The .ORG domain name extension is one of the Internet’s original top-level domains and one of the most trusted, according to a CARAVAN Omnibus domain consumer survey. Large corporations, non-profits, special interest groups and even SMBs can benefit from leveraging .ORG domain names to strengthen their brand message.

Ninety-three percent of consumers want to know what companies are doing to make the world a better place, according to a Cone/Echo Global CR study. The .ORG domain name extension is widely associated with serving the public interest and is a powerful tool for companies to communicate their commitment to social responsibility.

Combined with Go Daddy’s industry-leading products and unparalleled customer support, businesses can quickly and easily supplement their image and better leverage their online performance.

“Businesses looking for short, effective domain names are going to love the .ORG auction,” said Go Daddy Director of Domain Name Aftermarkets Paul Nicks. “These names are the best of the best. I expect the auction of these single- and two-character domain names will not only generate high interest, but also help define the aftermarket prior to the introduction of new gTLDs later this year.”

Meanwhile, the company offers a few great deals on domain names and web hosting:

What is a domain name?
A domain name is a Web address, such as godaddy.com, that is linked to an IP address (which represents a physical point on the Internet). When someone types a domain name into a Web browser, the requested Web page displays.

A domain name consists of a top-level and a second-level domain. A top-level domain (TLD) is the part of the domain name located to the right of the dot (godaddy.com). The most common top-level domains are .COM, .NET, and .ORG. Some other popular top-level domains are .BIZ, .INFO, .NAME and .WS. These TLDs have certain guidelines but are, for the most part, available to any registrant, anywhere in the world.

The part of the domain name located to the left of the dot — “godaddy,” in this case — is called the second-level domain (SLD) name. The second-level domain name is the “readable” part of the address and refers to the organization or entity behind the Internet address. Second-level domain names must be registered with an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)-accredited registrar.
