Create a Web Presence With OIT’s Hosting Solutions


Did you know that OIT offers web hosting for students, staff, and faculty? Whether you’re looking to set up an organizational or personal website, we’re sure to have a solution that will work for you. We offer two robust hosting solutions at no additional cost: Public Linux and OIT-Supported WordPress.

OIT-Supported WordPress

This managed WordPress service is designed to allow departments, faculty, and staff to maintain the content of their website while OIT manages the WordPress installation. Custom/vanity URLs are included with an OIT-Supported WordPress site.

Public Linux

The Public Linux Environment is a robust, full-stack LAMP service where students, staff, and faculty can build websites, compile programs, edit files, and more. This service allows you to create a website using your preferred method, whether that is HTML, Bootstrap, or PHP or a content management system, like WordPress or Drupal. Faculty and staff may request a vanity URL for a Public Linux-hosted site. MySQL databases are also available if you want to create a database-driven site.

Additionally, OIT has a number of web design and development experts on staff who can assist you in the design and development of your site. Whether you just have a few questions on how to get started, want help with design, or need advice on how to structure your site, we’re here to help.
