Domain and alias policy

After the introduction of the new website of the University, we decided to unify the addresses of websites operating within the TYPO3 content management system.

A huge number of subdomains, which has characterized our website so far, adversely affects the visibility of the website in the Internet, dispersal of presented information into various subdomains, may adversely affect the results in various types of online rankings, including Webometrics.

Until now, it was possible to create subdomains of type: www.english.ue.katowice.pl. This is no longer possible with the introduction of a new policy. Therefore, all websites of entities operating within the TYPO3 content management system and on our server are requested to change their websites' addresses to those compliant with the Domain Policy contained in this document.

The commonly accepted way of designing a directory tree, and thus URLs, is the following address layout: www.ue.katowice.pl/nazwa, for example www.ue.katowice.pl/kandydaci

It is worth noting once again that the above mentioned rules apply to all websites of entities operating within the TYPO3 content management system, as well as those operating on our server.

If you wish to change your sub-domain, for example www.azs.ue.katowice.pl alias www.ue.katowice.pl/azs should be reported to the IT Centre or to the Rector's Office - New Media.
