IU Sitehosting

About IU Sitehosting

IU Sitehosting, the replacement for Webserve, is a web hosting service that allows the IU community to publish content for purposes related to the university's mission of education, research, and public service.

IU websites on Webserve that use PHP were disabled on December 23, 2019. Users visiting IU websites still on Webserve using PHP will be redirected to https://phperror.sitehost.iu.edu or will receive a 500 internal server error.

All sites still on Webserve, regardless of content, will be disabled on March 20, 2020.

Important dates

  • December 23, 2019: The use of PHP installed on Webserve will end. As a result, web requests to use PHP on Webserve will result in an internal server error.
  • March 20, 2020: All web serving from Webserve will end. Account owners that still have accounts on Webserve will be able to log on to their account until April 3, 2020.
