www.wvrja.com is the address that leads to the West Virginia Jail and Correctional Facility Authority. Upon entering the address into your browser, you are promptly informed that the website moved – and then automatically redirected to its new home: www.rja.wv.gov. This is a site where you can find information on the jails in West Virginia, as well as the inmates in those jails.
As alluded to earlier, the simplest way to access the website of the West Virginia Jail and Correctional Facility Authority would be by entering the site’s address into the space provided on your browser for entry of website addresses (the address bar). Then you hit the ‘enter’ button, to be taken to the site. An alternative to this would be to carry out a search on West Virginia Jail and Correctional Facility Authority, and then following the links provided by the search engines. Yet another alternative would be through the use of bookmarks: assuming that the browser you use does keep the bookmarks and you have had the chance to use the site before.
In all those cases, you should expect to be redirected from www.wvrja.com to www.rja.wv.gov. This is just as well, seeing that during the time when the address was www.wvrja.com, it did come across as unseemly for a government agency to be using a .com address. The .gov seems to be better placed.
