Web Hosting

OIT offers the following services to host web sites and pages on university resources.


The university has a self-service, shared Word Press blogs server at blogs.rice.edu. Anyone with a NetID may create a blog. This tool is a good solution for faculty, labs, and small workgroups. Learn more about Rice blogs.


Department web sites and other large sites needing enterprise-class service and support should use Drupal, the university's preferred content management solution. For Drupal site requests or specialized use cases, contact the OIT Help Desk.
