Please review ECU's Information Technology Policies to ensure your site follows all applicable ECU guidelines.

To create a website for a class or other academic use, use the the self-service My Web interface. Department websites (except a special project) are created in the CommonSpot CMS.

Request the site

Visit and complete the CommonSpot/Website Directory Setup Request form from the Account Access category on the left. From the Type of Website drop-down menu, choose either Special Projects or Student Organization (Departmental sites are created in CommonSpot).

Create the Pages

Using the software of your choice, create the pages of your site on your computer. Dreamweaver, Microsoft Publisher and even Microsoft Word can create Web pages.

ITCS offers Expression Web authoring software free of charge to faculty and staff through ECU's campus agreement with Microsoft. To download this software to your campus computer, visit the ECU Download Center.

Expression Web, along with many other design programs, is available to students as a free download through the Microsoft DreamSpark site.

Be sure to name your home page one of the following:

  • home.html
  • home.htm
  • index.html
  • index.htm
  • default.html
  • default.htm

Upload the Pages

Method 1. File Transfer Protocol

Once the page/s are created on your computer, upload these pages to the ECUWWW server using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) software.

There are free-standing FTP programs, such as FileZilla, Fetch and others. Dreamweaver and Expression Web have a built-in FTP feature.

Method 2. Mapped Network Drive

Rather than FTP, faculty and staff can also access an ECUWWW site from a mapped drive on their campus computer (INTRA domain). Web pages can then be dragged from one folder to another.
