Quick and easy domain management

SURFdomeinen makes managing domains quicker and easier. You don't need to send in any forms, and you make the necessary changes in real time. You also always have useful records of your domains available. DNS management is also a lot more efficient because you are in control yourself.

Online portal for domain management

SURFdomeinen offers a handy online portal, which allows you to easily:

  • Register new domain names (.nl, .com, .eu, .info, .net, .org)
  • Migrate domain names to SURFnet
  • Cancel domain names
  • Alter the details of registered parties or contact persons
  • Change nameservers
  • Set DNS/reverse DNS
  • Manage NS zones that are not located on SURFnet's nameservers
  • Enable DNSSEC for .nl, .com, .net, and .org domains

Who is it for?

SURFdomeinen is available for institutions that are connected to the SURF network, and aims at IT administrators. The latter must hold at least authorisation as the Domain Responsible Party or perhaps DNS administrator. The roles can be allocated by the institution's contact person via SURFdashboard.
