All new sites will have “tarheels.live” as part of their web address (ex:tarheels.live/sitename). If you create a university-sponsored website on TarHeels.live, you may wish to request an alternative subdomain.
To qualify for a custom domain on the TarHeels.live network (unc.edu, *.org, *.net or any domain that is being used for University related business), you’ll need to:
- Select and build your website using the Heelium theme. (Other themes may not qualify for a *unc.edu domain)
- demonstrate that your website represents the work of the university,
- ensure that your website shows ownership and purpose to exhibit the site’s trustworthiness,
- submit your website to the Digital Accessibility Office for initial review,
- attest that the website meets and maintains accessibility requirements,
- pledge to attend accessibility training offered by the Digital Accessibility Office.
For additional information about custom domains, see our Help article about Domain Options on TarHeels.live.
