To be consistent with the Queen's domain naming convention, ITServices recommends web space be setup with a name similar to the natural queensu.ca directory structure, however sub-domains and separate domains are also possible for an additional fee.
We recommend this approach since this is the most common type of name within the Queen's University network. This also portraits an immediate Queen's University identity to a site visitor since "queensu.ca" is the first part of the name.
Under certain circumstances it may be desired to have the unique name of a department, group, etc, before the main Queen's name. In these cases ITServices can provide a sub-domain.
Virtual web hosting allows a department, group or organisation that has a web site on an ITServices managed UNIX server to have a domain name that uniquely identifies them. For more information please review the Unix Virtual Web Hosting Policy.
