Why choose a .ORG domain extension?

Looking back at the history of .org domains.

The .org domain traces its roots back to 1985, when it and six other domains (.com, .us, .edu, .gov, .mil and .net) were introduced to replace the strings of numbers used to designate web addresses. The very first organization to register .org (in July 1985) was a federally funded research institution operating in the eastern United States.

Since that first registration, total .org domain names have grown from less than a million in the 1990s to more than 10 million just a decade later. Today, there’s no formal requirement that only non-profits can buy .org, but it’s generally understood to be for charitable work.
