Retiring search.tamu.edu domain

August 14th, 2017 by Erick Beck

Please be aware that in the near future – sometime in the Fall – we will be retiring the search.tamu.edu domain.  This does not mean we are retiring the central Google CSE search; it will still be available at www.tamu.edu/search.

The search.tamu.edu domain is a holdover from previous iterations of the campus search, and has been largely unused for some time.  I looked through log files and it is getting very little traffic compared to www.tamu.edu/search. For the sake of reducing maintenance and overhead, we have made the decision to remove the service from that URL.

So those of you who still do have a search box that points to search.tamu.edu, please go ahead and start migrating the code for your forms.  I will let you know once we have a firm shut-off date.
