Web Hosting - Selecting a Domain

Primary Domain:

  • Each Web Hosting account has a primary domain. When you apply for a web account, you will select the URL to use for your site. (For Example: yoursite.wisc.edu, where "yoursite" is a unique name and usually an abbreviation of your department, institution, etc.)

  • New domains in the ".wisc.edu" domain space are subject to specific guidelines for approval. For more information, please see the DoIT DNS Name Selection Policy.

  • Our service can also accommodate other non ".wisc.edu" domains such as ".wisconsin.edu", and .org's and .com's.

If you already have a site and would like to switch it over to the Web Hosting service, we can easily transfer your current URL, please see [Link for document 29540 is unavailable at this time]).Network - DNS Registration FAQ

Additional Domain(s):

Sometimes it is necessary or useful to add additional domains to your Shared Hosting account. For information about adding more domains please see Web Hosting - Adding Domains to Your Account.
