Determine the right time to build (or rebuild) your website

Planning, building and launching a new website is a major project requiring dozens (or even hundreds) of hours of focused work. Before you begin, make sure the time is right time for your department, office or unit to begin a substantial website project.

If you elect to build or rebuild your website in BrownSites 2/University Theme, you will be required move it again in six to 12 months. 

In 2018 the University launched a project to completely rebuild www.brown.edu. Because this project will require that all current BrownSites be migrated into a new version of the content management system, you may want to delay your website launch or rebuild plans. If you elect to move ahead — building a new website or rebuild your current site now — you will be required to move the site to Brown's new web platform in six to 12 months
