  • 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

  • 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.
