DotGreen Community, Inc. and Afilias announced today their partnership supporting the .green Top Level Domain (TLD). .Green is touted as “the world’s first TLD for the growing green economy, businesses, social and environmental initiatives.”
The .green TLD is as inclusive as the green economy it serves. With an open registration policy, it invites all those interested in showcasing their path to sustainability. This is unlike .organic that is a restricted extension run by Afilias as well.
“DotGreen Community is a San Francisco Bay Area startup that provides Internet users the ability to promote green causes. Like the social movement it serves, .green is rapidly expanding into an organization with collaborative partners spanning the globe.”
“.green is a brand for growth and it will serve companies and registrants who have aligned their values with their customers,” says Annalisa Roger, Founder and CEO of the DotGreen Community, Inc. “There’s no better or easier way to draw attention to your sustainability efforts than a .green name on and offline.”
Afilias, the .info and .organic registry among many others, will provide secure and trusted technical operations behind the .green domain names, allowing DotGreen Community, Inc. to deliver reliable registry services for the green community.
“.green will operate on a world class registry system that is already linked to all of the leading registrars,” said Hal Lubsen, Chief Executive Officer of Afilias Limited. “This will enable green supporters to register and activate their .green domains conveniently and efficiently. We are proud to serve this growing and diverse movement.”
“DotGreen brings additional partnerships with EarthShare, a federation comprised of the world’s leading environmental and conservation charities; and The DotGreen Foundation, a California Non-profit, 501 (c)3 Public Charity. These organizations will work together to distribute a percentage of the proceeds collected from the sales of the .green domain names to programs that work towards the advancement of sustainability worldwide.”
“Every .green domain name will increase the value of this unique partnership,” explains Kal Stein, President and CEO of EarthShare. “Registering a .green name and visiting these new .green websites will be an action that businesses and the public can take on behalf of our planet. The fact that a portion of the registration revenue will be committed to supporting a healthy environment makes this TLD launch very special.”
