As of June 3rd, 2019, Zipspace has been discontinued. Please contact the IT Help Desk if you have any questions

Information and Technology Services is announcing that ZipSpace, used for file storage and web hosting, is being decommissioned due to its declining usability and the availability of free, cloud-based alternatives. General file storage can be moved into OneDrive for Business for faculty and staff, or into your Google Drive for faculty staff and students. Web Hosting can be done through any of the following free alternatives: GitHub, Weebly, Wix, or Wordpress. These efforts will reduce the cost of storage for the university while providing a better user experience for both site admins and consumers.

For free alternatives to Zipspace:
GitHub
Weebly Free
Wix Free
Wordpress Free
