Allocation of Internet domains

If you need your own Internet address (domain) for your project, we can register the desired domain for you with our provider. You can then provide your own websites under the domain and also have e-mail addresses set up on our central e-mail and groupware system.

Many top-level domains (TLDs - e.g. .de, .com, .org, .net, .eu etc.) are available; please enquire about individual availability.

There is a one-off charge for registration and an annual fee for maintenance. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to support@rz.tu-clausthal.de.

Web and content management systems

The computer center operates a university-wide content management system (CMS). This offers web hosting in the TUC layout for the institutes and facilities, which also includes domain administration.

As a user, you receive access to the Typo3 backend of the website via a corresponding account. Typo3 allows even inexperienced users without knowledge of the underlying technology and programming to easily manage website content. With the help of templates and layout specifications provided by the data center, you can design the layout and structure of the website and insert and maintain content. The editorial manual is designed to make your work in Typo3 easier and to show you the options and specifications for creating and editing pages.


The data center offers the option of providing static websites on a Linux Apache server. This allows users to create and manage their own websites in HTML. A common and generally preferable alternative is the use of Typo3 for website design (see Web and content management systems).

Server housing

Server housing is used to house IT systems of TUC institutes in the central machine room of the data center. We take care of the power supply, installation in 19" racks, connection to the IT network infrastructure and air conditioning. Sufficient security is ensured with fire protection, intrusion protection, access control and building monitoring systems. The administration of the systems is carried out by the requesting employee of the respective institution.

The data center also provides virtual machines in a clustered infrastructure. You can apply for the creation of virtual machines with the Windows or Linux operating system. All conditions can be found in the linked form.
