Computing & Network Services administers a wide range of web servers to allow all members of the University community the opportunity to get involved in web-page creation. The servers fall into two different categories: official University servers, the content of which is overseen by the Public Relations department; and independent servers, upon which anyone affiliated with the University can publish web pages without official oversight.
Official University Web Servers
- Fairfield web (www.fairfield.edu): the main University web server
- Campus Intranet (info.fairfield.edu): the University's internal web server, providing information for on-campus access only
- Adobe Contribute Content Management Server: the development and testing server for the official University website
Accounts on the official web servers are limited to those individuals designated by their departments to be content creators or editors. For more information, contact the University Webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Independent Web Servers
To provide all students, instructors, and staff members with the opportunity to publish their own websites, C&NS maintains three indepdendent servers on which anyone can obtain an account. These servers can be viewed and updated from both on and off-campus.
- Faculty Web (www.faculty.fairfield.edu)
- Staff Web (www.staff.fairfield.edu)
Accounts are available to anyone who is a current member of the University community. To obtain an account, simply send a request from an official University e-mail account (Exchange) asking for space on the appropriate server. The e-mail can simply be sent to email@example.com. Within approximately 48 hours, you will receive a response with the account information and instructions for using it.
