Acting in the public interest. As our name implies, PIR serves the public interest online. Our globally diverse team is committed to providing a stable online platform to enable people to do good things.

Based in Reston, Virginia, Public Interest Registry is a not-for–profit organisation created by the Internet Society (ISOC), originally to manage the .org domain. Not only do we operate and manage the .org domain, but we are also very active participants with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), and within the global domain community.
