Application for Registration of a Domain Name
Under the Monash Domain Name Policy updated and approved 24 February 2010, a Domain Name for a Monash Website or Monash-hosted Website must be registered by Monash with approval from the Executive Director, Information Technology Services (ITS). Approval will only be granted if the Website or "host" site meets the established criteria (see below). See also guidelines and tips for choosing a Domain Name.
