WWW Server

Appalachian provides faculty, staff and students with free web hosting (50 MB) for personal websites as long as they are members of the Appalachian community. By default, all users have web accounts on the WWW server.


Before you can view content on your personal website, you need to build the pages of your site in HTML. To do this, you can use your preferred web publishing software (e.g., Dreamweaver).



The URL for your personal website will be (you replace YOUR_USERNAME with your ASU username)

If you named your home page index.htm or index.html, this page should automatically appear. Otherwise you''ll need to specify the page after your username: (replace YOUR_USERNAME with your ASU username, and replace YOUR_FILNAME.HTML with the full filename of your page)

Google Sites

Students, faculty, and staff may also use Google Sites to create personal websites.
