Domain names discontinued

We are planning completion of a long process of shutting down the server “Elle”. It will be shut down on 18 June 2016. This will make the domain names listed below invalid.

If some of these domains shall still be used, they need to be moved to another server. Those who want to have their domain names redirected to another site/location should register  an issue to that effect in Issue-tracker.

All traffic from studentportal.uib.no will be redirected to the new portal mitt.uib.no.

Please feel free to contact Michael Eric Menk (michael.menk@uib.no) if you have any questions regardin the discontinuation.
