The .HIV domain objectives

It’s the only top level domain geared towards a single social cause, created to highlight the ongoing challenges in the fight against HIV and AIDS. There is an end in sight and registering a .HIV domain name, or digital Red Ribbon, will bring that end so much closer.

AIDS kills more than two million people every year, three billion people use the Internet every day. The objectives are quite simple and attainable.

  • Generate financial resources to support HIV and AIDS organisations.
  • Raise awareness online and remind people that it hasn’t gone away yet – bringing the topic to the forefront of people’s minds.
  • Eliminate the stigmatisation and discrimination of those living with HIV.

How we can all make a difference

Carolin Silbernagl, CEO of dotHIV, had this to say when I spoke with her, “Everyone is vulnerable to HIV and AIDS regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, or nationality. We at dotHIV would love for you all to wear your digital Red Ribbon with pride so we can stand up to the challenge and end AIDS together.”

EuroDNS is committed to this fight and proceeds from this domain will be donated to the charity http://www.croix-rouge.lu/en/hivberodung/.

If you register a .HIV domain name you will be demonstrating your support and making a huge contribution. You simply have to redirect your registered .HIV domain name to your main website; you don’t even have to add content to the site. From then on, every time a user clicks on your .HIV domain name, the dotHIV registry will donate part of the registration fee to an HIV/AIDS charity.
