Request a Site

  1. Log in to
  2. Select “Site request form” on the left.
  3. Choose "Drupal 7 site" from the drop-down menu.
  4. Enter a valid shortcode (tracking purposes only - it will not be billed).
  5. Follow the prompts to specify a technical contact (your web developer, yourself, or a group email address), a site description, and a short name for your site. You can change the name of the site later, but this short name will be used in U-M Hosting’s records.
  6. When you submit your request it will be sent to the HITS Service Desk. When your request is reviewed and approved — generally within 2 business days — you’ll receive an email with a link where you can log into your site for the first time and set your password.
