Last June, OIT announced that the university's personal web page hosting service would be retired on June 1 of this year. Based on faculty and staff feedback, rather than completely retiring that service, we will offer an updated version with slightly different features.
We still are working out a few final details for the new version of the service. In the original retirement notices, we stated that People2 would be decommissioned on June 1, 2017; however, OIT will NOT decommission the People2 server until the replacement is online and available
We originally decided to retire this service due to a combination of
declining usage, changing technologies, and high costs. Less than
half-a-percent of OHIO users have content on people2, and this number
continues to decline. Fortunately, we found a more cost-effective solution.
Feedback from faculty and staff, however, has made it clear that we do
still need to offer some form of personal web hosting for employees. We
will provide more details in the coming weeks.
These steps walk you through getting your current site downloaded to your personal computer.
