Education Domains

.ACADEMY
.ACADEMY joins a host of generic term, open registry TLDs in offering definable Web space that’s relevant to numerous businesses and organizations, but not restricted in use. .ACADEMY is well-suited for schools and educational institutes that identify as an academy, but can also be used by recruiters, advisors, advertisers, students, teachers, and administers affiliated with an academy. Because of its flexible use, .ACADEMY is an obtainable, unique, and marketable domain namespace.
.COLLEGE
.College is an easily adaptable, unrestricted global domain extension for academic institutions, education-related services, corporations and students who are seeking an online presence. When registering a .College domain name, users will not be held to any specific accreditation requirements, and there will be no restrictions in the number of domain names they are able to obtain. As the first extension of its kind, .College opens the door to new opportunities and innovation online.
.COURSES
.COURSES represents Open Australia Universities, and will be run as a restricted registry for the purpose of promoting online courses within the OAU network. OAU is a non-profit organization owned by seven major Australian universities, with a drive to provide relevant and credible educational resources online. .COURSES furthers this mission by establishing a trustworthy namespace for students, professors, universities, and affiliates, to communicate, network, and promote.
.DEGREE
As a unit of measurement, “degree” can be used to talk about the weather, quantities of materials or energy, or stages of educational development. Whatever the application, .DEGREE is the perfect TLD. .DEGREE can be used by educators, universities, and testing programs that help students earn degrees either completely or partially online. .DEGREE can also be used by sports teams that use “degree” to indicate a ranking, or by scientists that take measurements to create data analysis.
.EDUCATION
All over the world, people pursue education in many forms. And whether a user is looking for a pottery class in their neighborhood this weekend, or looking to enroll in an international college for a graduate degree, .EDUCATION will offer a hub for all the resources and information that user might need to make an informed decision. .EDUCATION can be registered by any individual, group, or organization, and is perfect for all schools, resource providers, scholarship hubs, and educational sites.
.MBA
The Master of Business Administration, or MBA, is a highly sought degree for everyone from businesspeople to presidents—and the network of MBA students, schools, professors, and services is expansive. The .MBA extension provides the perfect namespace for the degree and people who have one. Whether lending professional credibility to an MBA-holder or enhancing search-ability of MBA-related educational information and services for MBA seekers, .MBA provides an extension that signals professionalism.
.PHD
For those who are studying to complete, or have obtained their Ph.D. degree, .PHD offers a relevant and credible TLD option that both creates a network of PhDs and support services, and helps PhDs reach-out to the global Web community, as a whole. Any individual, group, or organization may register .PHD, so this domain extension is not only for PhDs themselves, but also the universities, educators, training programs, academic publishers, and campus groups that support them.
.PROF
Between 2000 and 2010, college enrollment grew by an astonishing 37 percent, and it continues to grow. Amid all that growth, the .PROF extension provides a specialized, targeted namespace for connection with the front lines of education: the professors themselves. Whether connecting with students, peers or institutions, or presenting class materials or their own research, .PROF gives professors and educational professionals a way to create a virtual classroom space online.
.SCHOLARSHIPS
With so many scholarship options for students, it’s helpful to have an online network of tools and information for prospective and current students. .SCHOLARSHIPS offers such a network, and will work in conjunction with the community already built by The Sponsoring Organization, the registry for this TLD and a leader in the scholarship community, to connect students and educators to scholarship services and opportunities. With .SCHOLARSHIP finding financial support for college just got easier.
.SCHOOL
In the United States alone, 75.5 million children attend elementary, middle, and high school. Although schools are located all over the world, have different methods of teaching, and cater to diverse types of students, all schools have fundamental needs that they share. In order to create a digital hub for supporting education, the .SCHOOL domain extension offers a recognizable, credible, and relevant TLD, perfect for teachers, students, schools, administrators, parents, and communities all over the world.
.SCHULE
“Schule” is the German equivalent of “school,” and a word that is recognized in all German-speaking countries throughout the world. As a connection to the relevancy of this word, and as a means to help develop the online scholastic realm, .SCHULE offers a specific domain namespace meant for all educational institutes, services, products, and communities. SCHULE can be used by any individual, group, or business, making this TLD an open registry suited for any online purpose.
.SCIENCE
From the Latin word meaning knowledge, “science” is a broadly-defined term referring to any pursuit of knowledge, usually through creating and testing predictions and theories. There are all types of sciences, and within each grouping exists different professions – teachers, researchers, testers, historians, philosophers, and more. .SCIENCE provides a flexible TLD for the purpose of providing all persons, groups, and non-profits access to a marketable and relevant science-centered domain name option.
.SHIKSHA
“Shiksha,” a common word in the Hindi language, which is spoken by 490 million people worldwide, means education, learning, training, school, study, or teaching. As such, .SHIKSHA offers a place both hooked into the Indian subcontinent and culture, but also into the educational market niche. .SHIKSHA can be used by schools, institutions, learning centers, educational forums and blogs – any use that both helps define this TLD and reach-out to the Hindi-speaking community.
.UNIVERSITY
For universities looking to market online, .UNIVERSITY provides an excellent resource. .UNIVERSITY operates as an open registry, meaning that any group, individual, or company can use this unique and flexible domain name extension for any reason, thereby opening university marketing to student groups, business affiliates, scholarships, and other organizations operating closely with but not necessarily within universities. Whatever the use, this sector-specific TLD provides an easily recognizable and credible option.
