educational institutions were among the first who adapted to the new rules of the game and successfully continue their activities.

Free hosting for schools and educational projects

The school year is in full swing, but pupils are isolated at home by quarantine. How to ensure the study process continuity? How can schoolchildren prepare for exams? Due to information technologies, the interaction between teachers and pupils can be realized in many options. Just a few of them are the following:

  • a lesson or lecture is captured by video and uploaded to YouTube or a platform that supports streaming video, and the link is sent to pupils for studying;
  • the teacher composes tests based on the lesson in Google forms or on specialized resources; students pass the test, the results are processing instantly;
  • using apps for video conferencing, teachers can introduce remote interactive lessons with side-by-side communicate between a teacher and class in real-time;
  • it is possible even to provide various virtual tours with students in a screen demonstration mode, and make presentations and performances.

Well, we have a lot of various opportunities to study and to teach. And the essential task is able to look into them. It's wholly within the power of schools and extracurricular educational projects to organize their websites with various capabilities (photo archive, video conferencing, docflow, chats for teachers and students chat in each subject, class-book, tests, etc.) to make the learning process not just continuous, but also very exciting. Distance learning is a widespread and well-proven form of studying in many countries.

If you need to create non-profit educational web-projects, contact SIM-Networks right now! We will help you to host your projects for schoolchildren, students, applicants on the Internet on an excellent German hosting, and we will also select a domain for it. And all this is entirely free for you!

Free hosting for non-commerce medical consulting

During the COVID-19 pandemic, all people need to keep abreast of the current situations in health developments. But besides informing about the necessary means of preventing coronavirus infection and other useful things, the usual consultations and medical advice on how to avoid seasonal diseases, etc., are still on-demand.

However, many doctors consulted patients on a free basis remotely — on Internet forums, blogs, and specialized sites — long before the current pandemic. Definitely, to make a diagnosis by correspondence and even by video call is extremely risky, but in many cases (except for urgent ones, sure), professional medical consulting can prevent unpleasant consequences for health. And yes, it will be much better than search in Google the answer to a medical question. In cases concerning your health or people close to you, you need to ask a doctor but not Google.

Therefore, for those doctors who want to inform users for free on health issues and disease prevention, we can also provide free hosting and a domain for their projects.

Free hosting for lay counselling providing by humanitarian organizations

Nowadays, one more among trendy humanitarian activities are free psychological support and lay counselling. It is the sad truth that now we are all going through a challenging time – the uncertainty associated with the pandemic, the excessive escalation of anxiety by various media manipulators, especially in social networks, keep us in extreme exertion. Add to this the quarantine, due to which some businesses down and self-isolated people are forced to stay home losing their job and haven't any financial compensation. Many people now feel insecure, panic, apathy, and other negative emotions. Especially those persons whom relatives or close friends fell ill or, unfortunately, died, are desperately struggle with grief, trying to bow the situation.

Fortunately, some of the professional psychologists and non-professional volunteers are ready at this challenging time to provide psychological assistance to anyone who needs support. Round-the-clock helplines, web-portals of lay counselling are examples of human nobility and mercy. If you are organizing such an online project and are looking for a hosting and domain for it, SIM-Networks will be happy to help your mission.

We'd like to remind you that the conditions and rules of our social-oriented project "Open-hearted hosting" are HERE.

If you are looking for a terminal server to set up a remote office for your business, or you need a VDS or the cloud, SIM-Networks will help your business stay active and profitable in any epidemiological environment.

We believe that humanity will weather the current storm and win COVID-10. Let's support each other and do good things together!
