On November 28, IT staff will make two changes to clean up the NDSU website:
- Retire the Web domain, www.ndsu.nodak.edu. NDSU officially switched from www.ndsu.nodak.edu to www.ndsu.edu in 2006.
- Remove URLs that start with www.ndsu.edu/ndsu (e.g., www.ndsu.edu/ndsu/about). These long URLs are redirects that point to a short version (e.g., www.ndsu.edu/about).
These changes were initially scheduled to take place in June 2016, but were delayed. As a final reminder, web authors, publishers and managers should review all NDSU-related web content to identify links pointing to www.ndsu.nodak.edu or www.ndsu.edu/ndsu/<something>, which will break on November 28. Update those links to provide a better user experience to your site visitors.
Instructions regarding how to identify and update links are available on the NDSU 2017 Web Clean-Up page.
