Overview

Faculty and Staff may utilize a number of solutions for digital information sharing at UBC.

Simple Web Hosting

For static content and anonymous file sharing, UBC IT offers paid web hosting that is highly available at minimal cost. You may also be able to acquire a “3rd level domain” (for example, domain.ubc.ca) for your site.

Blogs Websites

As an additional option for static content, CTL offers a free WordPress-based website service called “UBC Blogs”. This service is available to all faculty, staff and students that have a CWL.
