Website Requests - UCL staff only

NB We will now only build new websites in Drupal - NO LONGER in Silva!

Website using the centrally-supported Content Management System (CMS)

Step 1

We recommend you first pass the website request by the relevant Faculty Comms person:


Step 2

If you are asking for a website and need a domain name, please read the UCL URL Policy.

Step 3

Please check the matrix page to give you an idea of the kind of websites people request and what Digital Presence can offer you:

    Website for a site NOT using the CMS- UCL staff only

    Sometimes there is a need to have a website on Apache, i.e. NOT using the centrally supported Content Management System (CMS).

    This may be because there is a need for a database (MySQL) or because of other, valid reasons.

    In this case, we would like you to discuss the request for an account with the Computer Rep of your department who will need to sign off the form that needs completing:

    • Apply for web space (not using UCL's CMS) - needs to be signed by Computer Rep
      • Click on Websites, Apps & Databases (At the bottom of the page)
      • Click on Departmental web account request and complete the form

    Once the form has been completed and sent to web-support@ucl.ac.uk, if agreed, an account will be created and you will be informed of the details in due course.
