Information Technology Services
The Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA) Information Technology (IT) department can host websites for LCA agencies and congregations.
Hosting is a service that allows you to have a website on the internet. We can provide a space in which you can do this. Agency and congregation websites are stored on an LCA managed server in Australia.
This service is available to all LCA agencies and congregations.
Domain name registration
LCA IT offers domain name registrations.
Subject to the approval of your proposed name, we will register your domain name on your behalf. If you already have a domain, you can transfer the domain to LCA IT and you pay the lower renewal fee the LCA have negotiated.
Domain Name System (DNS) hosting
DNS hosting is another service we are offering to LCA agencies and congregations.
You can either use a management console or have LCA IT manage it for you. Fees may apply.
LCA email accounts
LCA email accounts are issued to all pastors, lay workers, staff paid on the LCA Human Resource System (HRS), volunteers registered on HRS, and all other users with LCA resources access.
You can use the LCA domain or you can bring your own domain. You can use your LCA email address to login to the LCA Portal (one of the small-print navigation items at the top right of the LCA website). Inside the portal you have access to a wide range of online services, including cloud storage and document tools.
You can request support 24/7 by accessing https://kb.lca.org.au and searching for your answer or clicking on the LCA IT Helpdesk.
Our helpdesk is open from 9.00am to 4.30pm(ACST) Monday to Friday. You can contact us on 08 8267 7380 or email us at email@example.com
You can also talk to us about specialist IT support. We are happy to develop a maintenance plan with you to suit your specific needs and budget.
