our forms service we use on the website will shut down end of the year.

@Oksana: we need to find an alternative. It would be easy to host 
something on our new servers but we should clarify what we really need 
and what we want.

Brace.io is closing down

Thank you for using Brace.io. A week ago we announced that _Brace is 
joining Squarespace_ 
It’s been an exciting year, but now the Brace.io service will be closing 
down over the next few months. To ease your transition, we’ve made 
arrangements with _Site44_ 
give you 90 days of free service, and compiled some resources that you 
might find helpful.

Please note that your websites, including _redirects_ 
will continue to be available on Brace.io until January 19, 2015, after 
which they will be disabled.

Because Brace is strictly a static website hosting product, your content 
can be migrated to a traditional web host without any changes. However, 
if you choose to take advantage of the offer from Site44, there are a 
few things to consider.

*Migrating to Site44:*

Site44 is a simple static web hosting solution that uses Dropbox to 
deploy your code. We think Site44 provides the closest experiece to 
Brace.io for static website hosting.

To move to Site44, first follow this link to create a new account.


When you create an account using the link above, you’ll be recognized as 
a previous Brace.io user and will be offered a 90-day free trial (rather 
than the typical 30-day trial). Note that you’ll need to enter your 
credit card to redeem the offer, but you can cancel your subscription at 
any time before the trial ends to avoid being charged.

Then you can copy the files from your site folder in Dropbox/Apps/Brace 
to the corresponding folder in Dropbox/Apps/Site44.

*Migrating your domain:*

If you have a custom domain and are switching your host, you must update 
your DNS records. If you’re using a Brace.io subdomain, such as 
mysite.brace.io, you’ll need to find a new domain name. We’ve created a 
_redirect feature_ 
you can use to forward visitors to your new domain once it’s set up. We 
recommend you create a redirect and inform your visitors of your new 
domain as soon as possible.

If you have any difficulty migrating your site, please shoot me an email 
at _support at brace.io_ <mailto:support at brace.io>. I’ll do my best to help!

Thanks again for believing in our vision and supporting us at such an 
early stage. There’s much still to be done to make web development more 
intuitive for the growing web developer community. I hope our paths 
cross again soon!
