Community colleges will be able to sign up for .edu names starting Nov. 12, the day of the handover, the U.S. Department of Commerce said in a release.

The Commerce department said last April that it intended to hand over control of the domain to Educause. The domain is currently managed by VeriSign Inc.(VRSN)., which also controls the popular ".com" domain.

VeriSign will continue to provide technical support for the domain, which contains about 5,000 names. Educause will not charge a registration fee for its services, the Commerce Department said.
