Do I get a subdomain under Viburnix or an independent domain?
The motive of Viburnix is in the brand building of an organization and thus, each client gets their own customized domain name(e.g. for an institute the final URL would be like http://www.[institute _name]alumni.com. It is not a subdomain under Viburnix or any other website. This gives the impression to any external visitor that the college has separately developed the website and not merely subscribed to any Alumni community and helps in brand building.
