How to get a WordPress website

The university's central WordPress installation is hosted within the university's data center.

WordPress projects (blogs) can be set up for all departments, institutes, research projects, academic work groups etc. of the university. They may use any primary domain address that is not already taken.

Central WordPress hosting is provided free of charge for all departments and institutes of the university. We use theĀ common layout of Johannes Gutenberg University as a theme for all projects.

Exceptions to this rule may be made: for example, if your site address is not part of the domain, or if it is a cooperation project with partners outside the university. In those cases, so called 'child themes' (CSS-based modifications of the common layout) may be hosted for your project.

If you are interested in a CSS-based modification for your project layout, please contact Professor Dr. Franz Rothlauf, Chief Information Officer (CIO).
