The University of Texas at Austin

UT Web

Overview

UT Web is a Linux-based shared Web hosting environment for The University of Texas at Austin that will replace the current Web Central service. ITS manages the UT Web publishing space and related tools and utilities to support Web publishers on campus.

UT Web launched in October 2014 and all available fall migration openings were quickly reserved. As such, registration for fall migrations is now closed but the project team has begun scheduling new customers for winter 2015 and beyond. Requests submitted via the Site Creation Request form will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Web Publishing on UT Web

Web publishing on UT Web is available for colleges, schools, and departments that need to create websites that require Unix-based technologies such as PHP or CGI scripting. Colleges, schools, and departments may provide hosting space to their community members. All users must have a current UT affiliation to log in to the service.

The UT Web LAMP solutions stack is suitable for static HTML pages as well as dynamic websites and applications. LAMP is an acronym for the open-source software packages that include: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. Read about the UT Web technical specifications.
