Basic Web Hosting

Basic web hosting is provided to all EECS Account holders. To publish a website with this service, ssh into web.eecs.umich.edu, and place HTML files in the '~/public_html' within your home directory. These files are linked to www.eecs.umich.edu, so you can view them by going to 'http://www.eecs.umich.edu/~username'.

Complex Web Hosting

More complex hosting services are available upon request. If you require database access, advanced language support, server-side scripting, special DNS settings, or a unique URL, feel free to contact us for more information.

Services for Non-DCO Servers

It is also possible for users to run web sites on their own registered workstations using the DCO provided DNS hostname. Custom CNAME records can be created upon request.

If you have concerns about how to set up a secure web server, or have any other questions about this service, feel free to contact us.
