If your domain is used to send or receive e-mail or if it is a DNS zone, it cannot be directly associated with webHosting.
In this situation, an HTTP redirect will be required to ensure that requests for your domain go to a DNS address associated with the webHosting server. This redirect is hosted on metro which is why the DNS record for your domain still points there. This is not an optimal solution and OIT is working on allowing these domains to point to webHosting. Until that is set up, the metro redirect will remain in place.

To connect to the webhostingservice, simply visit http://hosting.gatech.edu. If you are not using a wired campus connection, then you will need to utilize the Georgia Tech VPN to complete your connection to your site. hosting.gatech.edu will show your site, but without a VPN connection you will experience a page timeout when you try to browse to the site manager.

What is the benefit of this type of authentication?
Georgia Tech uses the Central Authentication System (CAS) to provide a centrally managed, single sign-on solution for campus web applications. WebHosting has integrated CAS support into the basic server configuration, which allows you to use CAS to restrict access to authenticated Georgia Tech users.
1. mod_auth_cas enabled on your hosting account (All of the web hosting accounts on Plesk have mod_auth_cas enabled globally.)
