URL Requests

Redirect Requests

A redirect is a 'short-hand' URL that forwards the site visitor to another specified website, usually one which is otherwise reached through a longer, more detailed URL.

These custom short-URLs are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and are subject to University Marketing approval.

To obtain a short URL for your site, please request a sub-directory (e.g. uh.edu/anything) using the request form below.

Please note: Redirects pointed outside of the uh.edu domain will not be approved or implemented.

Subdomain Requests

All requests for subdomains (e.g. anything.uh.edu) should be made through the IP/DNS Management System.

Please keep in mind, we do not provide sub-domain redirect services. Sub-domain redirects are much more complex to setup, and are not shorter than sub-directory redirects, which can be created and modified quickly and easily.

Redirects pointed outside of the main uh.edu domain will not be approved or implemented.

Please note: Owners of uh.edu subdomains must request and be approved to be included in search indexing for the UH website. Contact: webservices@uh.edu.

Sub-directory Request:

Most requests are fulfilled within 48 hours.  All URLs request must be approved by Web Marketing and may delay the fulfillment of your request.
