Why does my site address include muwww03-new.marshall.edu rather than www.marshall.edu

As part of the transition to a new web server, it is necessary to run both servers in parallel for a period of time, and to make both of these servers addressable and reachable from a web browser.

In early 2013, the server you see identified as muwww03-new.marshall.edu in your browser address bar will assume the name www.marshall.edu.  This change will not require that you do anything differently in order to reach your site.

If you have a site on the server addressed as muwww03-new.marshall.edu during the transition, it should be possible to reach your site by typing www.marshall.edu/sitename as well. Please refrain from using the muwww03-new.marshall.edu address in marketing collateral, as it is unnecessary and only intended to be a temporary name to facilitate server and site transition.

If you have any questions, please contact the web team at webfeedback@marshall.edu.
