Developing your website

If you would like to host your website on Memorial’s servers (mun.ca), you need to complete the steps of our web development process:

1. Determine what type of site you need.

2. Fill out an Information Provider's Agreement to request your URL and a space on Site Builder if necessary. Send the form to the Service Desk at Computing and Communications.

3. The Service Desk will follow up once your request has been reviewed. If you have requested a Site Builder site, Web Content Services will contact you to start the web development process.
