A pro site features enhanced functionality, a Syracuse University Brand compliant theme and a customizable URL. Pro Sites are created by request only. Simply email your requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the process.
- Expressions websites must meet WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standards and comply with the iSchool and Syracuse University brand standards. Meeting these criteria is the responsibility of the site owner.
Advanced - Full Virtual Server
For users who need complete control of their hosting environment and have extensive experience managing a web server, this option is for you.
- Technology Services will provide a virtual server built to your specifications and provide you with admin-level access.
- In the typical configuration, your server will be on an internal, private network and we will expose a port for you via Nginx reverse proxy. We will manage your domain using SSL via Letsencrypt. If you have specific requirements, please include details in the request form.
- Sites and applications will be routinely scanned for known security vulnerabilities which will need to be addressed in a timely manner as per ITS security policy. Servers or applications that remain non-compliant with no response from the owners may be disconnected from the network.
- All websites must meet WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standards and comply with the iSchool and Syracuse University brand standards. Meeting these criteria is the responsibility of the site owner.
