Domain of one's own (dooo)

Own your space in a digital world

What's changed about Coventry.Domains?

If you’ve been a Coventry.Domains user prior to September 2020, don’t worry. Everything is still here, and you can access your site via that login button above.

We’ve added a new WordPress only service to Coventry.Domains available to all staff and students. The web hosting platform you’ve been using up to now will be referred to as the Domain of One’s Own service – a part of Coventry.Domains.

Go Beyond WordPress

Get direct access to cPanel so you can create something truly unique

Unlike our WordPress service, a Web Hosting account means you have to do more things yourself. In return, you get full control over the look and feel of your site.

You’ll be able to choose from a larger range of content management systems or simply have more customisation options for your WordPress site.

What can you do with DoOO?

While most users just need the WordPress only version of Coventry.Domains,
staff as well as students from selected modules can request a Domain of One’s Own account.
It’s closer to a web hosting account, so it requires more setup, but it allows users to access some of the following features:

Alternative CMS options

You’re not just limited to WordPress. With Web Hosting, you can install any open source CMS including Media Wiki, Drupal, Joomla and more.

FTP access

Want to practice your front-end coding skills? Use FTP to maintain your site. You can even hook it up to your version control system.

New themes and plugins

Can’t find your preferred theme or that killer plugin on Coventry.Domains WordPress? With Web Hosting, the options are endless.

How do I get an account?

Unlike Coventry.Domains WordPress, Web Hosting accounts aren’t available to everyone, so you’ll need to arrange access first.

Sign Up

Head to the sign up page where we’ll ask for permission to store your email address. Once you’ve confirmed this, you’ll be taken to a new page where you’ll be asked for your university sign in details.

If you’re eligible for an account, we’ll set up your domain and give you instructions for logging into your new web hosting account with Coventry.Domains

Start building!

Once your new account is ready, you’ll want to choose a subdomain and started on your first website. You can learn all about your new web hosting and how to get up and running by finding tips and tutorials at Coventry.Domains/Learn
