Only bona-fide educational institutions operating in the Philippines may
register under the EDU.PH domain. It is the government of the Republic of
the Philippines, not PHNET, which
determines whether an institution is an educational institution or not.
Tertiary institutions have to be recognized by the Commission on Higher
Education (CHED). Primary and secondary institutions have to be
recognized by the Department of Education (DepEd). State educational
institutions have to be recognized by the state through an appropriate
Republic Act. Other educational/training institutions have to be recognized
Any authorized representative of an
educational institution may cause the registration of a domain in behalf
of the institution.
Domain names are registered on a first-come, first-registered basis.
Here are the steps for registering an EDU.PH domain name.
- The authorized representative must visit http://dns.ph.net,
and properly fill up the form requesting for a new EDU.PH Domain registration.
The information given in the form must be current, complete, and
- The authorized representative will receive an e-mail from PHNET
upon successfully filling up the form. The representative should reply
to this e-mail to trigger the application of the domain name
as a PENDING registration.
- Within seven (7) calendar days, the institution must submit the
following items to PHNET, either through Philippine Post, courier,
personal delivery, fax, or e-mail attachment.
All PENDING applications which have not completed all the
requirements are automatically deleted by our system without notice,
after seven (7) calendar days, PENDING applications are not visible
on the Internet.
- A copy of the CHED, DepEd, Republic Act, or TESDA recognition papers
of the institution. For DepEd-recognized schools, it is enough for you
to point the URL for the DepEd site where your school is listed.
- An authorization letter from the institution's president
or principal, written on the school's letterhead, authorizing the
representative to register the domain name in behalf of the school.
- Proof of payment of the DNS Registration Service Fee. This could be
a copy of the deposit slip to PHNET's account. The payment details are found
- Upon submission of all the requirements, PHNET makes a
determination whether to accept or deny the application. The technical
and administrative contacts are notified via e-mail of PHNET's decision.
At least a month before the expiration of a domain name registration,
PHNET's system will automatically send an e-mail notification
to the technical and administrative contact of the domain name
informing them that the domain will expire soon. The renewal fee
must be paid before the expiration date of the domain. The payment
details are found in http://dns.ph.net/payment.html.
If paid through a bank deposit, the institution must fax a copy of
the deposit slip to PHNET with the domain name clearly
written on the fax.
