Access and requests

Request an asu.edu subdomain

asu.edu subdomains are granted on a case-by-case basis. All submitted requests for an *.asu.edu subdomain/URL are reviewed by the ASU web governance board.

Note: asu.edu URLs must be approved by the ASU Web Standards Governance Board prior to inclusion in any communications or marketing materials. 

ASU subdomain and hosting standards have been revised as of July 2021 and apply to all new asu.edu subdomain and website hosting requests.

Keep in mind:

  • All new websites must adhere to the ASU Web Standards.
  • All ASU websites using a top-level “asu.edu” subdomain (example: chs.asu.edu)  must be hosted on ASU approved hosting.
  • Where applicable, using a more specific subdomain, such as *.lab.asu.edu versus *.asu.edu, has a greater likelihood to be approved.

The following may not be approved:

  • Common (generic) subdomains/URLs that are broad and could apply to universitywide (or multiunit) work, programs, efforts, initiatives, etc.
    • Example: sparky.asu.edu — the site would need to cover all aspects involving Sparky at ASU. 
  • Top-level asu.edu subdomains for organizations, courses, events, faculty members, labs, unit-specific initiatives.

If your request falls under either of these categories, please submit your request with the appropriate subdomain format detailed below.

Organization, course, event, faculty member or lab subdomains

 

These topic-centric subdomains will instead be granted on a first-come, first-served basis and do not require governing board review and approval.

  • *.club.asu.edu (student organizations)
  • *.org.asu.edu (faculty / staff organizations)
  • *.courses.asu.edu
  • *.events.asu.edu
  • *.faculty.asu.edu
  • *.lab.asu.edu

Unit subdomain subsites

If you are requesting a subdomain or a URL for a project, program, service, initiative, etc., on behalf of a unit with an existing asu.edu subdomain, please first check with your unit communications/web lead to determine if the new site can be a subsite of the unit’s existing site (example: chs.asu.edu is the unit subdomain for the College of Health Solutions). The approval of unit subsites is at the discretion of the unit.

*.yourCollegeSchoolOrUnitName.asu.edu (example: employees.chs.asu.edu)

asu.edu subdomain/URL request form

 

Please note that approvals may take up to three business days. Subdomain/URL requests that involve top-level domains and do not follow the recommendations listed above may take longer.

I understand that ASU branding must be reflected on my website. I have reviewed ASU’s web standards and understand the expectations set forth in this documentation. If this subdomain request is approved by ASU’s web governance board, I will be responsible for ensuring that current ASU web standards are implemented and maintained on the website hosted at this subdomain, including meeting and maintaining current security standards. The board reserves the right to revoke subdomains that do not adhere to the ASU web standards. Noncompliance with ASU’s web standards will result in launch delays and possible revocation of previously approved subdomains. 

For more information regarding ASU Web Standards, please visit Enterprise Standards: for all ASU sites and the pre-launch asu.edu web standards checklist.
Please only enter one subdomain per submission.

Consider that more user-friendly URLs can be created at the unit level, by the unit, for redirects: chs.asu.edu/employees could be set up as a redirect to employees.chs.asu.edu for use in communications. In this example, employees.asu.edu or asu.edu/employees would not be approved as a redirect to employees.chs.asu.edu.
Please note that Pantheon is ASU’s approved vendor for web hosting. If you’re not using Pantheon, review the following university policies: Vulnerability Management Security Standard and ASU Secure IT Development Standard.
