PIR files applications to manage .NGO and .ONG Domain Extension

Public Interest Registry (PIR) ,the company behind .ORG extension,has recently announced that it has submitted its applications to ICANN for the .NGO and .ONG domain extensions . You can read the press release after the jump :

 » Public Interest Registry (PIR) – the not-for-profit operator of the .ORG domain – has formally submitted its applications to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for the .NGO and .ONG domain extensions. PIR applied for the creation and management of the new top-level domains (TLDs) as part of ICANN’s global Internet expansion initiative which would go into effect as early as 2013.

As the current manager of the .ORG domain – home to more than 9.8 million web addresses worldwide, PIR has served the interests of not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) since its inception in 2002. Now, by applying to establish and operate the .NGO and .ONG domains, PIR is poised to continue and expand its position as an advocate for these communities by providing an exclusive domain extension for NGOs looking for immediate recognition online and broader opportunities for public engagement, funding and partnerships.

“The ‘NGO’ term holds great weight globally and sets these organizations apart from commercial or governmental entities,” said Brian Cute, CEO of Public Interest Registry. “After meeting with hundreds of organizations worldwide to learn more about their missions and to determine how we, as their current registry, could better serve their communities, we found that no matter the location, NGOs desired a definitive online presence to help manage members, strengthen fundraising campaigns and find potential partners and donors. Those key findings reinforced our mission and stand at the heart of our .NGO and .ONG applications.”

As part of PIR’s commitment to the NGO community, PIR will launch the NGO Community Program, which consists of a variety of activities all designed to help those in the NGO Community to more securely and effectively use the Internet to better accomplish their mission, with a special focus on those NGOs located in developing countries and technologically underserved areas of the world.

Added Mr. Cute: “The decision to invest in this community was a natural one. We don’t want to be viewed simply as a domain registry, but instead as a trusted and valuable partner to the NGO Community – one that can empower organizations to reach their full potential.”

PIR’s application for .NGO is accompanied by .ONG, which serves as a linguistic expression of “Non-Governmental Organization.” Linguistic expressions include French: “Organisation Non Gouvernementale,” Spanish: “Organizacion No Gubernamental,” and Portuguese: “Organizacao Nao Governamental.”

“.NGO and .ONG will provide global organizations with trusted venues to help engage their communities and broaden their reach, especially in a time when online philanthropy is just as influential and effective as an organization’s offline efforts,” said Osama Manzar, Founder & Director of the Digital Empowerment Foundation, a Delhi, India based not-for-profit organization. “The .NGO or .ONG stamp at the end of a web address will, in essence, provide instant credibility for legitimate organizations hoping to introduce or expand their online presences.”

ICANN plans to announce all TLD applicants in June, 2012 and will review all applications including .NGO and .ONG during a “batching process” in the months ahead.

.org : 8,5 millions de domaines et une hausse constante

Le Public Interest Registry (l’organisme chargé de gérer le top-level domain .org) a dévoilé hier soir les résultats de son rapport bi-annuel sur les noms de domaine en .org, le troisième au monde après les .com et .net. Le « Dashboard », comme est baptisé le rapport, nous apprend qu’à l’occasion de ses 25 ans, le .org atteint les 8,5 millions de domaines, et continue sa hausse.

Au cours de la première moitié de l’année 2010, le top-level domain (TLD) .org a augmenté de 7,6%, ce qui fait plus que doubler par rapport à la hausse de 3,2% au cours de la même période en 2009. Cette augmentation amène le nombre de domaines gérés par le Public Interest Registry à 8,5 millions.

Les .ORG plus forts que les .COM et .NET !

PIR a publié un rapport bi-annuel intitulé le “Dashboard” (1). Le document montre que le .ORG a cru de 11% en 2008/2009, atteignant presque 8 millions de noms de domaine (il semble y avoir une confusion dans le texte entre nombre de noms de domaine et nombre de titulaires). Le taux de renouvellement, à 73%, est légèrement supérieur à celui des COM et NET annoncé par Verisign. Le .ORG aurait été, sur l’année 2009, celle des extensions génériques qui aurait le plus grandi, avec une performance de +5%,contre +3.2% pour le COM (et -2.6% pour le MOBI). Ses titulaires sont majoritairement situés en Amérique du nord (64%) et en Europe (24%).

ICANN’s new AGP Limits Policy Implementation

Per the ICANN Announcement of 17 December 2008 <http://icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-17dec08-en.htm>

regarding the implementation plan for the new Add Grace Period (AGP) Limits Policy <http://icann.org/en/tlds/agp-policy-17dec08-en.htm>

adopted by the ICANN Board on 26 June 2008, Public Interest Registry

(PIR) will deploy the new AGP Limits Policy during the scheduled downtime on 25 April 2009 between 15:00 and 19:00 UTC. During this period the .ORG Production System (SRS) including the Web-based Admin Interface and WHOIS will be unavailable. Domains will continue to resolve normally.

Le Public interest registry recense sept millions de .org

Le registre mondial des noms de domaine en .org, le Pir (Public Interest registry), annonce avoir atteint les sept millions de .org. Cette extension de nom de domaine prendrait ainsi la troisième place derrière le .com et le .net.

Le Pir revendique une croissance des enregistrements en .org de 250% depuis 2003, date à laquelle l’organisme a été chargé de sa gestion. Selon le Pir, cette croissance provient de diverses tendances socioculturelles. Ainsi, la multitude d’organisations à but non lucratif qui l’adoptent, la prolifération des wikis, la montée en puissance du blogging, des réseaux sociaux et de l’écologie, en serait l’un des moteurs.

Les organisations qui participent à ces tendances profiteraient d’un fort sentiment communautaire qu’incarne le .org. Il serait considéré comme une marque de crédibilité. «Nous n’imaginons pas Wikipédia en .com, l’extension de nom de domaine .org fait partie intégrante de notre identité», confirme d’ailleurs Jimmy Wales, fondateur de Wikipédia et membre du Conseil d’administration de la Wikimedia Foundation.

Tasting: Other TLDs interested by .Org’s tax?

« (Reporting from the ICANN Meeting in San Juan, Puerto-Rico). When PIR, the .Org Registry asked for an amendment to its contract with ICANN, the decision was met with little fanfare.

Nevertheless, the Registry’s decision to charge a five 5 cents deletion fee per domain to Registrars who would delete more than 90% of the domains registered in a month can be seen as some kind of Domainer Tax and was highly talked about this week in the ICANN corridors.

Indeed, when thousands of domains are tasted per month, a mere 5 cents can represent a lot of money in the end. From what we have heard, as far as PIR is concerned, the amendment, implemented a month ago, is already deemed successful as it is responsible for quite a dramatic down in domain names deletion.

While the Registry is currently happy with the outcome, it could move the threshold from 90% to a lesser number to make an even stronger deterent to Tasting. A solution that other gTLDs are reportedly looking into, with the strong backing of the Intellectual Property Constituency.  »
