Public Interest Registry (PIR), which currently manages the .org domain, is bidding to manage the .org domain for nonprofits worldwide.
This year, thousands of new Internet domains will be up for grabs. One that is important to the nonprofit community is the .ngo domain (pretty obvious why, right?). So it’s equally important that the right organization be chosen to run this new domain.
