FTP Access

Generally, FTP access to the web site is not given to the requesting office or web site owner if hosting is provided by ITC. Even if the site is set up by ITC and the client wishes to gain FTP access, it is recommended that the requesting office secure their own server or web hosting.

As a Subdomain of UPLB.EDU.PH

All UPLB-hosted websites are all subdomains of the uplb.edu.ph. However, for externally-hosted websites who have URLs different from UPLB-hosted websites, offices can still request to bear the uplb.edu.ph for their respective websites (www.______.uplb.edu.ph). In this case, redirection will be done by ITC to the URL of the website. It should be clear, however, that the management of an externally hosted site is not the responsibility of ITC.
