Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) is a project at the University of Mary Washington managed by the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies (DTLT). The DoOO project allows UMW students, faculty, and staff to register their own domain name and associate it with a hosted web space, free of charge while at UMW. With their Domain and corresponding web space, users will have the opportunity and flexibility to design and create a meaningful and vibrant digital presence. In December of 2016, the website needed to be redesigned because the old theme was no longer compatible with many of the plugins. While the site appears to be simple, it uses custom page to templates (e.g. one for a cPanel embed), custom css, Elementor page builder, and has over 2,500 users. The WordPress site houses the redirect to a single sign-on login, informational pages, and help guides (documentation), and pre-made slideshows for faculty who want to present concepts and digital tools to their classes.

Below are some screenshots of different pages on the DoOO site but you can also visit the site here.
