When you create your web account in the Account Center, you'll be asked to create an alias for your site if you're publishing via the HSU User Web server. The URL for your site will then be users.humboldt.edu/<alias>. Google Sites URLs always take the form sites.google.com/<your site name>.

Did you activate your web account in the Account Center? You need to do this before you can start working on any kind of site, personal or official. To activate your web account, log into the Account Center, click on the Account Tools tab, then select Manage Your Personal Web Account and then Request Personal Web Account. Once you have the account set up, you'll be able to enable Google Sites and start putting your own site together.

While you're affiliated with the University and using HSU facilities and/or software licenses, any web content you post must abide by the requirements of the Acceptable Use Policy. In addition, you may not use any web content for instructional purposes unless that content is fully compliant with the University's web accessibility guidelines.

If you developed your site using Dreamweaver, you should be able to upload the site in its entirety to the HSU User Web server. If you used some other site development software, you'll need to recreate the site by uploading the existing content using a third-party SFTP client.

Yes. You actually have two options: HSU's User Web Server is available to host unofficial websites for students, staff, and faculty, or you can use Google Sites for small site projects. Note that any site intended for instructional use should follow the official web publishing process, and must be fully accessible.
