Is there any consensus within the group regarding this matter?
Anyone has any suggestion on this?

While looking at the discussion and suggestions made until now. Static website with GitHub or gitlab pages has more support.

Anyone has access to the domain "www.ilug-bom.org.in", Can we link it to the new website when me make it?

Thank you
