OIT offers the following services to host web sites and pages on university resources.
For personal websites, Rice offers all Net ID accounts the ability to use a domain corresponding with your Net ID. It is hosted on your U: Drive, under the U: Public/www folder. To access your personal website, go to "yourNetID.web.rice.edu" or "yourMailAlias.web.rice.edu".
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.
Department web sites and other sites needing enterprise-class service and support should use Drupal, the university's preferred content management solution.
For other solutions or specialized use cases, contact the OIT Help Desk.
