Overview

The following is a list of the common Infrastructure (Operations) frequently asked questions.

Adding Internal (SOCKS) Developer Accessible Domain to va.gov

This answers questions related to adding new a domain to va.gov like example.va.gov.

  1. Contact Infrastructure team(Operations) Team.

The recommended process is to use a domain like example.vfs.va.gov since the Infrastructure team(Operations) team can simply add a CNAME entry to support that name.

If you want the actual example.vfs.va.gov name, then there is a longer process and this includes a WASA scan and filling out additional forms.

2. Also the location of the website matters. You may be limited as to where the domain can point using the example.vfs.va.gov and may have to move the website to another hosting location.
