    Re: .sch.uk domain server questions..anyone?

    Dude, that's my old school...I'm in my second year at uni now. So i've not been at SFA for about a year and a half.

    I don't actually think i've ever said on EduGeek what my school was called. There's a first for everything

    Re: .sch.uk domain server questions..anyone?

    My .sch.uk domain is directed to a virtual server, so I've complete control over what software is run on it, and the security of the server so it was straight off with IIS, and on with Apache! Just found out last week they would have provided us with a linyx server insted of windows if we'd requested it too. Damn!

    Mike.

    We host the website on our own server (we are a web hosting business!) Have over 130 domains, just never worked out how to get a .sch.uk!!

    We host on linux (well plesk) if anyone interested!!

    Re: .sch.uk domain server questions..anyone?

    If I remember right (it was a few years ago) I had to approach Schoolzone to get our .sch.uk name released (Don't know why!!) And I agree www.maestegcs.bridgend.sch.uk is a long name to remember and type especially when you add in https: and /exchange!!

    edit - And we host our site internally, so we can pretty much run what we want on it!

    Re: .sch.uk domain server questions..anyone?

    .ac.uk domains are only available to institutes that are primarily for tertiary education and are controlled by UKERNA. More information is available here

    A few schools have managed to get .ac.uk but this is usually because they have links with universities and they had their first 'Net connection via them.

    Schools will no longer get .ac.uk domains.

    For more information about .sch.uk domains please have a look at the schools section of the Nominet site.

    Re: .sch.uk domain server questions..anyone?

    Hi All,

    Here's the official response from nominet....

    In order to apply for a .sch you will need to have the geographical area
    as part of the domain name as prestonprimary.sch.uk is not a .sch domain
    name. As in the .stockton.sch.uk meets the requirements for showing the
    geographical area part of the domain name.

    The domain name therefore needs to read schoolname.geographicalarea.sch.uk

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah tell me about it!! my school domain name is:
