Build trust with customers worldwide with your own .ORG domain – On sale very soon!
We’ve all come across a website with a .ORG domain. It’s super common but that’s what makes it so trustworthy. Any type of business, big and small, can add their business’s name to it and people immediately know to trust it. It’s as general as .COM, except it’s very handy if your ideal .COM domain name has been registered by someone else. Throughout our previous Domain of the Week posts, we have generally stuck to unique domains that you may not have realised were even available to use in the first place. However, general domains like this one are just as convenient and present a whole host of other benefits.
Top 5 reasons to register .ORG:
- It applies to every industry
- It’s short and sweet
- It can be used to promote non-profit organisations
- It’s SEO friendly
- It’s been around since the eighties, so everyone’s heard of it
With a .ORG domain, you can enter the .ORG Impact Awards. This annual celebration recognises and rewards outstanding mission-driven individuals and organisations from the global .ORG Community for their positive contributions to society. Nominations for this year’s awards are currently closed, but the winners will be announced November 15, 2022. The winner of the .ORG of the Year award will receive a donation of $35,000 USD while the other category winners will receive $10,000 USD each. To read more about the awards and find out how to nominate a .ORG website next year, head to the PIR website.
You can easily add some professional email addresses such as firstname.lastname@example.org. As the domain extension is so short, it’s so easy to recite the email address verbally. It’s also very convenient that .ORG is universally recognised so even if you were to give the email address to someone that speaks a different language, recalling the email is still simple. The .ORG domain as an email address tells people that anything coming from that address is not a phishing email and can be trusted.

Have a look at comozooconservatory.org, oregonstatefair.org, and tvtropes.org for inspiration, and to see how these businesses used their .ORG domain to their advantage.
