The .org Domain
As one of the iconic and original domains of the Internet, .org has been shaped by the global community as the open space to express opinions, spread knowledge, and advocate causes. Whether you have a brilliant idea to share, a passion to express, a new mission to spread worldwide, or a burning desire to unite and motivate a group of people – the .org domain has always been the domain extension to communicate trust, credibility, and community interest.
You’re global, and so are we. To help advance the missions of organisations around the world, we also provide Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs). These domains will enhance the current IDN versions of .org by allowing the script – both before and after the “dot” – to be registered and used in-language.
We believe that these new online destinations will finally open the Internet to billions of people in their own languages. We welcome the opportunity to connect with those who are willing to share their fresh ideas and perspectives in this expanding new arena.
Starting in 2014, equivalents to .org will be available in the following languages:
The .ngo and .ong Domains
In early 2015, we’ll also offer two new exciting domains exclusively for validated Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs): .ngo and .ong (with .ong being the Romance language version of .ngo). They will provide immediate online recognition as well as a community-based platform for broader public engagement, funding and partnerships. With your registration for .ngo|.ong, you will be given the opportunity to create a profile in an exclusive NGO directory to promote your organisation and connect with donors.
