    .org suffix


    I always thought the .org suffix was limited to non-profitmaking organisations.
    How come http://www.pathtojoy.org pathtojoy.org is a huge Haagen Daas commercial ?

    JohnB,

    That's probably how it was intended, but it certainly isn't the case now. Register.com says:

    There are no general restrictions relating to who can register a .com, .net or .org domain name. The following are suggested uses for the TLDs:
    .com - commercial entities such as corporations.
    .net - An abbreviation for network administration.
    .org - An abbreviation for non-profit organizations and institutions

    case in point: www.nike.org
