CentralNic launches .us.org – ethical, responsible domain.
US.ORG domains are being launched by CentralNic (the company behind .US.COM domains) through a Phased Roll-out to ensure the allocation of Domain Names in a fair, orderly and equitable manner.
CentralNic is particularly focused on ensuring the Trademark owners, particularly in the Not-for-Profit sector, are able to obtain the domains that match their Trademarks, as until now many organizations wishing to signal their not-for-profit status or socially responsible policies have been unable to obtain the name they want with an appropriate domain extension.
.US.ORG is currently in Sunrise Phase until April 4, 2011, allowing trademark holders to apply for and secure registration of domain names that are matches with trademarks.
Any queries from Trademark holders or registrars may be directed to info@CentralNic.com.
