A web domain is a distinct subset of the Internet. A domain name uniquely identifies a website. Georgetown Domains offers students and faculty a way to register a domain name as part of a package that includes the name, server space, and software tools for creating a website. These tools include software platforms like WordPress and Omeka that help make web design and digital publication simple.
You can use Georgetown Domains to create a blog, portfolio, wiki, gallery or collaborative project. You can install several popular open source applications such as WordPress, Omeka, Drupal and MediaWiki to build a digital space that meets your needs. As a faculty member or a student, you can create a domain for a course, but you are encouraged to use your Georgetown Domain outside of coursework as well.
