While the platform is supported by Stanford Domains Support locally at Stanford, we’re backed by our cloud vendor who provides support for the platform. User supports the development and maintenance of their own website(s) within their cPanel. While most patches are pushed out by cPanel, clients must insure their CMS and other applications, plug-ins, and themes are patch to prevent security vulnerabilities. Stanford Domains use policy is available to prepare and guide users with their site experience.
