As a public service, upon the Provost’s approval, Southeastern may virtually host Web sites, using a non-standard domain name (e.g., xxx.xxxx.org) for University affiliated organizations on its Web server. University affiliated organizations are those non-profit organizations that enhance or further the University’s mission, and a contractual agreement must have been established between the organization and Southeastern. University affiliated Web sites may not have Web pages that are a part of the www.selu.edu domain.
‘Virtual Hosting’ refers to the practice of serving Web sites from the Southeastern Web server which appear to be hosted elsewhere. For example, a site stored on the Southeastern Web server at http://www.selu.edu/orgs/xxxx could be virtually hosted at xxx.xxxx.org. The server displays the Web pages from the directory http://www.selu.edu/orgs/xxxx as though they were stored on the non-existent server xxx.xxxx.org. All of which is transparent to the Web user.
Permission to virtually host a Web site on Southeastern’s Web server is granted with the understanding that Southeastern reserves the right to remove the non-standard domain (xxx.xxxx.org) at any time, and that the sponsor will be responsible for any costs associated with creating and/or using the non-standard domain.
To request that your domain be virtually hosted on the Southeastern Web server you must submit a written request via email to the Web CMS Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org). The request will be reviewed and then submitted to the Provost for final approval. ALL REQUESTS for virtual hosting must be approved by the provost. In addition, all requests must abide by the Responsible Computing at Southeastern Louisiana University Policy, the Southeastern Web Policy, the Copyrights at Southeastern Louisiana University Policy and the Web Content and Style Guidelines for Virtually Hosted Sites.
If your request is approved, you will be contacted by the Web CMS Coordinator’s Office with information on how to begin setting up your Web site.
