Google Sites is an easy way to create web pages, for example for projects or societies. You can control what is public and what is private.
Sites are easy to create, and you don't need to know how to write HTML or other code.
All staff and students with an IT Services account can create Google Sites.
Creating a web page using Google Sites is as simple as writing a document, and you can easily embed documents, presentations and videos to develop interactive websites.
No additional software is required - you just need access to the web to view or edit your Site.
Your Site can use customisable themes, colour schemes and page templates.
Google Sites integrates with many other Google services so, for example:
The URL of your Google Site will be:
Where a Google Site is public facing - eg a recognised conference, event, significant project or similar - you can request an customised name of the form "nameofsite.york.ac.uk". This needs to be submitted to email@example.com by your Departmental Computing Officer.
Please note, Sites aren't intended to replace department web pages on the University website.
