Web Hosting Services


Please send all technical requests to:  ChemHelpDesk@ucsd.edu

The Department offers basic web hosting services to faculty members for their group websites.  The web hosting can include PHP and MySQL support.  Please understand that if the website is developed using PHP and/or uses database access, special care must be taken to make sure the PHP code and database access is written in a secure manner. Website development tools such as Dreamweaver can often generate insecure code.  It is therefore very important that the developers understand the nuances of secure website development and not rely on generated code.

Any website that uses open source PHP web applications must also insure that all security patches are applied promptly to any web applications being used.

Note that the ChemHelpDesk DOES NOT provide website development services.

Folks looking to develop simple websites on their own, may want to consider Mobirise.
