facility capable of hosting multiple web sites. DST
has subscribed 90 MBPS dedicated internet bandwidth
connected to the campus area network. Following are
the access mechanism for website management:

GoG for security, safety and better manageability. All websites belonging to GoG
should be hosted by the server farm facility owned by GoG.
