By default, web publishing services are not activated for a NetID when it is created or when affiliations change. You must manually activate web publishing services in order to create a website on the Shared Web Hosting platform.
Activating Web Publishing
- Visit Manage UW NetID Resources for the account.
- Click on “Computing Services” on the left sidebar.
- Check “Vergil Account” or “Homer/Ovid Account”.
- Check “Web Publishing” or “Student Web Publishing”.
- Click on “Subscribe.”
Note: To deactivate Web Publishing, follow the instructions above, but click ‘Unsubscribe’ on step 5 for the services selected.
Both a student and employee?
If you see both Vergil and Homer/Ovid, then you are eligible for both the student and employee web publishing services. The multiple affiliations page explains more about what will occur in this situation.
