UMass Create is a service currently in pilot that allows members of the UMass Amherst community to manage a hosted web space and install powerful, commonly-used web applications including WordPress, MediaWiki, Omeka and Drupal. Users can name their own web spaces (example: yourname.umasscreate.net) and take sites with them when they move on from UMass.
