Signing up for GitHub Student Developer Pack

Last Updated: November 18, 2022

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with GitHub Education to offer student developers a little something extra to jumpstart their online presence. Students can now get one of the many eligible TLDs plus Advanced Security free for the first year


Setting up GitHub Education

  1. First, make sure you are NOT logged into your account.
  2. Once you confirm your student pack, log into GitHub with your student email and click on the link. Then, locate on the page and click the link that connects you to our student page.
  3. On that page, click the green link that says "Click to login to GitHub".
  4. Next, search for a domain, keeping in mind that only certain TLDs are eligible for the promotion. Add the domain you want to your shopping cart.
  5. You will notice that the promo code is already applied. This is placed automatically by our system, so do not edit it.
  6. At checkout, you’ll be asked to log in to your account. Once you do, the promotion will be applied to your account and you can complete the purchase.

If the promotion will not go through or you get an error in the checkout, please verify your contact information is valid (including street address). You can update your Default Account Contacts in the Account Settings. Per ICANN policy, you must be using verifiable and valid contact information when you register a domain.
