As Kent Country approaches its 10th birthday, we are considering changing the Header at the top of the page.
We would like to get some feedback from our users on what they think.
This poll closes on 27th September.
Welcome to the Kent Country web site.
This web site was set-up in 2007 to provide a central information point for anything connected with Country & Western Music in Kent (UK).
We aim to provide a service to the organisers of Country Music Clubs by making available details of their events, venues and contacts.
If you have any news or changes that you wish to pass on, Please contact us.
Suggestions are always welcomed, and we are always happy to hear of errors and omissions. News of planned '1-off' events are also welcomed Click here to see our Contact details.
Problems accessing the site
It would appear that many users are having problems getting into the Kent-Country.org web site.
We have recently changed our web hosting, and in the change over, we dropped the 'Secure Site' listing.
The Secure Site (SSL) is designed to keep users data safe and protect transactions. Since we don't have any users data, and there are no transactions, we could not justify the 100+ £'s it would cost to implement.
Investigating our system shows that many users are trying to access the site with the address https :// www.kent-country.org
Its the https that is causing the problem. (the s makes the system search for security certificates, which do not exist) .
Our suggestion to overcome much of this is to edit your browser bookmark for Kent Country so that it has http://www.kent-country.org or simply www.kent-country.org which should then allow easy access. Try clicking on one of these to try it...
Sorry for the inconvienience, and we hope things get resolved soon...
Yes, as in NO money!!!!
Many people are not convinced that we can provide this web site and the service to the Clubs for FREE.
The fact is we can and do. Since we started in September 2007 we have not asked anyone for any money for this web site, and we have no intention of asking for any.
Designing and building web sites is my 'Hobby' and Maggie loves taking photos, and we also like to listen to Country Music this web site is the result.
We do the work, but we need the support of the Club Organisers to let us have the details of their events, along with any other relevant news.
Thanks - Half a Million
Since we started this site in September 2007, our counting system tells us that we have had over 500,000 page hits.
Your support makes the effort we put in well worth while.
All the while we believe we are providing a welcome service we are happy to continue. Don't forget, it needs the support of the event organisers !!!
