Subdomain Request Review Process
- A submission of the DNS/subdomain request form creates a Zendesk ticket within the College Communications system.
- The Digital Communications Team in College Communications then approves or denies the request.
- If approved, they transfer the ticket to the Technology & Innovation (T&I) Zendesk system.
- From there, members of the T&I team reach out to the site owner and verify that we have the correct point of contact and department listed for the site.
- T&I updates their records with this information.
- T&I assigns the ticket to the T&I Infrastructure team to finalize creation of the subdomain.
