.ORG is for everyone! It’s the perfect domain name to connect with your community – whether it be local or global. Every .ORG domain name comes with a reputation of trust, credibility and community interest. As one of the original domains, .ORG has been shaped by the Internet community as the place to express yourself, your knowledge, your cause, within your own community. Whether you are a person with an idea to share, a small club organizing and motivating your members, or a large company conducting educational and marketing campaigns – your .ORG domain name stands for trust, credibility, and community interest. Put the power of .ORG to work today.
A website on a .ORG domain name can increase awareness, promote your cause, and inspire support. .ORG domain names are the choice for nonprofits, foundations, philanthropic entities, cultural institutions, and religious, civic, arts, social communities, sports and teams. Commercial organizations also benefit from using .ORG for philanthropic activities.
Since its inception in 1985, .ORG has empowered and mobilized over 10 million websites, serving as a reliable online venue for organisations, companies, clubs, and individuals to communicate with their core audiences about a shared interest, passion or cause.
Your organisation inspires people to make a difference, but getting the word out isn’t always easy. That’s why the .ORG domain has been a haven for nonprofits and do-good organisations for decades. It has helped reshape the online world by advancing causes, creating opportunities, and making our communities more open and collaborative.
The content of a .ORG website can appear in any language, but domain names have generally been limited to the characters used in English. .ORG domain names are available in a variety of character sets, so that characters like á, ç, è, ñ, and ö can be part of your .ORG domain name. You can learn more about .ORG Internationalized Domains Names by visiting our IDNs in .ORG Domains section.

The term ‘generic Top-Level Domains’ (gTLDs) describes long-established domains such as .COM, .NET, .ORG, and .BIZ, as well as hundreds of ‘new gTLDs’ which have appeared in recent years, such as .BLOG, .IRISH, .DESIGN or .ROCKS.
These types of domains are called ‘generic’ to distinguish them from ‘country-code TLDs’ (ccTLDs) such as .IE or .FR.
The main benefit to choosing a new gTLD (generic Top-Level Domain) such as .BLOG, is availability. The older long-established domains like .COM have millions of registered domain names, and it can be difficult to find a memorable, meaningful name which has not already been registered by someone else. The new gTLDs have opened up hundreds of new namespaces, with new opportunities for great domain names.
The second benefit of new gTLDs is that many of the new domain extensions are valuable keywords in their own right, and not merely a redundant suffix. A new gTLD is a more efficient. Compare BlueSuedeShoes.com with BlueSuede.shoes.
Yes, Google and other search engines rank new gTLDs the same way as the ‘old’ gTLDs.
The general rule is to make sure it’s relevant to the business, service or information you’re providing. So if you’re selling shoes, something like yourcompany.shoes would be a good start.
The question of whether to migrate an established website to a new domain is one that requires careful consideration and planning. If your website is established and you’ve put a lot of effort in promoting your current domain name then we would not advise you to suddenly switch your website to a new domain, irrespective of the TLD. You could start by simply redirecting the new TLD to your current domain name and move to the new TLD once a proper migration plan is in place.
