Useful information about .org domains

Trends & General Information

The .org domain is one of the oldest top-level-domains that exists since 1985. It was designed and introduced for non-commercial organizations, which were not covered by a different top-level-domain. The .org domain belongs to a group of so-called generic top-level-domains, abbreviated gTLDs, which are also known as "descriptive domains". The abbreviation tells really much about the direction of the domain: .org for example underlines a clear orientation of organisations.

Now, it's possible for every Internet user worldwide to buy and register an own .org domain. Registered .org domains are managed by the "Public interest registry", which is lead by the Afilias, whose task is the administration of .mobi and .info domains.
