Go to https://georgetown.domains/ and click on “Dashboard” where you will be asked to login with your NetID and password. Once you are logged in, you will see a form that asks you to enter your preferred sub-domain (something.georgetown.domains).
As you think about the domain name, consider the purpose, for example, you could use the name of the project if it is a research site. If it is a personal site, then of course your name is an obvious candidate.
If the domain name is available you can proceed with the set up. If not, you’ll have to select a different one. This will take a couple of minutes to set up.
After setting up your Georgetown Domain, you successfully created your digital presence. Now you will be able to start organizing your own territory.
In your control panel (dashboard area), scroll down to Web Applications, where you can install most applications you want, including WordPress, Omeka and others. Click the Installatron Applications Installer link.
Choose your preferred application and click “install this application.”
You will be taken to the Installatron Wizard where you will click “Install” again at the bottom of the page.
Georgetown Domains offers plenty of applications for faculties and students that can satisfy a variety of needs for teaching and learning.
We recommend two featured applications that are easy to set up: WordPress for building websites, blogs, and ePortfolios, and Omeka for building online libraries, exhibits, and archives.
