.org Growth Strong in Down Economy

And now, for some good news. Not only is there growth in the .org domain (the third largest of the generic top-level domains) but it’s accelerating. That’s right, new domains grew by 7.6% in the first half of this year, more than doubling last year’s first half of 3.2%. Check out the full story on Techcrunch.

I don’t know about you but for me, this is good news. It suggests that there is momentum in the world of non-profit (not non-revenue) organizations that benefit us all. What’s even better news is that the growth has come in sectors such as environmental organizations and arts. Not so much in religious groups which used to dominate this space. Yeah for progress.
