Return to Proposed Revisions to NSI Agreements Forum - Message Thread - FAQ
has been stated in this forum many times already, to change the rules on .org domains
retroactively is unfair. What are those of us who run sites that are not for profit
(no ads or any other form of profit making ventures involved, thing such as family
websites or gaming group websites) supposed to use for our TLD? We're not commercial
sites so, no .com (besides which almost all useful .com addresses are already taken).
We're not networks, so no .net domains. From the very beginning the .org domain
was expected to be used for those of us that didn't fall into the other categories
(per RFC1591 http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1591.html), so why change it now? People
already have come to understand that a .org domain isn't necessarily a non-profit
outfit, so why change things and confuse the general public. As someone else suggested,
if you want a TLD solely for non-profits, then create a new one for them!
