You know those three little letters to right of the dot in a domain name – like .org, .com, and .net? Well, something new and exciting is coming to the Internet this year; something that will help people all across the globe overcome communication barriers and gain access to funds and resources, as well as trust and credibility. In Summer 2014, Public Interest Registry will launch .ngo and .ong domains for global NGOs!
