In order to maintain customer trust and ensure a consistent experience when visiting TELUS digital properties it is important that the domains we use represent our brand in a positive way. We must also ensure that our domains have centralized security and operational controls, are highly rated by search engines, easy for customers to communicate to others, and easy to remember themselves.
Digital Platform Applications
Whitelabel/Vendor hosted TELUS solutions
Whitelabel/Vendor hosted TELUS solutions (not on RA/Digital Platform) must follow our standard subdomain substructure. We do not support the use of unique domains (e.g.
telusrocks.com) and no domains should ever be registered by third party and digital partner groups.
Digital Platform Applications must be configured to be routed through the inbound proxy
All other applications, including Whitelabel/Vendor hosted TELUS solutions:
1) Follow standard subdomain substructure
When requesting a TELUS subdomain, keep in mind the following:
- Subdomains must have the following format:
- The subdomain should represent the product or campaign name as clearly as possible
- The product/campaign name as part of the subdomain should be no more than 12 characters long
- Abbreviations and hyphens SHOULD be avoided
- The use of the brand name in the first part of the subdomain is not permitted (e.g.
- All product names must be approved through proper Brand/Marketing channels before a subdomain is set up
- The same structure requirements apply for other TELUS-owned brands (e.g.
- Some exceptional cases:
Telus.net- should be capitalized and limited to existing services already using it such as e-mail, TV and HSIA
Telusmobility.com- should be capitalized and limited to existing services already using it. Storefronts have already migrated over to
Mobility.ca- domain to be used when brand agnostic domain is needed, such as on MMS client that can be installed on TELUS or Koodo devices.
2) Requesting Digital Certificates
To request SSL certificate, the TELUS prime should email firstname.lastname@example.org who will create CSR request on behalf of the application owner. The cost of a new cert is $150 USD. If the upper level domain does not exist in Symantec then there is a one time $250 USD charge to get it created (additional $150 charge per server where cert is installed).
Please include the following in your email to
- manager name
- cost center
- number of servers on which the certificate will be installed
3) DNS requests
To request a new TELUS subdomain (or modify an existing one), a TELUS prime should follow the following internal process:
- Email CIDC.email@example.com with the request, it can simply state the following:
We would like to add/remove DNS record for xyz.telus.com
- You will receive a response from CIDC.firstname.lastname@example.org which will include the incident number (IN#).
- Visit GO/SensitiveDNSchange and complete the form found within the site. Add the IN# received from the CIDC team in the appropriate field.
