.ORG is one of the very first generic top-level domains introduced in 1985. It is a very popular domain, easily recognizable and with no registration limitations. For these reasons, it has slowly become one of the most commonly used domain extensions. There are already more than 10 million .ORG domain names registered worldwide. ORG is abbreviation from “organization” and the domain was intended for any non-commercial organizations or for personal use.


.ORG Registration Requirements

There are no restrictions or special requirements for anyone who wants to register .ORG domain. Even commercial entities are allowed to register ORG. domains, though it might confuse the users and have negative effect on the business. ORG registrations are open not just for non-profit organizations, but various groups, individuals or any kind of sites that don’t really fit the categories of the other generic Top-Level Domains. The .ORG registry also allows the registration of internationalized domains in Spanish, German, Korean, Danish, Hungarian, Polish, Swedish, Lithuanian and Latvian.
