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. You can find further information about the application process is available with our Guidelines for requesting domain names within cam.ac.uk.

Delays in email delivery between PPSW and Exchange Online tenancies

Jan 22, 2020

Several institutions reported to us that messages to their Exchange Online tenancies were being blocked following routine maintenance to the central email switch (PPSW) on Monday 20 January. We believe we've discovered the cause and implemented a workaround that has cleared the backlog and will prevent this from happening again.
