Naming Conventions and URLs

All University web site addresses, or URL, will begin with plymouth.edu/ followed by the department, office or program name.  For example:

  • plymouth.edu/silver
  • plymouth.edu/math
  • plymouth.edu/graduate

Requests for URLs are granted on a first-come, first-served basis.  Before requesting a URL for a new web site, please check that your desired web address is not already in use. The Web Communications Team reserves the right to refuse requests for specific URLs.

When determining the URL for your site, please keep the following in mind:

  • Create a URL which will make sense to your audience and will be easy to remember.
  • Use all lowercase letters.
  • Do not use spaces or non-alphabetic symbols in your URL.
  • Try to avoid using underscores and dashes.

Alternate URLs

Departments may wish to purchase a domain name other than an approved URL for promotional purposes.  Because alternate domain names typically direct the audience to a non-plymouth.edu web site, alternate web sites are not recommended.  Instead, it is advisable that the department work with the Web Communications Manager to find an acceptable solution.
