Contact the Janet Service Desk to:

  • change resource records in your DNS zones
  • request web administration account for PNS hosted domain

  • comment, ask questions or make complaints about the way the service works, the level of service received, or the documentation for the service.

Fault reporting

If an organisation believes that their e-mail or web services are not working properly, it is strongly recommended that they contact their service provider in the first instance, to help diagnose exactly where the problem lies. In the case of FE colleges, this will be the corresponding Regional Support Centre (RSC). Otherwise contact the Janet Service Desk if:

  • you see errors in your domains or reverse zones
  • there is an incorrect zone delegation (details of secondary nameserver etc)
  • you have some emergency, such as a need to immediately update a resource record
  • one of your domains seems to be unavailable
  • there is inconsistency between primary and secondary nameservers.
