For historical purposes in case something goes wrong again at some point in the future:

The MTS Archive is currently a Google Sites site. It is associated with the Google account jeff.ogden@umich.edu which is a personal Google account and not a UMICH Google account. The Google Site is free, but it uses Google Docs to store some large documents and Google's Picasa to store photos and videos. I pay Google for some additional disk space for Docs and Picasa.

The domain name michigan-terminal-system.org is registered under my name with MyDomain.com. I pay something like $12.99 a year for this and the renewal date is the end of August.  This happens automatically each year as long as my credit card keeps working.

Name service is provided by MyDomain.com using ns1.yourhostingaccount.com and ns2.yourhostingaccount.com.

There are two subdomains: archive.michigan-terminal-system.org and www.michigan-terminal-system.org. They both have CNAME records that point to ghs.google.com. There was some setup on the Google end of things back in 2010 so that the Google Sites software would recognize the two subdomains as pointing to the MTS Archive site which has the internal Google URL https://sites.google.com/site/michiganterminalsystem/home.
