Unsure about which Web service to use for your online information? Take a look at what ECU offers in the chart below.

  • Password Protection lets you choose who has access to your space
  • SSL encrypts data during transmission between your browser and the server
  • My Web is a self-service site to request new academic Web space (core server). If you currently have space on the core server, you can continue to manage files through file transfer protocol (FTP) or begin using My Web's Pirate Panel interface to upload html files.
  • Log in to the self-service My Web using your PirateID/passphrase to create a new website
  • ECU offers faculty and staff the Expression Web html authoring program through the Microsoft site license. Download from the ECU Download Center.
