Domain name Setup

   1. If your Wix site is set up under HKU’s subscription, its domain name must end with hku.hk.

   2. Domain name refers to the part marked in green below (can include alphanumeric characters, "-" and “.” only).  Folder name and file name CANNOT be a part of the domain name.

https://domainname.hku.hk/foldername/filename.html

Valid Domain Name

  • abc.hku.hk

  • xyz.abc.hku.hk

  • abc-xyz.hku.hk

Invalid Domain Name

  • abc.hku.hk/xyz

  • web.hku.hk/~abc

    3. Domain name cannot be shared for use in more than one website

From the example illustrated below, both "its.hku.hk" and "its.hku.hk/cms" are hosting on the departmental web servers supported by ITS and named under the same domain name "its.hku.hk". If you wish to revamp and relocate either one of the site to Wix, you have to change one of the domain names

 

   a. Revamp main site "its.hku.hk" to Wix, change the domain name of the sub site

  • Submit CF60 for a new domain name for the sub site.

  • Submit CF36 for a SSL for the sub site.

  • Set auto redirect from "its.hku.hk/cms" to "cms.its.hku.hk" in Wix.
