usask.ca Domain

All "usask.ca" web domain names must be approved by ICT. Good domain names will clearly communicate the main identity and/or purpose ofthe website while considering the broader concerns.

www.usask.ca/sitename (or sitename.usask.ca)

Official U of S webpages are usually hosted on the main web server (www.usask.ca).

The rule for top-level web space and virtual domains is that general addresses must contain general content. So, for example, www.usask.ca/events should be for all campus events, not just one college's events. Also, whenever possible, if www.usask.ca/<name> and <name>.usask.ca usask.ca exist, they should be equivalent (e.g. www.usask.ca/ict and ict.usask.ca).

** Important: when submitting a request do not assume you can have whatever you want. Requests may be rejected.

The usask.ca namespace and the campus DNS servers are managed by ICT Platform Services. The usask.ca name is used for many types of things (web servers, email, file servers, desktop computers, etc.). Official U of S units can have usask.ca names and sometimes they're given to affiliated groups as well, but those are treated on a case-by-case basis.
