All organisations applying either for a new domain name, or modification, in the ac.uk domain must have an Approved Registrar Membership Account with Jisc, unless they are connected to the Janet network. There is no charge for organisations having an Approved Registrar Membership Account. However, this facility is generally only available to organisations who anticipate that they will be submitting a number of domain name requests through Jisc.

All new domain name requests from Jisc sites must be submitted by a listed Jisc contact within the Computer Centre, or equivalent for the site. Jisc customers may pay for their additional domain name requests in advance by either credit card or BACS payment. If sites are paying by BACS can they please advise the Naming Administrator and reference their payments as DNS.

Registrars will be advised of the reasons where domain name requests are rejected by the Naming Committee. It is the responsibility of the Registrar to ensure that they pass this information back to their customers. If the application is not successful the requester may appeal provided that the appeal is made within four weeks of the date of notification of the outcome of the request. Appeals will only be heard on the basis that the requester believes that the request meets the requirements of this policy.

Registrars, their customers, and Jisc Customers should be aware that the information supplied for registering domain names under ac.uk and gov.uk will be held and processed in Jisc's databases. It will be made available as a matter of public record by electronic enquiries made to Jisc and its whois servers. Jisc will also make this information available to other organisations and their legal advisers for the purpose of ascertaining the registrants of domain names. Such disclosure will be made only after checks on the bona fides of the enquirers have taken place.
