As well as managing the ox.ac.uk, oxford.ac.uk domains and related reverse DNS zones, OUCS can provide hosting for domain names related to the university and its constituent colleges and departments. In general these will have been purchased commercially (eg org.uk, .com zones). Some projects may be eligible for their own ac.uk domain; please see JANET guidelines for more information.

Please note that this document is concerned with domain registration and DNS hosting only. These are separate from other services that may be required for a domain. Hosting for web, email and other services will need to be arranged separately, either within a college or department, on the OUCS central webserver (subject to approval), from NSMS, or from commercial hosting providers.
