Afrikaans

 

This article is relevant for Staff Members and Students.

 

·          A maximum of 2 shorter addresses (aliases), one in Afrikaans and one in English, are allowed for every division or department. Addisional aliases will only be allowed under exceptional circumstances.

·          An alias is assigned to a specific folder , not an individual web page

·          Send the complete address (eg. www.sun.ac.za/internet/academic/arts), as well as the alias (eg. www.sun.ac.za/arts/) to the web administrator.

·          Ensure that the home page within the folder has one of the following names: index.htm, index.html, default.htm, default.html . Otherwise the page name will have to be supplied together with the alias (eg. www.sun.ac.za/arts/home.html).

·          This address is only an ALIAS and does not replace the old URL.
