How do I get a custom domain name for my website
Custom domains are available through the university domain registration service.
Engineering IT staff will register the domain for you. Send email to email@example.com 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.
