Student Web Space

SOIS Students have access to free space on our LAMP server. A LAMP environment is a standard open source software stack. This acronym stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. With this service students have the ability to learn and experiment with Web Design and Development.

SOIS Students will be granted:

  • 5GB of Space
  • MySQL Databases
  • FTP Access
  • But wait.. There's more! Login to your account's control panel for the extensive list of features.

This space is to be used for SOIS course purposes ONLY. If you wish to use the web space for any other educational purposes please notify SOIS Tech ( to ensure your account is not suspended and terminated.

The server will be purged each semester, and will not be backed up. It is highly recommended that students retain copies of their website offline.
