UO Blogs: Domain Mapping

Overview

UO Blogs has the ability to map to custom uoregon.edu domains.

  • For example: blogs.uoregon.edu/<sitename> can be mapped to <sitename>.uoregon.edu

If are you interested in having your UO Blogs site mapped to a uoregon.edu domain, please read through the guidelines, then submit a request through the Web Development & Hosting Support service page.

  • If your request meets the specified guidelines, the USS-Technology Service Desk (TSD) will process your request and contact you when your site has been mapped.

Guidelines

  • Only departments, administrative units, and ASUO-recognized groups are eligible for a hostname
    • Students are not eligible
    • Individual faculty or staff websites are not eligible
    • Hostnames for blog use are not eligible
    • Each site can have only one hostname
  • The site that you would like a hostname for must exist prior to submitting your request
  • The requester must be the owner of the site and a permanent faculty or staff member
  • The hostname must be lowercase, with no spaces, special characteristics, or symbols and is limited to three to 15 characters or less
  • The hostname must be descriptive of your department or administrative unit
  • If the hostname you are requesting is currently in use, TSD will work with you to find a hostname that is not in use and still meets the departments/ administrative unit’s needs
  • Owner(s) of the site are responsible for managing their own content and complying with the Terms of Service for Academic Web Publishing and Collaboration Services
  • For IT support, please contact your local IT support group.
    • If your department or administrative unit does not have local IT support, you may submit a ticket through the service portal's home page.
  • The SSL certificate is updated once a month around the 15th. A mapped site without this certificate will show an SSL error when going to the page.
