Continued .org Domain Growth Despite Emergence of gTLDs

Website owners might have more suffix choice than you can shake a stick at nowadays, but .org, one of the internet’s original domains, is still showing itself to be a good option.

In the latest of its bi-annual domain name reports, non-for-profit domain operator Public Interest Registry showed there has been a 1.4% year-on-year increase in worldwide .org registrations - the annual total hitting 10,428,027.

Much has been said about the volume of new domains names now in circulation, whether its concerns about safety or them being a potential search replacement, so it is impressive companies are still opting for .org.

Outside of the USA, the top five markets for .org registrations were Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and France. However, Asia has seen some notable rises in the first half of 2014 too, as China, Japan and India now comprise 6% of the total .org market.

Renewals of .org stand at 73.9%, while more than 55% renewed after one year. A total of 72.3% renewed after their second year and almost 85% chose to renew after their third year.
