Websites hosted through Arts & Sciences Web Services exist within a shared hosting environment on Linux servers which support PHP and/or HTML-based websites.
The majority of sites we host are running on the Joomla! CMS (content management system), and personalized training is offered to individuals or small groups for managing a Joomla! website. We have an OSU-themed template available for Joomla! sites, but other commercial, professionally designed templates may also be purchased from outside sources if desired.
WordPress / Other CMSs
WordPress and other PHP-based CMSs may also be offered, but no specific training is available for them. We do not currently have OSU-themed templates for WordPress or other CMSs, so themes and templates for those would need to be purchased or downloaded from other sources.
Traditional HTML-based sites are available with secure FTP access via SSH. Software such as Adobe Dreamweaver can be used for creating and managing HTML pages.
Audio & Video Streaming
For sites that require video and/or audio streaming content, we recommend hosting your media files with external services such as YouTube, Vimeo, or the Real Media server offered by the university's I.T. department. Embedded players can then be placed on your site to play the streaming content.
The following hosting services are not currently available through Arts & Sciences Web Services:
