We are officially authorized to register org-domains by ICANN and Public Interest Registry. We register your org-domains
in an fast and reliable manner.
The org-domain was one of the original top-level domains, established in January 1985, originally intended for use by organizations that did not meet the requirements for other gTLDs. Now anyone can register an org-domain.
The org-domain, which has come to be associated with noncommercial organizations, is the Internet's fifth
largest top-level domain, housing over 5 million domain names worldwide.
ICANN has decided to take the org-domain from Network Solutions and to give it to a third party.PIR was selected by ICANN
to manage the org-registry, and is committed to setting a new standard for registry services in
its management of org-domains that will meet the unique needs and interests of noncommercial organizations around
The org-domain is occasionally associated with the open source/free software movement, as opposed to the com-domains used mostly by companies. While it is true that many open source projects use org-domains (OpenOffice.org even has it in the product name), most org-domains do not qualify for this generalization, as the idea is not about software, but rather that the organization is likely to be a non profit one.
Other top-level domains such as com-domains or net-domains are associated with
commercial business, but the org-domain means "noncommercial" to the vast majority of
Internet users. Therefore, any organization whose primary focus is
noncommercial, such as philanthropic and cultural institutions; foundations;
health services; religious, civic, arts, social and fraternal organizations;
social and legal services; and clubs and community volunteer groups, should
have a org-domain and org-website. In addition, corporations should consider using the org-domain for
charitable activities and to protect their name; the site then can be
redirected to the com-domain or net-domain.
