One of the hidden tricks with CNSIT Pangea is its ability to allow a user to serve files via their personal space to the world through a web server.  This is handled via the “public_html” folder located in the root of  your personal Pangea space.  Don’t be surprised if you do not see this folder as it is not enabled for an account on default.  To request personal web space to be enabled, simply let CNSIT know by filling out a support ticket at the following URL: https://cnsit.natsci.colostate.edu/help.  CNSIT will then create the folder, and link it up properly so that it is served to the world.

Once you have your public_html folder, anything you place in there will be available to the world at the following URL, depending on your home department:

Biochemistry: http://sites.bmb.colostate.edu/eName
Biology: http://sites.biology.colostate.edu/eName
Chemistry: http://sites.chem.colostate.edu/eName

(eName is your CSU eName of course).

This space is useful not only for serving a personal web site, but also allows for the possibility of sharing large files with users off campus as the following article describes: http://wp.natsci.colostate.edu/cnsit/use-pangea-to-share-large-files-with-people-outside-of-csu

Enjoy!
