Information Technology Services hosts departmental, faculty, class, student, and professional organizational Web sites that are supported, backed up nightly, and mirrored to a back-up Web server. ITS allocates 50MB of space to Web clients.
A request for initial hosting service can be submitted to our Accounts Coordinator via the Web Account Request form. Additional hosting space can be requested by sending e-mail to the Webmaster. These requests will be evaluated, approved, or denied on an individual basis. E-mail accounts for those Web sites, if desired, will be allocated as lsu.edu accounts. WWW.LSU.EDU itself will not provide e-mail services. FTP client access should provide the necessary functions to maintain Web files.
The URL to access these pages will be www.lsu.edu/student_organizations/organization_name. The character string used for "organization_name" will be determined by Information Technology Services at the time the Web site is defined. If you would like to suggest a string to be used for your organization name, please use the comments section of the Web request form to specify your suggestions. If you request an e-mail account, you may also suggest a string for the e-mail in the comments section. ITS cannot promise to accommodate all requested URLs, but will work with the user to come up with an acceptable URL.
Each organization's site must contain LSU's standard disclaimer. The organization's site is subject to approval before publication.
The statements and opinions included in Your Student Organization's pages are those of Your Student Organizationonly. Any statements and opinions included in these pages are not those of Louisiana State University or the LSU Board of Supervisors.
There will be a unique UNIX group ID defined for each site and a site log on ID. This ID will be associated with the faculty sponsor. It is the faculty sponsor's responsibility to govern the Web site's content and to give the site's log on ID and password to those who will maintain the Web site. If a faculty sponsor refuses the responsibility for an existing organizational Web site, the site will be removed.
A backup of the materials from the Web site will be kept for a period of approximately six months. If the organization does not reinstitute the site within that six months, the materials will be deleted permanently. As it is common for faculty sponsors to change, Information Technology Services will periodically contact the individuals associated with the site log on IDs to confirm the status and make updates as responses indicate.
The budget code used for all student organization sites will be "Student Services." No value is required in this field for student organizations.
