"The Dashboard" also reveals that Asia continues to be a strong growth market for the .org domain. In the first half of 2014, China, Japan and India saw notable growth, and now comprise more than 6 percent of the total .org market.
"After three decades, we're thrilled to see that .org remains the domain of choice for organisations serving the public interest," said Brian Cute, CEO of Public Interest Registry. "In the past few years, the .org domain hit 10 million domains under management and experienced rapid adoption in several international markets. We're optimistic that in the year ahead, more and more organisations, individuals and companies around the globe will turn to .org to share their passions, ideas and causes."
Additionally, to further Public Interest Registry's commitment to bringing people across the globe online, the organisation launched three new International Domain Names (IDNs), which translate to "organisation" or "institution" in non-Latin based scripts—Devanagari, Cyrillic and simplified Chinese. With these new IDNs, website owners are able to use their native script to brand their organisation and connect with more Internet users across the globe.
