This is hosted from a Tri located service based around UK data centres run by Janet/JISC.



On Behalf of Lincolnshire County Council we operate a DNS hosting service for emPSN connected schools.

To check your domains Tag please use – https://www.nominet.uk/whois/ – and enter your .sch.uk domain name.

Schools with domains under the LINCSCC TAG should contact support@empsn.org.uk for support and changes around their domain.  Upon receipt of the request we will work to complete the change within 5 working days (although these are typically done sooner.) Changes will be made during working hours 0800-1730 only.  If you need to book a date / time for changes please give us notice and we will do our best to accommodate.
