What are the eligibility requirements for obtaining a name in the .edu domain?
Eligibility for a .edu domain name is limited to postsecondary institutions that are institutionally accredited, i.e., the entire institution and not just particular programs, by agencies on the U.S. Department of Education’s list of Nationally Recognized Accrediting Agencies. These include both "Regional Institutional Accrediting Agencies" and "National Institutional and Specialized Accrediting Bodies" recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Why do some organizations have .edu domain names even though they do not meet the eligibility requirements?
The Cooperative Agreement between EDUCAUSE and the U.S. Department of Commerce specifies that all .edu names in existence as of October 29, 2001 are "grandfathered", regardless of current or past eligibility requirements.

If you're only interested in links from a .edu domain then you can check out adison.edu or some other site offering directories, blogs and forums at .edu domain names.

I just found a place where you can get a free blog hosted on a .edu site:
