Four Proposed .edu Changes Open for Public Comment

EDUCAUSE manages the .edu domain name space to help maintain its integrity as the TLD for institutions of higher education.

The four .edu policy change proposals, which are now open for comment, are posed to:

  • address the legitimacy of grandfathered domains,
  • allow .edu eligible institutions to hold up to two .edu domains,
  • extend eligibility to higher education membership entities, and
  • provide access to the .edu zone file where needed.


Learn more about these proposals and let us know what you think on the Policy Comment Forum. The deadline for commenting is July 3, 2012.
