Product Spotlight: How Nonprofits or NGOs Can Take Advantage of the Newly Evolved Internet
Cost: Free for Everyone!

You are invited to attend an important webinar on how nonprofits or non-governmental organizations (NGOs) can take advantage of the newly evolving Internet. The Public Interest Registry (PIR) is the nonprofit organization currently managing the trusted .ORG domain, which is widely used in the nonprofit community. With the coming expansion of the top level domain name system next year, PIR is proposing to apply for a domain extension designed exclusively to meet the needs of the global nonprofit community-- .NGO.
.NGO would be the definitive address where NGO's can differentiate themselves under regulations which they would self-impose and self-govern. A .NGO address could also include practical advantages to small startup organizations and those from developing countries.
The purpose of this webinar is to explain our proposal, how .NGO differs from .ORG, and to seek the support and assistance of the global nonprofit community.
In this webinar, participants will learn
- .NGO would be the definitive address where NGO's can differentiate themselves.
- .NGO is a closed domain extension, whereas, .ORG remains open to all.
- PIR needs the nonprofit community support to obtain the .NGO extension.
