All about .org

Probably the most familiar .ORG domain on the web today is http://wikipedia.org. This gTLD was created in 1984 as one of the Internet’s original top-level domains, and has wide-ranging use including open source projects (http://drupal.org/), sports groups (http://www.specialolympics.org/), advocacy (http://www.kiva.org/) and causes (http://www.cbcf.org/). As the third largest gTLD, it is used worldwide, connecting smaller pockets of communities and giving them collective global reach. Public Interest Registry (PIR), the .ORG registry operator since 2003, has embraced social media to support organizations in a wide variety of ways including their YouTube Channel and World Voices events program.
