Domain Options

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 unc.edu or web.unc.edu, 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,
  • attest that the website meets accessibility requirements,
  • pledge to attend accessibility training offered by the Digital Accessibility Office.
