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

ITS ENVIRONMENT

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).
