Website hosting


NOVA FCSH offers an infrastructure dedicated to website hosting for research units or projects, teachers and students of the institution. This infrastructure consists of a virtual platform hosted in a climatized data center, protected by a firewall and a backup system.

Website hosting is free and liable to available resources.


Fábrica de Sites

The IT Centre recommends users to create their websites using a WordPress platform, which is available through the ‘Fábrica de Sites’. It ain’t the responsability of research units to update  WordPress and its plugins in the ‘Fábrica de Sites’ since it’s the IT Centre that has this particular task, which ultimately provides better security conditions, availability and longevity to websites.

Usage rules for the ‘Fábrica de Sites’ are available at the Intranet.

The servers infrastructure of the IT Centre is also available for hosting projects and apps that encompass specific technologies, that aren’t compatible with WordPress.
