Web Hosting Request

In order to provide long-lasting high-quality web services, ECN has developed the Engineering Web Cluster. All information sent to and from the Web Cluster is protected from using SSL encryption. The Web Cluster provides three hosting environments:

  • IIS - hosting for Windows ASP, ASP.NET - details at ECN IIS Web Hosting Information
  • Apache - hosting for Static HTML, CGI Scripts (Perl/Python) and PHP
  • Zope - an open source application server for building content management systems, intranets, portals, and custom applications. Also well suited for research group pages where one wants to build simple websites using the College templates and minimal HTML and/or php knowledge. (What is Zope?) - details at ECN's Zope and Apache Web Hosting Information

Web sites hosted on the Engineering Web Cluster are accessed at URLs such as:

  • https://engineering.purdue.edu/~username/
  • https://engineering.purdue.edu/people/qualified.name.1/
  • https://engineering.purdue.edu/GroupName/
