#SaveDotOrg Wins! Sale of .org registry rejected

We did it! You may remember that the .org registry was at threat of being sold, and future .org rates and policies were at risk of changing at the whim of a private company.

Late last week, the sale of the .org domain registry to a private capital firm was rejected by ICANN. This is a huge victory of the global nonprofit sector!

NTEN, Open Media, EFF, and Fight for the Future all helped lead a campaign to collect tens of thousands of signatures from organizations and individuals who care about an affordable and community-managed .org domain. You may very well have signed on as an individual or organization to raise your voice. And it worked!

It’s been a challenging past few months for us all, and this is a wonderful bright spot! Congratulations and thank you! When we join together, we can make positive changes for nonprofit websites.
