Personal Web Server

Updated 2/27/20. Due to security concerns, editing access to www2.bc.edu was shut down on 12/6/19. Any sites on it will remain available to the public for the near future, but no content can be added. The site will be permanently shut on on June 1st, 2020.

In 2018, we sent out a survey to www2 users, explaining the need to replace www2 with technology that meets updated ITS security requirements and makes web content development faster and easier. After reviewing the feedback from the survey, and assessing the options, the following platforms have been selected to replace the BC Personal Web Server:

Google Sites - ideal for simpler websites and very easy to use. Takes advantage of BC Google Suite.

CampusPress - (WordPress for Edu) intended for more complex websites; uses a number of different themes and plugins.

We have contacted the users who answered our survey with this information. For more details, please email websupport@bc.edu
