The .ORG domain extension was one of the original top level domains launched in the 80s. Initially it was intended for non-profit organisations. However, restrictions were relaxed and whilst a .ORG domain name still demonstrates altruistic ventures, it can now be registered by anyone.
With over 10 million registered domain names, the .ORG domain extension is a hugely popular extension and is favoured by cultural institutions, sports teams, religious and civic organisations, schools, environmental initiatives, charities, open source software projects, volunteer groups, legal services, and many more organisations wanting to share their passion or cause.
If you have your website under the .COM domain, you can register the .ORG domain extension to demonstrate your charity work. The .ORG domain extension brings instant trust and credibility to your website. You're committed to a cause, and it's not just about the money.
The .ORG domain extension remains one of the most trusted extensions, often used as an alternative to .COM. Registrants include Google - to represent its philanthropic efforts, ICANN – the non-profit organisation behind the Internet, the Red Cross, and the World Wildlife Fund.
With every .ORG domain name you register, we give you a free Alpha SSL certificate to authenticate your website and protect your customers' data. Traffic is encrypted, meaning that when a customer sends credit card details, the information is protected against hackers and identity thieves. Our Classic DNS is designed to ensure your website always runs super fast. Plus every .ORG domain name you register comes with a free personalised email address.
Additional features include two-step verification to stop unauthorised access to your accounts. Domain privacy allows you to hide your contact details online, whilst remaining the legal owner of your domain names. We'd strongly recommend you turn on autorenew to avoid losing you domains, expiry dates are easily missed!
Below are a list of the requirements and features for registering a .ORG domain name.
