Domain Name Registration
The Department of Information Resources (DIR), on behalf of the State of Texas, provides management, registration, and authorization for the use of the
texas.gov domain name.
Why Adopt a
texas.gov Domain Name?
To strengthen Texas government brand recognition,
texas.gov has been designated as the primary, outward-facing domain name for state agencies and counties. Using a texas.gov domain name assures citizens that your domain is an official, trusted Texas government entity.
Registering for a domain name is a two-step process.
