.org is a generic top-level domain (gTLD), and is one of the original TLDs established in 1985. The .org TLD is short for
organisation, and the TLD is officially intended for use by non-profit and non-commercial groups, although there are no formal restrictions on who may register a .org domain name. The domains do not tend to be used for commercial entities, however, and are popular among political parties, charities, educational institutions, and open source software websites, among others. The registry database for .org is the Public Interest Registry (operated by Afilias).
