We're optimistic that in the year ahead, more and more organisations, individuals and companies around the globe will turn to .org to share their passions, ideas and causes."
Additionally, to further Public Interest Registry's commitment to bringing people across the globe online, the organisation launched three new International Domain Names (IDNs), which translate to "organisation" or "institution" in non-Latin based scripts—Devanagari, Cyrillic and simplified Chinese. With these new IDNs, website owners are able to use their native script to brand their organisation and connect with more Internet users across the globe.
