Hosting web

Web space

The UniTrento web portal is designed on an architecture that has been designed, implemented and maintained by the IT services management in cooperation with the Communication management, in order to take care of the technological aspects as well as the graphical and textual ones. Alongside it are other websites created to meet specific needs for organization and research: these could be personal websites based on a standard web content management system where the user -often a professor- autonomously posts some content, or websites designed by external companies. Among these services are also those platforms being accessible with authentication only, which enable the private management of some content (e.g. MyUnitn).

Thanks to management of the University servers by technicians from the IT Governance, it is possible to host websites for personal pages or research projects.


Websites for personal webpages or research projects may be hosted through the University servers managed by the University ICT staff.
