About .org domains

The .org domain is part of the group of first extensions created in 1985 and is short for "organization". At first it was only used by entities doing activities that did not fit with the other extensions, such as commercial, educational, governmental or military activities.

It is the third most popular extension, with over 10 million .org Internet domain names currently registered.

Primul domeniu înregistrat a fost mitre.org. De-a lungul timpului, .org a început să fie utilizat de organizațiile non-profit, însă este potrivit pentru orice fel de organizație (culturală, socială, sportivă, religioasă etc). Cunoscuta enciclopedie online wikipedia.org a apărut în 2001.

The main idea of the domain is to be used by people who want to help, create and achieve goals without any material interest. Its purpose is to give credibility to sites that undertake charitable actions, to those that offer access to various courses, and to communities fighting for certain causes.

Popular .org websites: mozilla.org, wordpress.org, cambridge.org, coursera.org, npr.org.
