Domain name policy

The Information Services Committee (ISC) is responsible for approving the University’s top-level domain names (TLDs) under cam.ac.uk.

It has devolved the management of this to UIS, which will provision an appropriately named domain where one of the following eligible categories applies:

  1. A recognised University Institution, Centre, or Institute
  2. Strategic research initiatives and strategic research networks
  3. A recognised University-wide service or initiative
  4. A request directly endorsed by a Pro-Vice-Chancellor (PVC) or the Registrary

For those ineligible for a TLD, a sub-domain of one of the following may be appropriate:

  • apps.cam.ac.uk — web applications
  • cloud.cam.ac.uk — cloud services
  • event.cam.ac.uk — conferences and symposia
  • fund.cam.ac.uk — funds and bursaries
  • group.cam.ac.uk — a recognised University group
  • masters.cam.ac.uk — inter-Institutional postgraduate degree-bearing courses
  • societies.cam.ac.uk — an established University society
  • TLD (an existing one)
  • tripos.cam.ac.uk — inter-institutional undergraduate degree-bearing courses.

In all cases, advice can be sought from the UIS Relationship Managers and applications should be made using an online form. Further information and a link to the form is available in our Guidelines for requesting domain names within cam.ac.uk.
