Afilias' specialized technology makes Internet addresses more accessible and useful through a wide range of applications, including Internet domain registry services, Managed DNS and award-winning mobile Web services.
This month marks the 15th year Afilias has powered the technology and support for Public Interest Registry (PIR) and its stewardship of the .org top level domain.
PIR CEO Brian Cute recently blogged about the impact of .org and how it has served the non-commercial community over the last 15 years. PIR, the leading not-for-profit registry operator in the world, has been a leader in supporting non-profit initiatives on the Internet in concert with its parent organization, the Internet Society (ISOC).
Afilias has pioneered many ground-breaking advancements in registry technology in support of .org. These advancements have made both .org and the internet ecosystem more secure and stable--and provided greater assurance that domain names will continue to be respected, secure and reliable resource locators on the global internet.
Pioneering technical achievements include:
Afilias is proud of its service to PIR, ISOC, and the Internet community while providing best-in-class technology, support and services for .org, one of the most trusted TLDs on the internet. Today, .org has more than 10,000,000 registrations, so the challenges are bigger and the vigilance required is greater. We congratulate PIR, ISOC and especially the global non-profit community on this historic milestone and pledge our continued commitment to ensuring that .org is always at the vanguard of security and stability.
