Options for personal and lab websites

Here are the available options for personal and lab websites
If you want a particular <name>.umd.edu (or <name>.eng.umd.edu, <name>.physics.umd.edu, <name>.math.umd.edu) website name to point to one of the options below, please contact eit-help@umd.edu.

WordPress

This option does not get removed/deleted when the owner of the site leaves UMD. Hosted by CampusPress and managed by DivIT.
You can read more at this "Wordpress Edublog" IT Support Article.
If you are associated with the Clark School of Engineering, we recommend using a Clark branded theme. You can find more about using a Clark branded theme at this Ask article.

Google Sites

A Google Site is an option for personal web pages. Google sites are removed when the owner of the site leaves UMD, so shared websites should be setup as a Campus Wordpress site instead. You can read more about Google Sites at this IT Support article.

TerpConnect

This is a very basic option with manual updating of files over SFTP. Depending upon where this is stored in TerpConnect, it may go away when the owner leaves UMD.
