On this page you can find out how to apply for an MSD website domain name, how to obtain a Haiku website, where to find the Division on social media, and how to use the Division's image management system.
Apply for a web domain name
Top level domain name: www.[unit].ox.ac.uk
Not all websites will qualify for a top level domain name – please review the Divisional Domain Name Policy and follow the instructions for application if you think that you qualify.
The process can take a few weeks, so don't leave it to the last minute.
Please check with your Department Administrator and speak to your local IT officer as this type of website name can often be set up by them.
External domain name: www.[name].org
Please consult with your Department Administrator. If your website is hosted internally, it is best to buy your domain name through IT Services. If you buy elsewhere, please ensure that you keep a record of the account details to ensure continuity.
Set-up a website
This usually involves some liaison:
- You will be asked for an IP address or server name – your website developer or server administrator should be able to provide this.
- In addition, you need to be sure that your website developer or server administrator has configured the web server to handle the website name.
Obtain a Haiku website
Haiku is the website product and content management system designed specifically for the Medical Sciences Division and supported by members of the Divisional Office.
Please consult with your Department Administrator and then contact the providers directly for a quotation at email@example.com.
