Can I buy a domain name for a server I do not own? [closed]

I’m in charge of a server in my school, I do not own it, but the way we access it (the website in the server) is by entering its IP, Can I buy a domain name for it without asking for permission even though Im not the owner?


Yes, you can, because there’s no such thing as a “domain name for a server”. Domain names are not attached to servers. You can buy any domain name you want, that’s not already owned by someone else, and then map it to any IP address you want. It doesn’t matter what, if anything, is currently attached to the Internet on that IP address.

Having said that, if you buy the domain and point it at your school’s server then they may not be very happy with you.
