Indiana State University is the owner of certain Internet address (IP) space and has registered certain domain names for its use. The purpose of this policy is to preserve and control the Internet domain name resources of the University for support of its mission of teaching, research, and service.
This policy applies to all students, faculty, and staff who use the Indiana State University network and systems.
880.3 Statement of Policy
880.3.1 Ownership. Indiana State University is the owner of the Internet address (IP) space 22.214.171.124 through 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 through 184.108.40.206, and uses the Internet domain name “indstate.edu”. ISU has also registered numerous other variants as a protection against the possibility of exploitation of University’s reputation by others. A list of these may be found at the OIT website.
880.3.2 Restrictions on Registration. ISU Internet (IP) addresses may not be registered for use with any other domain name except as permitted below.
8220.127.116.11 Domain Name Service. The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is responsible for implementing Domain Name Service (DNS) for all systems connected to the campus network, and for coordinating this service with other campus units. DNS resolves names and network addresses for network routing to on-campus and off-campus destinations.
818.104.22.168 ISU Domain Names. ISU departments, programs and approved activities are eligible to use indstate.edu top level domain names upon request to the Office of Communications and Marketing. This request must be from a dean or vice president and will either be approved by the Associate Vice President of Marketing or forwarded to the Vice Provost for Enrollment Management, for further consideration. Requests should be made to the Associate Vice President of Marketing.
822.214.171.124.1 Top Level Name. To be considered for a top level name, a server would need to be of global interest to the Indiana State University community (e.g. ithelp.indstate.edu).
Unusual name requests, circumstances, and issues will be referred to the Associate Vice President of Marketing for further consideration. Final determination will be subject to the approval of the Associate Vice President of Marketing.
