The .NGO extension has entered the General Availability phase, therefore now it is possible to order/apply for domain names within the: .NGO extension/suffix. Please contact our support via e-mail or use the contact form in order to buy .NGO domains.
The new .NGO domain is devoted to Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) across the globe. The extension provides an alternative to the existing .ORG domain and embraces all organisations who focus on public interest. Similar to .ONG, the .NGO namespace embraces all non-governmental, not-for-profit and non-criminal organisations whose mission revolves around improving the human condition.
.NGO is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Cause gTLDs gTLD) announced by ICANN, the Internet domain authority. The New gTLD Program`s goal is to enhance competition, innovation, and consumer choice. You can see it as your opportunity to get that perfect domain which has been taken by someone else. The introduction of .NGO domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .NGO domain will become public and registrations will be available to everyone (General availability).
If you are not a brand owner, before General availability you are allowed to take part only in the first phase and pre-register your desired domain names within .NGO. The use of our gTLD pre-registration module is free of charge and without any obligation to buy later on. We will keep you updated on future developments related to your preregistered domains, including information about pricing and regulations, once these have been announced by the registry responsible for a given gTLD. Please note that pre-registration of .NGO is not a queue. Although we will try our best, we cannot provide any kind of guarantee that pre-registration will eventually lead to successful registration of your chosen domain within the .NGO extension.
If you wish to secure your rights to a specific domain name, please choose our Managed TMCH Submission service which offers trademark owners a simple yet efficient way to monitor and protect their brands. It is also the only way by which trademark owners can participate in designated Sunrise periods.
For non-trademark holders Pre-registration of .NGO will be available until General availability.
With a .NGO address, non-governmental organisations and non-profit groups will clearly mark their identity and mission online. The new extension aims at better facilitating NGOs and NGO associations across the world and provides a trusted and respected online address suffix. It is perfect for establishing or expanding a credible online presence and building a broad communication platform for NGOs globally. .NGO provides unique online home for charities, non-profits and all other organizations within the NGO community.
