Creating a website at KI
Which type of website or webpage works best to present my information? Is it a research study that needs a website, or a collaboration with several other universities?
Depending on the activity, there are three different ways to handle the issue:
Activities carried out at KI
If what is to be presented is a part of KI - i.e. research, education, administration - the information will be presented within the framework of ki.se.
A research project, study, information about a survey etc. should be found on the department's website. The presentation can be designed in many different ways, either a page if there is not so much information or a landing page when there is a need to present and collate a larger material with many parts and sub-pages.
When the information is located on ki.se, it becomes useful and all KI target groups can be reached (our visitor's recognizes it and there is a systematic way of surfing), credible (it's clear that KI is the sender) and searchable (the system we use has all components needed for an editor to do the right thing and KI has high rank in google search).
There is also a continuous management and development of the tool (Drupal) and a distributed editorial responsibility with a main editors in each department.
The domain name will always be ki.se/department/xxx. There is also the possibility of having short addresses to a page if necessary, so called alias.
- If you need a page on ki.se - contact the main editor at your department.

Collaboration with other organisations
If the project is a collaboration with another organisation where KI is not the sole sender and where the website needs to be more neutral in its design, it is possible to use KI's Wordpress installation. Typical examples of this type of website are centres or networks coordinated by KI.
The domaine name will always be xxx.ki.se.
Apply for a WordPress site by filling out the form to order a site in Wordpress.
It is also the WordPress installation that serves as KI's overall blogging tool for KI's management as well as for student ambassadors.
Activity not a part of KI
If the project has to do with KI, but where KI is not the main sender but one among many stakeholders, the website can not be under KI's domain. In these cases, you have to make a totally standalone website. The domain must not contain anything with "ki" and the appearance must not resemble KI. Examples of such websites are EU projects and consortia.
We do not link domains (xxx.se) outside KI to a site on KI.
The web administration has developed a simple solution for this type of web pages. Contact the web team, we can help provide consulting support.
If you are unsure of what to do or what type of website / website you should have, please contact the web administration at KI.
