County closes old Web address

By From page A3 | January 21, 2013

The El Dorado County Information Technologies Department announced that it will no longer maintain an older version of its website address. The website address www.co.el-dorado.ca.us will be decommissioned on January 31, 2013. The county’s current website address, www.edcgov.us, will remain unchanged.

“We actually switched to the ‘edcgov.us’ address a couple of years ago because it was shorter and easier to communicate,” said David Russell, Assistant Director of Information Technologies. “We continued to maintain the old web address in case our website visitors weren’t aware of the change.”

County websites receive over 494,000 page views in an average month. Page views on county websites have increased since 2008.

As of the end of January, all links pointing to the www.co.el-dorado.ca.us web address will need to be changed to www.edcgov.us. Russell suggests that most website visitors won’t notice the change unless they access county websites using “bookmarks” linked to the old web address. Users are encouraged to create a new bookmark with the current website address. Accessing county websites site using a search engine will direct users to the appropriate address.
