The .degree domain name is a top-level domain name that is specifically reserved for educational institutions. It can be used by universities, colleges, and other educational institutions to identify themselves online.
This means that .degree domain names can be used for all kinds of activities, like updating the school's profile on social media, organizing online courses, and much more.
What are the Benefits of Registering a .degree Domain Name?
With the number of people studying at college or university continuing to grow year over year, it has become increasingly important for educational institutions to establish themselves as sources of reliable information.
By using a .degree domain name, schools will be able to take full advantage of this growing market by creating an intuitive domain that links back to their main website.
This makes it easy for current students and alumni to identify the right place when they need answers to questions about class schedules, financial aid opportunities, events, and so on.
The time saved by having one single, recognizable domain name should make it easier for schools to connect with their students.
Also, since .degree domain names verify that the website they point to belongs to an actual institution of learning, they should help protect against cyber-squatting (the buying and selling of website domains in order to exploit traffic).
Using a .degree domain also gives your organization the upper hand when it comes to SEO.
The fact that this extension is restricted makes it more desirable than other generic TLDs like ".com" or ".org", which means that sites using these endings are less likely to be found first on search engines.

No, the .degree domain name is reserved exclusively for educational institutions. It may not be used by individuals or other organizations except with permission from the owner of the existing site.
