About the project

Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) is a project at the University of Mary Washington that allows all members of the UMW community to register their own domain name with associated web hosting space. 

With their Domain and corresponding web space, users will have the opportunity and flexibility to design and create a meaningful and vibrant digital identity. 

The most popular types of sites are student portfolios and course sites, but users aren’t by any means, limited to those. Currently, there are over 3,000 domains on DoOO!
