Frequently asked questions
A .school domain is a top-level domain (TLD) specifically designed for educational institutions. In plain terms, it refers to a unique web address or website name that educational institutions, such as schools, colleges, and universities, use to establish their online presence.
For example, if a school is named “Sunshine Elementary,” its school domain could be “sunshineelementary.school” or “sunshineelementary.edu,” depending on the chosen domain extension.
Schools do not necessarily need a separate domain for staff and students. Instead, they can use subdomains or sections within their main school domain to differentiate between staff and student resources.
No, schools generally cannot obtain a .gov domain. The .gov top-level domain (TLD) is exclusively reserved for government agencies and organizations at the federal, state, and local levels
While a .edu domain is primarily reserved for accredited post-secondary educational institutions, such as universities and colleges, a .school domain is designed for educational institutions, including schools, colleges, universities, training centers, and online learning platforms.
The .school may not require strict verification and accreditation but to obtain a .edu domain, institution must meet specific criteria, including regional accreditation from a recognized accrediting body.
