Academic Web Sites (Static)

CIT Supported

Academic Technologies offers web hosting services for academic purposes. Services are provided for course-related use by faculty, instructional staff, and ongoing academic and research projects.

Two different web hosting services are available from Academic Technologies, static and dynamic. 

The AT static hosting service provides a basic HTML hosting environment. Web sites hosted by the AT static hosting service may use HTML, Javascript, cascading style sheets (CSS), and server-side includes (SSI). No CGI or other programming capabilities are available in the static hosting service. Additional programming capabilities are available via the AT dynamic hosting service.

To request a static hosting account, please use the AT Service Request Form.

For information about Dynamic Hosting, see Academic Websites (Dynamic).

If you are not sure which package is right for you, contact atc_support@cornell.edu.

The Static Hosting Package includes:

  • Access to the static (courses) server through a UNIX shell account via ssh
  • File transfer access via secure ftp (sftp)
  • A web environment with 150 MB of disk space (more available upon request)
  • 12 hours of support in using the static hosting environment
  • Daily backups
  • Regular system updates to meet university security standards.

Please see the About page for important policy information, including established maintenance windows.
