About .giving

Why register a .giving?

Register your .giving domain name to create dedicated donation spaces of any kind, to help finance non-profit projects, foundations, or philanthropic activities by businesses.

The .giving domain extension is intended for organizations/businesses:

  • with a strong commitment to CSR (corporate social responsibility)
  • that favor positive impact not for profit
  • are dedicated to a social goal

Gandi Corporate Services’ recommendations

There is a demonstrated interest in this TLD for international businesses that particpate in philanthropic efforts. At General Availability, everyone will be able to register a .giving domain name, so the risk of cybersquatting does exist on .giving since the price is relatively affordable.
