Requirements for the installation of a virtual webserver

Address (URL)

Please follow our guidelines regarding the address of your new virtual webserver!

  • You must use uni-goettingen.de or mpg.de as top-level-domains; your URL may look like mywebpage.mpg.de or mywebpage.uni-goettingen.de.
  • You may use your URL with or without the www-prefix. Your webpage will be available at both variants (example: www.mywebpage.mpg.de and mywebpage.mpg.de).
  • It is also possible to use contigous names like name.mywebpage.mpg.de

If you want to use a domain, which does not comply with these rules, please contact press office of the University of Göttingen. Information of restrictions for the usage of domains could you find here

Other prerequisites

A prerequisite for the setup of a virtual webserver is a valid GWDG userid. The virtual webserver will be owned by this user-account and can only be edited by this account. If you are planning to use many different users you may use a functional user-account instead of an usual user-account. You can propose for an useraccount here
