BYU Domains is a current initiative to enable students to learn the necessary skills needed to have an online presence, including creating a website and taking responsibility for their individual identity on the Internet.
Each student and faculty member at BYU can create his or her own domain name (.com, .org, etc.) that is hosted through Reclaim Hosting under BYU’s account. From there, students and faculty can choose to install a content management system to operate their website. BYU Domains has over 140 different applications such as Wordpress, Known, or Drupal that students and faculty can use as they build their online space and add content.
Participants have creative freedom in choosing what they want to do with their sites, though many students and faculty chose to create online portfolios of their work. This digital space for students and faculty enables them to create a website that works for them, learning about digital technology along the way.

There is no charge for use of this service while you are a student or faculty.
If you wish to continue to use your domain after leaving the university, you can pay a nominal fee per year to keep your domain current.
