Information Services is responsible for implementing and/or delegating Domain Name Service (DNS) for ALL systems connected to the campus network and for coordinating this service with other campus units. DNS provides mapping between domain names and their IP addresses used for routing of network traffic to all destinations.
Deans or department heads or appropriate designees may request a domain name via the Domain Name Request Form. The service is free for the initial setup of the domain name through network engineering, although individual areas may have fees associated with hosting and management of the domain name.
The following types of domain names are available:
Third level domain name, e.g. engineering.oregonstate.edu.
Unique domain name e.g. poweredbyorange.com. Such domains may be approved only on the condition that the URL is rewritten to reflect an oregonstate.edu domain name. For example, a hostname like project.org might be approved on the condition that when visitors put project.org into their browser, the URL is rewritten to oregonstate.edu/project.
The domain name committee will review the request. The review process can take up to one week.
Domain Name Policy
Please review the Domain Name Policy prior to submitting a request for a domain.
