Domain Name Registration

DNR or DNS Registration

DNS is an abbreviation for Domain Name System, Domain Name Server, Domain Name Service, or even Dynamic Name System, all of which are different forms of the same thing. Another term, DNR (Domain Name Registration), is the same as DNS.

ICN provides primary and secondary DNS to connect your organization to the outside world. Secondary DNS provides peace of mind in case of problems with the primary DNS.

IP addresses form the basis for locating equipment on a network, large or small, such as an office LAN (Local Area Network) or the Internet. A Domain Name Server (DNS) provides directory service and translates a word or name like those listed below into a numeric IP address such as 123.45.67.8. The ICN has naming authority for the following domains.

  • Education: k12.ia.us; cc.ia.us; pvtk12.ia.us; tec.ia.us
  • Libraries: lib.ia.us
  • State Government: state.ia.us

To request a domain name, submit the form below. Please allow 7 - 10 days for the request to be completed. The ICN will coordinate with InterNIC. You will not need to contact any other organizations or entity yourself. If you have any questions, please contact hostmaster@icn.iowa.gov.
