WebDAV Site Hosting

Information Technology Services (ITS) offers web hosting for both FSU departments and affiliates (students, faculty and staff). ITS hosts the main university web site, www.fsu.edu, as well as some departmental web sites on the www.fsu.edu server. Departmental websites hosted in this fashion typically have a URL of the form departmentname.fsu.edu. Individual sites for FSU students, faculty and staff are hosted at myweb.fsu.edu/YOURFSUID. Users upload and make changes to their website using "WebDAV".
