.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.
