Institutional web pages

At Indiana University, institutional web pages, including department websites, faculty and course web pages, and official student organization websites, are hosted on Webserve. For more, see At IU, who can have an account on Webserve, and how do I get one?

The URL for an institutional home page directory is as below, where username is your group's username:

  • IU (university wide): http://www.iu.edu/~username/
  • IUB: http://www.indiana.edu/~username/
  • IUPUI: http://www.iupui.edu/~username/
  • IUN: http://www.iun.edu/~username/
  • IUK: http://www.iuk.edu/~username/
  • IUE: http://www.iue.edu/~username/

In general, the URL for a file in the www directory is as below, where username is your group's username, and filename.html is the name of the file:

  • IU (university wide): http://www.iu.edu/~username/filename.html
  • IUB: http://www.indiana.edu/~username/filename.html
  • IUPUI: http://www.iupui.edu/~username/filename.html
  • IUN: http://www.iun.edu/~username/filename.html
  • IUK: http://www.iuk.edu/~username/filename.html
  • IUE: http://www.iue.edu/~username/filename.html

In order for a UITS institutional web server to bring up your group's page with one of the URLs above, you must have a file in the web page directory named one of the following:

  • home.html
  • home.htm
  • index.html
  • index.htm
  • index.shtml
  • index.php
  • index.php4
  • index.phtml
  • index.cgi

Otherwise, you will need to specify the filename after the last slash.

At IU, individual pages are stored on Mercury, and viewed at pages.iu.edu. For more, see At IU, what is Pages, and how can I publish a web page there? If your home page is named home.html, the URL for your home page directory is as follows, where username is your username:

  http://pages.iu.edu/~username/

In general, the URL for a file in your www directory is as follows, where username is your username, and filename.html is the name of your file:
