Blog and Wiki Hosting

Down Shot of Students Walking

Blog and wiki hosting is available for schools and departments as well as individual faculty members. Please see relevant hosting information below.

For Schools and Departments

You can now fulfill your need for a blog or wiki that exists outside of the Jadu content management system. Fordham University has procured cloud-based servers for you to host your blog or wiki. Through this platform, you can create and maintain a blog or wiki for your department or school.

The process to request this type of hosting:

  1. Discuss your intention and commitment with the Senior Director of Online Communications.
  2. Then you must choose a subdomain name for your site
    A subdomain is the URL that users will go to when they type your URL in a browser.
    This must be in the form of .blog.fordham.edu or .wiki.fordham.edu
    For example, in the subdomain https://mysite.blog.fordham.edu, the subdomain name is "mysite".
    The chosen subdomain must conform to the established policy for subdomain.

  3. Fill out and submit the Blog Request Form
    The Web Committee will review and approve your subdomain name.

  4. The Web Committee will inform you that your subdomain name has been approved. Please allow 1 - 2 weeks for your blog to be created. You will then receive access an email from WordPress, be sure to keep an eye on your inbox and your spam folder.

    Each division is responsible for designing their WordPress blog. View samples of blogs: IT, Economics, Theatre, Communication and Media Studies
