Once the websites are setup, you will be notified by email and can begin developing your web pages. 

Please note that you will be developing your web pages on dev3.bnl.gov (Windows IIS) or www2.bnl.gov (UNIX) if the pages are for the public domain or intranet.bnl.gov if the pages are for BNL eyes only.

To have your development website (dev.bnl.gov) published to the Windows IIS Production Server, send email to www@bnl.gov ( preferred method ), or call the Enterprise Service Desk ( helpdesk ) atx5522  to open a Service Call ticket, which will then be forwarded to us. Users working on intranet.bnl.gov or www2.bnl.gov will be able to work on live web pages and publish these pages by themselves. When logging into our web servers, be sure you are either logged in to the BNL domain or you may have to enter your user ID as BNL\[your user ID].
