[news release] The DotGreen Registry Corporation, a California Non-Profit Public Benefit Corporation, has selected Neustar, Inc. to provide the registry and DNS (Domain Name System) services required to support the .green global Top-Level Domain (TLD).
DotGreen is preparing its application to the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to manage the new .green top-level domain in 2010. Conceived in 2007, .green was the first environmental TLD proposed to international environmental groups, and the DotGreen Registry Corporation remains the only announced non-profit public benefit corporation to seek such an environmental domain. DotGreen accepts philanthropic donations, has no owners or shareholders, and will give 100% of its profits to hundreds of green projects and green organizations aimed at sustainability in every region of the world.
