Overview

Web space details:

  • 500 MB of space
  • option to set your website as private requiring login

If you would like web space for a student group, research lab, or other collaborative work, we recommend using our WordPress Blogs service.

ITCS recommends FileZilla, but you may use any FTP software.

Encryption: Require explicit FTP over TLS

Default remote directory: /student/yourPirateID (students), /yourPirateID (faculty and staff)

Your website URL will be http://myweb.ecu.edu/student/yourPirateID

Faculty and staff
For basic sites, your URL will be http://myweb.ecu.edu/yourPirateID

Note: the server was renamed from Core to MyWeb several years ago but the core.ecu.edu address will still work.
