Domain Name Change
Submitted By: Mike Biddle, Information Technology
Department: Information Technology  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Approve Domain Name "nuecesco.com" for use in email messages, and replace "co.nueces.tx.us" as the primary email address.
BACKGROUND
Nueces County has used the Domain Name "co.nueces.tx.us" for e-mail since 2003. The e-mail address is used to communicate with employees, departments, contractors, governmental agencies, and the public on a daily basis. Microsoft Exchange 2010 has been implemented recently to upgrade e-mail, calendar, and contact services which facilitates the opportunity to change the domain name at this time. Numerous complaints about the complexity of the old domain name led to a search for a domain name that would be easier to use and remember.
DISCUSSION
Nueces County has reserved the Domain Name "nuecesco.com" in order to simplify the e-mail address used by county departments and employees. It will replace the Domain Name "co.nueces.tx.us" as the primary e-mail address which was considered overly complicated and difficult to use. Both domain names will continue to be used for an extended time to allow recipients, and county personnel sufficient time to make appropriate changes in e-mail accounts, contact lists, and stationary.
