Moving from MyWeb to Live@Edu

The personal webhosting service offered to all UGA affiliates is called MyWeb. It offers only 200mb of storage. The advantage is that javascript, iframes, etc. are allowed, which is not the case for many free website hosting tools, especially the fancy WYSIWIG ones. So, I haven't convinced you that MyWeb has value? Well, consider redirecting your myweb page to your live@edu profile,Spaces page, or other site that you do maintain. Here's how:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=">
  • Save the file on your computer with a name of index.html
  • Log into your MyDrive web interface at
  • Navigate to the Home@UGA->www folder
  • From the File menu on the right, select Upload
  • Click Choose File and select your newly created index.html file
  • Click Upload

You could also choose to only redirect certain directories of your site by adding a similar index.html file in the subdirectories that you desire to redirect.
