Generally, all institutions of the University of Mannheim can request a virtual web server. It is required that your web project cannot be implemented in the content management system TYPO3. The Marketing department will decide whether or not your request is approved. Please send your request to: onlineredaktion. uni-mannheim.de

Please let us know if you have a specific domain name in mind and inform us about the databases and additional programs you require (we offer MySQL databases and the standard applications of a Linux SUSE distribution). We do NOT install third-party programs).
Please note that the domain names usually follow the “xyz.uni-mannheim.de” logic.
In exceptional cases virtual web servers can be operated with an external web address. This is at the Marketing department’s discretion. If your external domain has been approved, you need to request the external domain you want to use. You can do this via BelWü (= Baden-Württembergs extended LAN) here. Upon request, you can also request .COM- / .NET- / .ORG domains as well as .INFO- / .BIZ domains. In this case, please contact hostmaster. belwue.de
Before you start the registration, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org to request an IP address for your virtual web server. You may need this for registering your domain with BelWü.
For registering your domain with BelWü, you will need this form. Here you can see a template filled in by us. Please enter your personal data in the relevant fields of the BelWü online form. Please enter the other data as shown in the template.
If BelWü has created your domain, please contact the University IT via the form mentioned above and include the external domain data.
After your virtual web server has been approved, a user ID is required. This user ID has to be a so-called Funktionskennung. This means that the ID is not linked to a person but to a function, institution or chair.
Explanation: The ID is created for a natural person, however it is not linked to Jane Doe but, for example, to the chair of XYZ or the ABC initiative.
Please request your Funktionskennung as follows:
