Who can use the service?

The main focus is to provide the basis for a Web presence for NUI Galway organisation units, but the hosting of other, NUI Galway-related Web sites, can also be requested by NUI Galway staff.


  • Hosted Web sites are available 24x7 

Prerequisites required for the service

  • The Web site must be authorised by the Head of Unit. 
  • The Head of Unit must also assign at least one, but preferably two, Web Administrators to maintain the website  - ISS will not be in a position to edit any website content on their behalf.
  • All involved should also consider whether there is a need for a new website - perhaps the the desired content should be added to an existing website instead.
