Celebrate the birth of your new WordPress site!
Your new site is private by default. Meaning only you have access to it until you either add other Tufts users or change your site’s privacy setting. It is recommended that you keep your site private while it is under construction. When you are ready to launch it to the public (if that’s what you want to happen) you can do so at any time. Even if you are keeping your site private it is NOT recommended that you use WordPress for publishing highly sensitive information. WordPress is a popular platform and because of that it is a target for hackers and ne’er-do-wells and our instance IS NOT behind any special security firewall.
