FIND DNR WEBSITE ONLY AT DNR.WI.GOV

March 27, 2012

Older domain names are being phased out

MADISON -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website -- once reachable at a variety of web addresses -- will now be found only at one simple address: dnr.wi.gov.

"We've consolidated our website to use just one domain in order to reduce costs and improve consistency and customer service," says JD Smith, who is leading DNR's website redesign team.

"We look forward to continuing to serve our website users at that one domain name: dnr.wi.gov. Thanks in advance for updating your bookmarks, favorites, or links so you can reach our site the first time."

Beginning in early April domains that will no longer work when going to DNR's website include:

All of the above domains have been updated to use only the "dnr.wi.gov" domain, according to Jeff Margenau, of the DNR Office of Communications. For example, a bookmark or link to "www.dnr.state.wi.us/news" will need to be updated to "dnr.wi.gov/news". Anyone clicking on a link that uses an outdated domain will be redirected to a Web page explaining the need to update links to the dnr.wi.gov domain.

Anyone with general questions about the domain change can call DNR Customer Service line at 1-888-936-7463, open a chat session, or click on the feedback link in the footer of any DNR Web page.

"We invite people to visit DNR's newly redesigned website. We think you'll like it as we have expanded your search options and added keyword features. As always, we are looking for ways to improve our site," Smith said.
