    Hi, i am currently thinking on buying a .edu domain, i have a sister and brother in law that lives in Australia and they are both University Faculty Staff but works in different university, and my brother in law is an Associate Professor, guys do you think they are able or capable to get a .edu domain?

    Nope.

    They need to be a purchasing agent for an accredited US university to get a .edu. This is handled manually by EDUCase.

    Australians get .edu.au and still you can't just be a random person working for a university, these are the guys that handle those:

    Code:
    [url]http://www.domainname.edu.au/[/url]

    I think its more information if you can get them to link to you from edu sites then to have a edu domain.

    No, they are not. There is a discussion on this somewhere on the forum If you search for it.

    .edu is more powerful than edu.xx.

    I know they're not just a random person but they are not the university either they just work there.

    The school gets 1 domain and it has to be used by the school, since this is 2011 I'm guessing the university already has a website no?

    This is not true. There are plenty of edu.xx that are more powerful than edu.

    It's not just the domain - its also the domain history and the amount of backlinks a domain has. If you search you can find some Pr9,PR8 edu.xx...and even if edu's are not your thing ac.xx are pretty potent....or would you turn down a link from Pr9 Oxford University just because its a ox.ac.uk and not an edu?
