We create web experiences for schools and departments

ITS Digital Services offers free web hosting and content management to enterprise customers (i.e. schools, divisions, departments, centers, and institutes). The service is built on a customized version of multisite WordPress, a web publishing and hosting system that is flexible, scalable and easy to use. A dedicated project team is available to assist you.

Our infrastructure and support are offered to all campus units

  • Easy-to-use, modern, flexible and powerful platform
  • Plugin architecture for web forms, calendars, SEO, and much more
  • Define different roles for your team’s contributors and editors
  • Cloud hosted network
  • No software to buy or support
  • Custom domain name
  • Large and growing WordPress community at Carolina


WordPress at Carolina is a managed environment with many themes, plugins and code designed specifically for the Carolina community. For security and stability reasons, we do not allow users to upload plugins, themes or custom functionality (i.e. PHP/JavaScript modules).

4 Delivery
