Persistent URL (PURL)

The marketing friendly, (vanity url), persistent URL is vital for electronic citation persistence on the web in the long term and for repository marketing/branding.

TRY TO ENSURE THAT THE NAME WILL NEVER CHANGE
  • Do not use www in the URL, see: http://no-www.org
  • Decide on a marketing friendly name for the repository.
  • This name should be short and simple to remember, easy to type into documentation and good for marketing/branding.
  • Ensure that the URL is clean with no forward slash redirects or port numbers. See links below.
