Using UVA Create, a new service offered by the Library through Reclaim Hosting, members of the University of Virginia community can build a low-cost digital presence for blogs, portfolios, wikis, and more.
The easy-to-use site allows you to register domains, administer accounts, install web applications (like WordPress, Omeka, Scalar, and more), and manage content. An account costs $15/year, and includes hosting, open source software, and support.
Stan Gunn, Executive Director for Library IT, remarks:
“I’m very pleased to bring this service to UVA. I’ve been using Reclaim Hosting with my students for over a year now. It’s exciting to see students with no previous programming experience set up their own domain and website and learn some basic coding skills in just a few weeks. I can’t wait to see the projects that the UVA community will build.”
