The deciding factor in our case was that anything that is archived by Internet Archive becomes available to the whole of the Internet; some of our materials have intellectual property ownership issues that would become problematic were the materials made publicly available.

Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] Hosting a custom archival site
I've used 1and1 (now Ionos) for CMS and a pair of wikis for a while. Very good customer support.
If this material is of public interest, you may want to consider the Internet Archive as a possible solution.

>> Some background: we are currently digitizing a collection of interviews and radio pieces done by a colleague and we’re going to be creating a website to feature the results in some form or another. We will be tying it in to our collection of film ephemera (photos, posters, fliers, etc) and we want it to be database-driven so we can easily add other items or collections as we acquire or create them. Our university’s CMS is really not up to the task, so we’re looking outside. We’re collecting the data in Filemaker, so that presents some options. Also, I’m familiar with Past Perfect Online, which is great for physical objects but has a pretty clunky interface for playing back online media.
