Customized Site Search
Since 2002, NYU has used the Google Search Appliance to handle searching on the nyu.edu domain. Google allows us to offer customized search result pages through the use of stylesheets. The stylesheet allows you to integrate the search result pages into the existing look and feel of your Web site.
Google's indexing robot starts at the top of the NYU Web site and follows links to find all index-able pages within the NYU search collection. All you need to do to get your Web pages into the main NYU Google index is:
- put the pages up in a Web space that is not excluded from the NYU search collection
- make sure your pages don't contain meta tags that prevent the robot from indexing your page
- make sure your page can be reached by clicking links from one of the top-level pages on the NYU site
There is no need to submit pages to the index: the Google crawler will pick up changed, new, and removed pages automatically during its scheduled crawls.
For any questions regarding the Google Search, or if your site is not housed on www.nyu.edu and you wish to have results appear in the main NYU search results, please write to the Web Team.

Web Server Hosting
NYU schools, departments, or project groups who wish to create websites that incorporate third-party, application-based functionality, or who require specific server configuration changes that cannot be accommodated on the enterprise web server, may be interested in contracting with NYU IT for a Web Hosting Server Level Agreement (SLA), a fee-based service.
The SLA provides a dedicated server on which NYU IT will install the basic operating system and required software (PHP, MySQL, etc.). NYU IT cannot support the administration of any third-party software that is installed, so the client must assign a primary technical administrator. This individual will receive an account on the machine in order to install applications.
The Managed Hosting service includes 10 hours of annual technical support, which encompasses day-to-day administration and maintenance of the operating system and server. NYU IT will monitor the system and provide core OS patching and upgrades, but the technical administrator will be responsible for implementing any updates to the software the client installs.
The Unmanaged Hosting service includes the installation of the basic operating system and some assistance with initial setup. Monitoring is provided.
For more information, see the NYU IT website.
Web Usage Statistics
Urchin, the industry leading web analytics software, is used on the NYU Web server. It analyzes traffic for one or more websites and provides accurate and easy-to-understand reports on your visitors - where they come from, how they use your site, what converts them into customers, and much more.
The Urchin Analytics application is available to those content providers who manage pages on the university CMS or who manage pages on the legacy (e.g. - non-CMS) NYU web server. Read more »
