.org Domain

The domain name org is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) of the Domain Name System (DNS) used in the Internet. The name is truncated from organization. It was one of the original domains established in 1985, and has been operated by the Public Interest Registry since 2003. The domain was originally intended for non-profit entities, but this restriction was not enforced and has been removed. The domain is commonly used by schools, open-source projects, and communities, but also by some for-profit entities. The number of registered domains in org has increased from fewer than one million in the 1990s, to ten million as of June 2012.

Before the transfer can be started, please unlock the domain for transfer by the old registrar. The transfer has to be initiated through our system. A valid Authorization Code has to be provided to initiate a transfer successfully. You may obtain the authorization code from the old registrar. The Owner of the domain will receive a Form of Authorization by mail. This Form of authorization has to be confirmed by clicking a link. After the transfer is started successfully, the old registrar has to give an acknowledge to the transfer. If the old registrar will not respond within 5 days to the transfer, the transfer will be automatically acknowledged. Normally a transfer will be completed in 5 days.
