Availability & Use

Access to Colgate Domains is available for current Colgate faculty and students. Approval for Colgate staff members will be considered on a case-by-case basis to ensure that intended use of Colgate Domains is consistent with teaching and research purposes.

Use of Colgate Domains is governed by Colgate’s Acceptable Use Policy (http://www.colgate.edu/offices-and-services/information-technology/privacy-and-security/acceptable-use-policy).

Process for Account Creation

  • Faculty and students fill out the request form for a Colgate Domains account.
  • ITS staff are notified of the request.
  • Users are notified via email from itshelp@colgate.edu that their account request has been received.
  • Users must check that email for a link to complete the sign-up process.
  • Once signed-up, users can begin navigating their cPanel to install applications (such as WordPress) to their Colgate Domains account.

Domain Names

The subdomain names for Colgate Domains accounts are automatically named http://username.colgate.domains. This is standardized. Subdomains cannot be customized.

If you are looking to create a colgate.edu webpage, or a custom website with a colgate.edu subdomain or a redirect to colgate.edu, please reach out to the Communications Team website@colgate.edu.

Account Storage Limits

All Colgate Domains accounts include 1GB of storage space. Requests for more storage space will be reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis. Send a request for more storage space to itshelp@colgate.edu.
