Can you explain the connection between the population and the .org domain zone?

I understand that .com is the ideal choice, but unfortunately it is already taken. So, what other domain zones are available? The options include .org, .info and several new zones.

When it comes to choosing between .org and .xyz, which one would be better?

Although both .org and .xyz are viable options, .org has a more classic appeal. However, how likely is it that the general population will perceive it as such?

Do you know of any popular websites that use the .org domain? The only one that comes to mind is Wikipedia, which is a great endorsement for the zone. Can you think of any other major players in the .org domain?


The .ORG domain is intended for organizations, partnerships and other socially beneficial activities.

However, if a website's content contradicts this purpose, then having a domain in this zone will likely be perceived as comical - unless the owner simply doesn't care.

In general, it's important for a website's domain to align with its intended purpose, as it can affect the credibility and perception of the website by potential visitors. Choosing a domain that accurately represents the website's mission helps to establish trust and legitimacy.


Support for German-language Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) has been launched in the .ORG domain. German speakers will now be able to register domain names in their native language, which will allow for true German spellings and the use of umlauts.

The IDN system relies on the internationally recognized IDNA Punycode standard, which converts German umlauts into ASCII-compatible character sets with the prefix "xn". This standard allows words containing umlauts to be registered as domain names and easily recognized by browsers that support the IDN standard.

This first stage of the IDN program in the .ORG domain focuses on German language support, but PIR plans to launch support for 20 additional languages during the 3rd quarter, including Danish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Swedish and Tamil.

PIR aims to introduce support for other languages after the 3rd quarter. Overall, this development is a positive step towards ensuring that individuals can express themselves online using their native languages.
 It also demonstrates the importance of having a customizable domain name that accurately represents one's identity and language.
