Vhosts: Benefits and Guidelines
Benefits and rules regarding the creation of vhosts.
CAE will continue to support existing vhosts through the migration to DoIT platforms. This should be completed by the end of 2019.
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!
