Vhosts: Benefits and Guidelines

Benefits and rules regarding the creation of vhosts.

Vhosts are a way to obtain a website within the College of Engineering server that will be supported by the CAE and completely free of charge. There are many reasons that this is a preferable alternative to hosting websites on an external site:

  • Easy to create - once you have permission you can create virtual hosts yourself via My Account!
  • Easy to modify - map the virtual host as a drive letter in Windows!
  • Easy to specify who can edit your virtual host.
  • Secure - No worrying about having to patch and secure a machine
  • No quotas - (but please keep it reasonable)
  • MySQL - Create and maintain your CAE mysql database with phpmyadmin!
