The URL of a website is also known as the domain. All Web Services websites will have a url on the sites.krieger.jhu.edu domain (e.g.
sites.krieger.jhu.edu/example). The web services team will suggest the final part of the URL based on your needs and best web practices.
Some websites may be built on the krieger.jhu.edu network, but by special exception only.
The university has established Use of Name guidelines for governing custom domain (i.e., NAME.jhu.edu) registrations to ensure that all URLs in the JHU.edu domain are assigned and used in alignment with institutional goals and that the university’s name, brand, and reputation are protected.
Information about a custom jhu.edu subdomain, and who is eligible to apply for one, can be found in the university’s central Office of Communications’ Use of Name policies.
Custom Non-JHU.edu Domains
As all official university websites must live within the JHU.edu domain, Krieger Web Services does not allow any outside/non-JHU.edu domain (e.g.
example.org) on its web server.
