RESTON, Virginia, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Public Interest Registry, the not-for-profit operator of the .org domain, today released the results of its bi-annual domain name report "The Dashboard," detailing the worldwide growth of .org in 2014. The report reveals that the number of .org domain names registered in 2014 rose 1.3 percent, bringing the total domains under management (DUM) to more than 10,500,000 worldwide.
Other findings outlined in "The Dashboard" include:
"Last year, we saw more and more organisations across the globe turn to the .org domain to communicate their missions, ideas and initiatives in support of the public interest," said Brian Cute, CEO of Public Interest Registry. "While the U.S. has historically had the highest registration numbers, we're seeing an incredible increase in .org registrations from international markets, and as a result, they now make up nearly half of all .org websites. Clearly, no matter where a business, organization or individual is located, .org will continue its legacy to bring people together around the world and serve as a reliable online venue."
To help organisations make a stronger impact, Public Interest Registry is launching OnGood, a new suite of online services exclusively to serve the needs of noncommercial, non-governmental organizations (NGO) and non-profit communities across the globe. With OnGood, NGOs and nonprofits will have an exclusive community website with a searchable directory, and the .ngo and .ong domain bundle to help improve visibility, raise funds and connect with other organisations. OnGood will be generally available for registration on May 6, 2015.
