The new domain, known as .NGO/.ONG, (.ONG for Spanish, French and other Romance languages), has been developed by PIR in close consultation with a broad and international range of NGOs. More than just a web address, this new domain is designed to create a unique international online community for civil society.

For the first time all sectors of civil society: humanitarians, environmentalists, human rights groups and charities of all kinds will have their own home on the Internet, with an enhanced ability to become more visible within a trusted community.
