Long ReadAre you thinking of creating a Joomla website for a United Kingdom School, University, or Tertiary Education Organisation?

In this article we at UsingJoomla.com would like present this article on School, University, and Tertiary Education Organisation specific fourth level domain names.

Of course, you do not have to use a school specific domain name as presented in this article.

This article is presented in good-faith with the information available at the time of writing - however - we wholeheartedly invite you to contact us with any inaccuracies (and links to support your belief) or improvements to this article

There are rules regarding applying for, and obtaining, a United Kingdom .sch (dot sch) or .ac (dot ac) domain name.

Applications for a .sch (dot sch) domain should be made in writing to Nominet - the United Kingdom Registry for .uk domain names.

Specific requirements required by Nominet for the registration of .sch (dot sch) domains should be obtained from Nominet.

A school can have a domain name based on the school name and the County the school is located in, or the school name and the town/city that the school is located in.

Disclaimer:

Specific examples given in this article are not an endorsement of the linked to school(s) but are intended to give real-life examples.

A united Kingdom school domain usually takes one of the the following forms:

.[School-Name].[County-Name].sch.uk

Where [School-Name] is replaced by the name of the school, and [County-Name] is replaced with the name of the County

Or,

.[School-Name].[Town/City-Name].sch.uk

Where [School-Name] is replaced with the name of the school, and [Town/City-Name] is replaced with the name of the Town/City.

Examples:

https://www.romsey.hants.sch.uk/

https://www.kings-winchester.hants.sch.uk/

Universities and Tertiary Organisations (for example Colleges) follow a similar domain/url format:

[University-Name].ac.uk

Where [University-Name] is replaced with the name of the University.

Examples:

https://www.portsmouth-college.ac.uk/

https://www.port.ac.uk/

Below we have created a table listing the school domains for England, Scotland and Wales.
