Group Websites with SFTP

Individual groups can request custom web hosting including customized CS or CSC DNS website domain names. Creating a group or event site requires a COSI account. Requests should be made through itsupport@csc.uvic.ca.

Websites are provisioned from the Department servers and mapped to custom group DNS names. Groups can upload HTML/CSS, PHP and CGI bin scripts into the directories.
