Web Hosting (Windows)

Our team offers secure, fast, and reliable web hosting solutions. These website hosting services are intended for faculty and staff with web technology expertise who want to develop and manage their own website. For all web hosting options the IST Windows Team maintains the hardware and hypervisor layers of each website and allow local administration to monitor and maintain their own webpages and applications.

  • CalWeb Basic (IIS) - Designed for traditional, static content web sites and for sites requiring limited database support. Code migrations are managed by the customer.
  • Web Farm ColdFusion - Designed for resource-intensive, web-based applications with more complex database requirements that also need to host ColdFusion applications. Code migrations between environments will be handled by production control via shares for all IST managed sites.  For all non IST managed sites code migrations will be handled via the network shares by the site developers.
