[Giveaway] 1x .Edu email account
#21
@rudra and @humanpuff69,
Thanks for your applause, I really happy to have.

I already tried some, the domain he gave to me is .edu.eg (if I'm not wrong) and this type of edu email cannot proceed with .TECH from get.tech.
I was wanting .TECH from long time ago actually, but seems the edu mail still not working with get.tech. I will take an see if I can get another offer with those EDU email.
Thanks to HostDoc and Post4VPS for providing me excellent VPS 13!

I do not think .edu.eg can be a replacement for .edu
But there is nothing wrong in trying. Let us know if you find anything unusual or surprising with that email. Have fun.

@rudra - I checked and there are registered educational institutions with the edu.eg domain. However, you're right of course in that if one would scroll down on the requirements of a Website for an .edu domain for specific services, the Website would list all of the educational institutions that are allowed for the .edu - so in essence restrict the use of .edu. It's something I wouldn't want to try  as unless I'm a legit student or member of staff of an educational institution I don't see it as honest.  If a service is intended for registered students and staff of an educational institution only, then one should be a student or staff of the educational institution.  It gives those from outside the region who are trying other ways to get the service a bad name.

you are right ofcourse. I think we might have had some edu.in sites too... oh wait...*goes off and checks it*
yikes, we have quite a lot of those. haha

i also understand that it is illegal and wrong to take advantage of any dot edu benefits unduely. I was mostly enticed by the novelty of it. though i am not saying that i would not check or take advantage of those benefits like ever...if they became available to me. But yes. it is not right. given that they are mostly affordable to me.
i am not saying I surely would. Just that i might have eventually.
i know i should probably hold myself to higher moral standards.

I try. I try often.

Except when it is about books and papers and other matters that help me learn. I have very low moral standards in those cases.

There was a time I would jumped on offers like these because .edu links used to be a big thing in search engine optimization. Webmasters would try to gain links from universities and colleges and for that to make it look like official you have to send it using an edu mail address. Of cause .edu has more value than .edu.eg etc. Anyway there is no big SEO value on those anymore. Google has fixed that.

@deanhills,
I'm a real student, but the one problem I got is I'm Asian. Most of the free service doesn't offer that for Asian student.
My school also don't just "give away" an email with their school official domain, so I really cannot give them see that I'm a real student unless I gave them my school ID card.

BUT, I have got a moment where my student ID card rejected by AWS for Student (and I don't know why a months later they accept it), some of the services also don't want to be emailed for student ID card verification, so they only wanted to have the email instead of ID card. I also don't like to send my ID card. Anyway, the EDU email method is completely useful for a student like me. That's why I like it.

@tiwil  I understand the problem.  Except, even if you got an e-mail address, unless your University is registered with the service, i.e. there is a scroll down list at the Website of the service that contains the name of your University, you'll never get it.  Your University has to be a subscriber (paid or free) of the service, before you as the student can get it. And yes, even then there may be problems.

Your best bet would be to visit your IT Department and find out from them what free services you're entitled to as a student.  They may even provide you with free services you need, as sometimes if the IT is not very well organized, they don't tell the students what services they can get for free and they don't set it up globally.  Like they may know of the popular Education License Microsoft Office software that you can buy through the University at 1 US$ and maybe use those opportunities for themselves and friends and just don't think about circulating that information - or setting the service up so all students at the University can use it.  IT staff are supposed to communicate that to all of the students, but maybe they don't have enough time to do so.  Or are not that strong with administration.

There is a lot of hype around dot.edu e-mails.  Not all dot.edu Universities can get a free service that asks for a dot.edu e-mail address, only those dot.edu Universities who are registered with that service.  Also, it's not true that Universities without a dot.edu can get the service.  If they are registered for the service, then their students and staff can get the service on the basis of their registered domain with the service, i.e. through their e-mail address with the University domain.
