RU-Camden Information Technology no longer routinely sets up multiple virtual hostnames for a site because using multiple identities for the same web site confuses visitors. Major search engines have also changed their ranking methods in recent years to penalize what they perceive as duplicate sites, so having multiple hostnames may hurt a site's performance in search engines.

Over the years some older web sites have accrued multiple virtual hostnames through system migrations and departmental name changes. RU-Camden Information Technology staff watches for links to older hostnames and updates them so the legacy hostnames may eventually be phased out over a period of years.
