You will receive an email before and after the process.
Your site will be locked for approximately one hour from content edits.
No down time is expected for your website.
URL patterns will change to subdomain patterns (e.g. lab.colorado.edu/sitename).
Redirects from old URL patterns to the new will be implemented during the migration.
Everything will work exactly the same, it is just your URL pattern that will change.
URL Pattern Changes
Currently we have URL patterns that group similar websites under a common structure. We will continue to keep these group URL patterns but they will change to a subdomain pattern. For example, the following URL patterns will change:
From colorado.edu/lab/sitename to lab.colorado.edu/sitename
From colorado.edu/faculty/sitename to faculty.colorado.edu/sitename
The URL patterns will give us greater flexibility in the future to meet the specific needs of different groups - particularly around search and findability.
