About .ORG

Country flagLogo for .org Domain

The .org top-level domain (TLD) belongs to the family of legacy domains and was originally intended for non-profit organizations. But as of 2019, its use expanded beyond non-profits, welcoming businesses and individual registrants as well. Despite this broadened accessibility, .org remains the hallmark of non-profit organizations, symbolizing a commitment to the public good. Opting for a .org domain also resonates with open-source initiatives, signaling their nature as cooperative, community-focused endeavors.

When selecting a domain name, availability is key, and you might find your preferred .org address is more accessible than its .com or .net counterparts. Choosing a .org domain should align with your organization's purpose and ethos, ensuring it conveys your intended message and connects with your target audience effectively.
