Domain name and IP management

IST provides registration for both uwaterloo.ca hostnames and external domain names, and manages campus DHCP configurations.

uwaterloo.ca hostnames are managed using the Infoblox system. 

For staff and faculty wishing to register an external domain name and associate it with a system on the University wired network, IST can register the domain and perform all related configuration tasks.  Prior to engaging IST, interested parties are asked to first seek approval from the Secretary of the University and the Vice-President, University Relations.
