University AFS-Hosted Website Addresses Updated

Thursday, August 12, 2021 - 09:41


The addresses of personal websites hosted on the University’s Andrew File System (AFS) recently changed from to (where username is the University username of the individual hosting the website).

Attempts to access AFS-hosted websites using the previous address format are being redirected automatically to the new address. Owners of AFS-hosted websites do not need to take any action, but are encouraged to use the new address in communications going forward.

AFS is a distributed file system that provides Pitt users with a limited amount of storage space and the ability to host a small website. Some students, faculty, and staff use AFS to publish a personal website, and some instructors use it to host a website for their class.  

Please contact the 24/7 IT Help Desk at 412-624-HELP (4357) if you have any questions about this announcement.
