.ORG celebrates seven million domains

Translate This Post

Yesterday .ORG, the public interest registry, announced the major milestone of seven million officially registered .org domains across the web.  Wikipedia was featured in the press release as one of the major organizations hosted as a .org.
In fact Wikimedia houses .org sites for all of its projects, as well as wikimedia.org, the website of the Wikimedia Foundation.
Jimbo Wales perhaps said it best:

“We can’t imagine Wikipedia as a .com — .ORG is a core part of our identity,” says Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia and member of the Board of Trustees of The Wikimedia Foundation. “.ORG is available to anyone in the world, and it is a great way for an organization to signal an ambition to be inclusive and global.”

Congratulations to .ORG and the millions of sites in the family.
Jay Walsh, Head of Communications<
