:: The INDOLOGY website is changing
The INDOLOGY website will shortly be moving from one internet host to
another. There will also be a major upgrade of the interface. These
changes are made possible by a grant from the British Academy's Society
for South Asian Studies, and the expertise of Richard Mahoney in both
indology and web programming. I am most grateful to the SSAS and to
Richard for their support in making these upgrades possible.
:: What these changes will mean for you?
The INDOLOGY website is officially at the address
This web address will remain the same. But there may be some hiccups in
the service over the next week or so, while we move this address from one
service provider to another. This change takes place behind the scenes,
and the address http://www.indology.info itself doesn't change. I think
that the shorter address http://indology.info will also work, but I won't
be certain until the change is complete.
As I write this (Friday evening, 2 December), the longer address may take
you to a new dummy page, and the shorter one (without "www") still takes
you to the old indology pages. These transitional disturbances will
settle down soon.
:: What about the old UCL address?
For many years the INDOLOGY website has run out of my personal account at
In fact, until now, the www.indology.info address was nothing more than a
redirection to my UCL account.
My UCL address will continue to take you to the old INDOLOGY website for a
little while. It's use is deprecated. I would ask you please not to use
it in your own websites or bookmarks. Soon, I'll change it so that it
automatically forwards your browser to the new INDOLOGY website at
www.indology.info . But in the long run it will die out as a reference to
the INDOLOGY website.
:: Now and the future
Changing the INDOLOGY website interface has been fun. But it also long
overdue. Richard and I have discussed it and checked the new site,
although Richard deserves all the credit for its highly professional
styling and rigorous formal correctness. The actual content is broadly
the same as the former website, although we have done some work on dead
links. A future phase of the project will -- subject to funding --
restructure and develop the content substantially.
