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 hosting services are available from Academic Technologies: static and dynamic. 

Static Web Hosting

The Academic Technologies static hosting service provides a basic HTML hosting environment. Web sites may use HTML, Javascript, cascading style sheets (CSS), and server-side includes (SSI). No CGI or other programming capabilities are available; if you need those or other programming capabilities, the Academic Technologies dynamic hosting service is a better fit.

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.

Request a static hosting account.
