People SISSA People Personal Home Pages SISSA Homepage

People.sissa.it is the domain for staff and student personal home pages; once you have created a home page, you can view it by typing http://people.sissa.it/~username/ (where username is your username) in the Address/Location box on your browser.

Please note that, following a change in the computing policy, the old domain naming for staff/student pages (www.sissa.it/~username/) will not work. It is recommended that all staff and students use the new domain people.sissa.it/~username/. Be sure to use the new address when creating links or referring people to your web page.

See the list of all personal home pages for a list of all staff and student home pages at SISSA.

As a registered user of the SISSA domain, you can create and publish your own personal home page on the Web in your filespace on the Central File Server; the simplest way to do this is to run the sissa-mkhome command on the Common Access server: this creates a basic home page (with your name and e-mail address) which will automatically be added to the list of all personal home pages the next day. You can edit your home page and view it by typing the address or URI (Uniform Resource Indicator) in the Address/Location box on your browser. If you have need to develop your site, eg for group project work, you may need to check your disk space quota and shared disk space. In case of need you can install the SISSA Root Certificate.

The content and design of your personal home page area is up to you, but you must keep in mind that you are personally responsible for the content: you must ensure that you abide by the SISSA Network computing policy. In particular, your home page must not:

If a user complains about the content of your pages you may be asked to remove the offending content and, if you do not comply, your page may be shut down permanently.
