cPanel, Can websites be maintained after an owner leaves the University?
Websites must have a current member of the University of Illinois as an owner.
Ownership can be transferred from the departing person to a currently affiliated person or group of currently affiliated people. There are two steps to transferring ownership:
1. Open a request at https://go.illinois.edu/cPanelHelp asking that the primary contact for the account be changed to your successor
2. Add or change email addresses that are linked to the cPanel account using "Manage cPanel Access" from the cPanel dashboard.
Instructions for both steps can be found here: cPanel, Getting access and setting permissions
If the website owner has left Illinois and there are no other currently affiliated website maintainers, the site will be removed.
