All ubc.ca subdomain requests must meet the following guidelines:
- Every unit is allowed ONE third-level domain. [?]
To qualify for a third-level domain name, your unit must be one of the following:
- A faculty;
- A department;
- A cross-disciplinary group that does not report administratively to any one department or faculty;
- A school;
- An institute;
- A service (e.g. Food Services);
All UBC units are listed in the UBC Faculty and Administrative Directory .
- A unit may be granted an additional third-level domain under the following conditions:
- The unit is either cross-disciplinary or managed and owned by multiple UBC departments*;
- The website is representative or serves the interests of the entire university, e.g. UBC's Strategic Plan is owned by the President's Office, but serves the entire university.
- All UBC units are allowed multiple fourth-level domains [?].
Check with the IT administrator of your unit for eligibility.
- Your unit must have the right to use the name.
Registering a domain name does not confer any legal rights to that name. Any disputes between parties over the rights to use a particular name are to be settled between the contending parties using normal legal methods. Subdomain requests must be approved by the department head.
