Technical Aspects

cPanel

Our domains can work with a cPanel web hosting account, further information can be found here. We advise that you contact us at cpanel@sheffield.ac.uk to discuss whether the proposed site is suitable for cPanel before purchasing.

CMS

Custom domains are not for CMS sites, although we can make a domain forward to a CMS page if required.

Google Sites

Currently Google Sites cannot be mapped to external domain names, but an internal name can be assigned to a google site created on the Sheffield google apps domain (eg. mypage.sites.shef.ac.uk). Please contact helpdesk@sheffield.ac.uk for requests of this nature.

Virtual Private Servers (VPS)

Custom domains can work with these, please contact domainmaster@sheffield.ac.uk for further details.
