There are millions of NGOs operating all over the world and each one faces different issues when trying to effectively run their organization. In an effort to improve their effectiveness, the Public Interest Registry has introduced a new Internet resource for NGOs that will allow them to have the .ngo or .ong domain for romanic languages only. Thanks to this new .ngo domain it will be easier to recognize valid organizations, as both domains will be exclusively given to verified NGOs that meet a set of requirements that prove their legitimacy.
Most organizations currently have the .org domain, but then anyone can obtain the .org domain. This new domain will serve as a directory for NGOs allowing greater visibility for various organizations as well as a way for them cooperate and communicate with each other, as well as giving them credibility and trust and changing how they operate.
The .ngo domain is coming in October of 2014. For more information or to show your interest visit global ngo.
