Hello,

I've been using purl.org in several projects and have 11 domain approved and active.
Now I wanted to delete some of them and to add a new one but I discovered that such options are no more available.
I cannot find nothing about it in the documentation.
May be I have reached the maximum amount of domain? But then why the system does not allow me to remove some?
Could someone help me out with this?

thank you

best,

Christian

Hi Christian,

We had the same issue and Jeff Young (cc’ed) mentioned that the new domain function has been disabled for general use. I am not sure whether a replacement mechanism will be provided or if requests should be manually sent to Jeff/someone else; maybe he can provide more details.

Cheers,
Melanie

The new protocol is to send a request to Jeff, who will create or delete the domains. At some time when Jeff has time we should probably get together and understand the rationale for this and see if we can put in place a process in which there isn't a single point of failure for it. For now, however, Jeff has and continues to be able to respond to such requests and so you should consider that the working protocol until you hear otherwise.

Best,
Alan

Thank you for teh reply.
What I wanted was to add a "/gramsciproject" domain, that I will use for RDF data in my research project (e.g. http://dizionario.gramsciproject.org). My purl user is christian.morbidoni.
Would that be possible?

thank you for your help

Christian

Hi there,

Just checking in to see if Jeff is correctly included in this mail. I would send a private message but I cannot see the full email address from here.
Please let me know if you can create the new domain.

best,

Christian

Hi All,

Likewise, I have existing domains and I'd like to add a new domain for "/ncanda" with the maintainer id of "nicholsn" for a vocabulary I'm building for this project: http://www.ncanda.org/

Cheers,

Nolan

Why request purl.org/ncanda when you already have ncanda.org registered in DNS? DNS is more direct and dependable.

Greetings all,

As a new user needing to set up a new domain for a linked data project my primary concern is whether or not this service is actively supported. If certain features are being disabled now how likely is it to be around in the future? Are there other options for hosted purl services?

Hi Jody,

Some thoughts, which I hope will be helpful:

1. OCLC has made a long term institutional commitment to support purl.org. Nobody knows when it will end, but it is one of the oldest continuously operating services on the Web, having started in 1995. (NB: I am in no way affiliated with OCLC and do not speak for them)

2. Another public persistent URL service is available at w3id.org. That service is run by the W3C Permanent Identifier Community Group. (NB: I do participate in the running of that service)

3. The Callimachus Project (callimachusproject.org) provides Open Source software to run your own PURL service. The PURL code that OCLC runs (available at purlz.org) is slowly be replaced by the Callimachus implementation. You should sign up for the Callimachus mailing list if you want to track development there. The project currently intends to support all PURL functionality by March 2015, and also includes some additional options. The replacement has always been the plan but the implementation of partial PURLs was delayed for unimportant reasons. (NB: I am also active in the Callimachus project)

Perkins, Jody

Thanks David - I'll take a look at some of these other options.
