What is a domain?
Domain refers to how our network resources are structured.
What is .GOV?
DOTGOV is a top-level domain which is administered by CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency), a component of the Homeland Security Agency. Being top-level, DOTGOV is a more secure domain than @co.lancaster.pa.us, which is a 4th level domain.
Why are we changing to a new domain? By migrating to .GOV, we are ensuring benefits of improved security since CISA is in charge of overseeing .GOV. Also, legislation is being reviewed currently at the state and federal levels which may require this migration in the near future.
How does this affect the public? The e mail for county offices and employees will change to firstname.lastname@example.org .
