Getting Started Netfile
OIT has an active project to replace NetFile web publishing with a new service. Learn more at http://oit.nd.edu/web-publishing-replacement/
At this time, all Notre Dame accounts have a NetFile storage space that includes a “www” folder. Anything placed in this folder will be published on the web.
NEVER place sensitive information (such as social security numbers, credit card data, FERPA protected data, or HIPAA protected data) in your www folder.
NetFile is recommended only for advanced users who are comfortable with managing and editing HTML, CSS, or PHP code. If you prefer to work in a content management system you may wish to explore other web publishing options.
The most common way to publish your files to NetFile is with Secure FTP (SFTP). You can also connect directly to NetFile by mapping a local drive or folder to your local computer. Learn more about Publishing to NetFile
Access to NetFile sites is managed using an .htaccess file and Kerberos authentication. This will allow you to require visitors to log in with their NetID and password before viewing content. Learn more about controlling access to Websites in NetFile
