Service Detail Sheet (pdf)
New York State agencies, local governments and municipalities must request approval from ITS for the use of a NY.Gov third level domain name (e.g., oft.ny.gov) or higher. The approval process can be initiated by submitting an online request form.
Upon approval, ITS will notify the agency or organization and work with them to update the DNS domain with their new entry.
The statewide DNS is available for NYS agencies to both advertise and resolve the name(s) of NYeNet accessible applications. To utilize the statewide DNS, you must have a circuit that is properly configured to communicate on the NYeNet. NYS DNS cannot resolve public Internet names. For information on NYeNet connectivity or advertising and application using the statewide DNS, contact the ITS Customer Relations Manager.
