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.

Webserve account owners need to transfer their accounts to IU Sitehosting. PHP on Webserve reaches end of life in December 2019. Account owners must migrate their PHP content by December 23, 2019. The operating system for Webserve is also nearing end of life. All other content must be moved by the account owner before March 20, 2020.
