ERNA WWW SITE FOR STUDENT ASSOCIATIONS

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICE

The Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) offers (registered) student associations the opportunity to electronically publish information on the basis of the World Wide Web on the Internet via their own Website

WHAT DOES THEIR OWN WEBSITE ENTAIL?

Domain name:
The association will acquire its own internet domain name (fill in: association domain.nl). For practical purposes, the association domain will as a rule be a recognisable abbreviation of your association. The EUR will handle registration of your domain name. The selection of your association’s domain name is subject to the registrar’s regulations.

The association’s Website, a so-called virtual WWW server, can be accessed on the basis of an address in your own domain. This address has the following form: www.associationsdomain.nl

MAILBOXES AND ALIASES

Mailbox and aliases: Your association will also acquire a mailbox. The address of the mailbox has the following form:

What-you-want@associationsdomain.nl

A so-called Webmaster and Postmaster alias (which is also an email address) will also be created. Any email sent to these addresses is deposited in the mailbox mentioned above (What-you-want@associationsdomain.nl). The email addresses of Webmaster and Postmaster have the following form:

  • Webmaster@associationsdomain.nl
  • Postmaster@associationsdomain.nl

ACCESS TO THE WEBSERVER

An individual maintenance account is made available to your association for maintenance of the virtual web server. This account can be used to post files on the Web server by means of FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

SPACE FOR WEBPAGES

The association will have a disc space of 50 Mbytes available on a WWW server for association pages. Additional disc space can be provided per 100 Mbyte upon request. (www.associationsdomain.nl/analog/index.html/).

MAXIMUM WEB TRAFFIC PERMITTED

Traffic ensuing from consultation of your Web pages by third parties is limited to 5 Gbyte per month on the basis of fair use. We offer you insight into the quantity of traffic that is generated by your information via online statistics

SCRIPT OPTIONS

Within the form of this subscription, your association will have cgi script options (private cgi-bin directory) and Perl and PHP available upon request.

DATABASE SUPPORT

Upon your request, you will acquire a database on the basis of MySQL, which allows you to store data in a structured fashion and you will have the option to set up your website in a flexible, dynamic and organised manner, which will make maintenance of your website much simpler.
