.org for Profit Site? Is it allowed? qwer msg:681434 8:48 pm on Nov 22, 2004 (gmt 0) Hi, Is it allowed to have an .org site and make money with it, for example, through affiliate programs? I know .org is for non-profit sites, but there are plenty of sites which are making money and are .org sites.

Yeah, you can do it. davezan msg:681436 8:57 pm on Nov 22, 2004 (gmt 0)
Ideally, you can register any Generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) like com/net/org/info/biz and use it to run a business. There's no law limiting its use.
How it's used on the 'Net is only ideal, but not really required to be used exclusively on
that field. SlowMove msg:681437 8:59 pm on Nov 22, 2004 (gmt 0)
I don't know who could regulate something like that? Try this search to see what's out there: [ ...] google.com SlowMove msg:681438 3:51 am on Nov 23, 2004 (gmt 0)
There are actually some big for profit names, such as www.movabletype.org whoisgregg msg:681439 6:50 am on Nov 23, 2004 (gmt 0)
It's not regulated and you can have any type of site on any TLD you can buy. (There are some you can't buy, such as .mil, .gov, or .edu because those are regulated.)
