Web and database hosting is provided to the faculty, staff and students in the College of Engineering.
Department, Research & Organization Web Hosting
Any organization or group in engineering can request space on the engineering webserver. The default setup on the webserver is to create a site folder and assign a group or individual as owners of the folder. The address will be in the form of http://www.egr.msu.edu/group_name. For research and other specialized projects a unique domain name can be assigned.
- Research groups
- Research/funded projects
- Student organizations
- Engineering initiatives
- Engineering sponsored events and conferences
Personal Web Hosting
All faculty, staff and students can create a personal homepage. Simply create your page and then setup a www folder in your home directory. It's that easy!
