New domains for IMSLP-ASIA

Postby Choralia » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:43 am

IMSLP-ASIA, i.e., the IMSLP regional server currently hosted in Hong Kong, and providing alternative/backup access to scores present on the regional servers of Europe and Canada, is now reachable through the following domains: imslp.asia; petruccilibrary.asia; petruccimusiclibrary.asia.

The use of the imslp.hk domain has been discontinued.

As copyright regulations may change over time (see the now defunct TPP) it is convenient to be ready to move the regional server for Asia to any other Asian country, and maintain the same domain name. In Europe, where the regional server is currently located in The Netherlands, this principle has been applied using imslp.eu, petruccilibrary.eu, and petruccimusiclibrary.eu rather than the corresponding .nl domains. The same principle has been now propagated to the regional server for Asia.

Is their any future plans on getting an Africa, Australia and South America domain name servers installed as backups possibly (basically have 1 server on each continent, except Antartica)? At this point, I see no reason as to not have more installed. I feel we should have these for mirror sake on the other continents to access files more quickly and locally, well depending on what your local copyright restriction would be to access the files in that region of the world.

IMSLP-Libya! That 25-year copyright looks tasty.

That might be risky with all the terrorism going on in their country.
