Reserve a .org domain name.
The .org extension was one of the first top-level domains created. It was originally designed for non-commercial organisations, so that they could use a domain name that matches their image. These restrictions were later lifted, and today, anyone can reserve a .org domain name.
Created in 1985, the .org extension (for organisations) is managed by Public Interest Registry, a non-profit association. The domain is particularly popular: it has more than 10 million registered domains. Although open to everyone, this extension is widely used by sports, cultural, charitable and environmental associations. However, it is common to see second-level domains used in some countries, such as .org.uk in the UK.
Why register a .org domain name?
If you belong to a non-profit organisation, the .org extension is ideal for distributing your content and boost awareness about your actions. Its longevity and popularity make it a reliable and recognised extension across the world. As a business or for-profit organisation, .org can also be used to present your charitable works.
When you reserve your domain name with OVHcloud, you get several services included. These include a 10 MB web hosting plan, a 5 GB email account, DNS management, DNSSEC service (protection against cache poisoning) and theft protection.
