It's About the Registrar
You might not know it, but there is a different registry in charge of .org domains than .com, .net, etc, domains.
There are several reasons that we chose to go with .org:
- Our content is geared towards informing the general public.
- The registry for .org domains seems to be the friendliest of all.
- To the extent possible, our revenues are reinvested in making this resource better.
- It's hard not to love an organization whose slogan is: "Where people go when they need to know."
The Public Interest Registry
The .org registry is the Public Interest Registry.
