Welcome to OSU Web Hosting Services

The OSU Web Hosting Service provides a robust, redundant, 24/7 web hosting platform designed for the OSU community. These services have been built using a standard Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (A.K.A. "LAMP") infrastructures. Customers are able to securely transfer site content using their OSU name.# IDs, create unlimited additional FTP accounts and restrict access of those accounts to specific subsections of their website. The infrastructure provides daily backups, security standards compliance, Kerberos and Shibboleth integration, as well as support for multi-domain web sites.

The aim is to provide services that are inclusive of the many different constituents of the university and allow each unit to express their own web design, without imposing system-wide templates. Each unit is free to install PHP applications and express themselves in a way that suits their disciplines and interests.
