iCIT is responsible for administering the UWW.EDU domain officially acquired by the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. In this capacity, iCIT allocates, registers, arbitrates and maintains the "name space," guaranteeing best performance, fair use and compliance with DNS conventions and University of Wisconsin - Whitewater's policies.
All domains using University resources must reside on iCIT's domain name servers. iCIT is responsible for the security, operation and maintenance for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater network, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Departments, colleges and other university units are not allowed to setup their own domain name servers. Units that host their own servers must request domain names from iCIT, these names will be created and distributed on a case-by-case basis.
Support for other non-uww.edu domains will not be permitted. All hostnames for machines on the 140.146.x.x domain will reside in the uww.edu domain or sub domain. Users may not register their own domains for machines on the university network.
