Web Hosting, RSO Ownership Transfer Procedure

If your RSO has a campus-hosted website or wiki space, you can follow this procedure to change ownership from the current set of officers to the next set of officers.

If the current site owners are still available:

If you're an RSO officer and you'll be leaving your role in the RSO, graduating, or leaving the University, please pass along your website administration and permissions to another currently-active RSO member before you leave.

The current site owner can give permissions to the new owner as follows.

  • For a cPanel hosted website (web.illinois.edu):
    Your current site owner will want to give the new site owner both primary contact permissions and web interface access following the steps in cPanel, Getting access and setting permissions . The new site owner must be using an @illinois.edu email address for their identity, even if they have a separate Google account.

    In addition, if your cPanel site uses a content management system such as WordPress or Drupal, your new site owner will also need to receive administrative permissions to that system as well.

  • For a publish.illinois.edu hosted website:
    Your current site owner will want to give the new site owner administrator permissions following the steps in PIE, Adding users . The new site owner must be using an @illinois.edu email address for their identity, even if they have a separate Google account.

  • For a wiki site:
    Your current site owner will want to give the new site owner administrator permissions following the steps in Wiki, Add or Remove Users . The new site owner must be using an @illinois.edu email address for their identity, even if they have a separate Google account, and must already have logged into the wiki to be available for selection in the permissions management area.

If the current site owners are not available:

If the current website / wiki space owners are no longer available to initiate the transfer, we'll need the RSO organization's confirmation that you are a member of that RSO in order to change the ownership of the site for you.
  1. Make sure the RSO information is up-to-date: http://union.illinois.edu/get-involved/office-of-registered-organizations
  2. Send an email to: consult@illinois.edu requesting the ownership change.   

We will then verify the person requesting ownership is listed as an officer on the RSO page, https://illinois.collegiatelink.net/organizations, and change it.
