How do I get a custom domain name for my website
Custom domains are available through the university domain registration service.
The following instructions apply only to domains at the upper level such as yourdomain.illinois.edu. Department level domains such as yourDomain.ece.illinois.edu do not have a charge associated with them. For department level domains, email your request to email@example.com.
Engineering IT staff will register the domain for you. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information:
- Domain name
- Short description of the intended use for the domain
- Length of registration (1, 2, 3, 5, or 10 years)
- University account name and number to which any registration fees may be charged ($10 per year, up to $36.99 per year for .net, .org, and .com domains in addition to the $10 per year charge.)
Some restrictions to domain use and naming. For details see https://wiki.illinois.edu/wiki/display/ipamdocs/DNS+Standards#DNSStandards-acceptable.
