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.

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.

I don't know who could regulate something like that?
Try this search to see what's out there:

There are actually some big for profit names, such as www.movabletype.org

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.)
