OIT's dotNET Service is appropriate for departments engaged in the business of the University. It is designed for small-scale web applications that have low network bandwidth requirements, and are not CPU-intensive. To qualify for this free service, hosted web applications must be able to coexist on a shared server with many other departmental web sites. OIT dotNET services are primarily intended for Princeton faculty and staff and departments are responsible for their own web design and development work. Students and/or student groups are not eligible to own dotNET accounts without approval from a Dean.

As of October 24, 2014, no new dotNET accounts are being provisioned. The dotNET service will be retired on July 1, 2015.
