  • Can I use an external host ( for my website?

There is currently no policy in place for hosting domains on external hosts.

  • Can I have a .com or .org domain for a Tufts website?

That’s a loaded question. You can certainly go to an outside host and set up a .com or .org account. Note, however, that if you use the word Tufts anywhere in the domain, it’s still subject to the name use policy. If you would like to have your .com or .org hosted internally, you will need to talk to TTS. Start with the TTS Support Center:
