NGO domain pages

The Public Interest Registry will make the .ngo generic top-level domain name generally available from 6 May, as part of a new package of online services for charities.

The Public Interest Registry already runs the .org domain name and was awarded the .ngo and .ong the equivalent acronym in several Latin-rooted European languages in 2013 when the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers released more than 1,000 new domain names.

The new domain will be part of The Public Interest Registry’s OnGood package of services, which includes a community website with a searchable directory, and an ability to set up a profile page to communicate with other members and collect donations.

For both .ngo and .ong PIR is planning to charge around $45 (£27) per year.

Charities can submit an expression of interest at, which will give them the opportunity to sign up to the new domain ahead of the general launch.
