.edu Administration

EDUCAUSE, the association for information technology in higher education, is the sole registrar for names in the .edu domain. The Department of Commerce awarded management of the domain to EDUCAUSE in October 2001. Requests for new names in the domain are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for eligible institutions, and holders of .edu domain names must use this website to manage their domains and hosts. EDUCAUSE also is the exclusive provider of contact information for the .edu domain, available on the whois server.



We have updated our login procedures for .edu domain account holders requiring all domains to reset their password. If you have not reset your password as of September 18, 2017, please do so now. If your password has been reset, you would have received a password reset confirmation email.

Currently, select functionality including payments, request a new domain, and organizational address changes are not available. We'll notify domain holders when this is restored.

If you have any questions, please contact edu@educause.edu.
