Public Interest Registry

Public Interest Registry’s primary activity is to operate .org, one of the original three Top Level Domains in the Internet and the home to a large portion of the world’s NGOs.  We maintain the .org domain registry as the exemplary registry service and advocate for the highest standards of Internet security, safety and reliability.  Our mission is to facilitate the effective us of a global Internet among non-commercial and other Internet users worldwide.  In addition we are committed to supporting the goals of the Internet Society, encouraging the evolution of the Internet as a research, education and communications tool equally accessible to the global non-commercial, NGO, and non-porfit community. 

In short, we seek to Act in the public interest. As our name implies, we exist to serve the public interest online. Our globally diverse team is committed to providing a stable online platform where everyone has a voice.

For the billions of people we serve, we empower other people’s voices and we love to hear them tell their stories. As long as we are here, the global community will have a platform to define their identities, and will be as it was always meant to be: connected and open.
