In these dormitories, you have the possibility to create your own website! Anyway, it is important that the content is not illegal and complies with good behaviour. Remember: You are completely responsible for the content of your website!

To create your own page in the web you have to create a file named index.html. It is automatically used as a start page, further sites have to be linked there of course. Now, copy the created files into the folder public_html in your userhosting ( directory.

You can now access the pages by visiting, replacing userlogin by your actual login. Don't forget to add the ~ at the beginning!

To gain access to your home directory, it is necessary to log in into the userhosting via SSH on While on Linux or Macintosh systems, it is easy to do so, using older Microsoft windows Versions (except Windows10) forces you to install an application like WinSCP, Putty or Diverse. For just transferring files as needed in this case, WinSCP is a suitable choice.

Other features we provide are a MySQL database and the possibility to use PHP in your pages. For using PHP you have to set the executable bit for every PHP-File (chmod +x yourFile.php) Maintaining the database is possible using the terminal (usage: mysql -u userlogin -p) after you specified a database password in the Usersuite

A file copied there, for instance image.jpg, can be accessed in a browser by visiting
