Project 94 .org Go Daddy Auction Bidder Approval Begins

The Project 94 .org Event Auction is almost here! From March 18 to 28, 2013, Go Daddy Auctions is offering 42 rare, valuable one- and two-character .org domain names.

For Project 94, the Public Interest Registry (PIR) set aside these .org domain names for registrants who embody its core values. PIR has never released them for registration before, and it’s dedicating the proceeds to programs that strengthen the online presences of non-profit organizations. For more information, see What is Project 94?
