Campus DNS

The Domain Name Service provides network device name to Internet Protocol (IP) address mapping, and the reverse, IP address to host name mapping to enable network devices, web sites, etc. to be identified by a human readable name on the network.

Typically, an organization will setup a primary and secondary DNS server to offer redundancy and high availability. OIT manages two Campus DNS servers:

  • ns1.service.uci.edu (128.200.1.201)
  • ns2.service.uci.edu (128.200.192.202)

Registration and Management

To request a new entry (or to change an existing entry) in DNS, you can fill our new ServiceNow request form. A link to the form can be found here (as well as the top of this page), and we have instructions on how to fill out the form below.

Routine requests for changes in DNS records that are submitted before 2PM on weekdays will be processed between 3-4 PM daily. Special DNS requests require more lead time, so please elaborate on these types of requests in the Comments field on the form.

  1. To get started, use the pull-down menu to select the type of service you need, e.g. "Register IP Address".
    • Note: To see a description of what is expected in each field, click on "More Information"
  2. Proceed to fill out the rest of the form, and after you have entered the required information (as designated by a red asterisk *), select Order Now to submit your request.

You will then be presented with an Order Status summary of your request, and you will receive an email notification with a link to track the request.
