  • Your Domain Name Must Be Available – The most common choice for UNF Faculty Domains will probably be your first and last name.

If not your name, your domain can reflect your interests, the name of a project, or a hobby. Or it could just be your name. The “right” domain for you is the one you’re comfortable with.
