What is .coop?

.coop creates a global identity for the world's 750,000 cooperatives, helping them enhance their businesses, better serve their 760 million members, connect distant cooperatives to each other, and create new economic opportunities for people throughout the world. Coop will help consumers find the businesses they trust online while also building a stronger global economic presence for cooperatives.

.coop Verification

.COOP has updated their verification process. Please read the Coop Verification Policy pdf document for the complete information.

Note: there is no refund for failed verifications.

Eligibility requirements

Only cooperatives, cooperative support organizations, and businesses owned by cooperatives are eligible to register a .coop domain name. Though all cooperatives follow seven cooperative principles, the structure and legal definitions of cooperatives vary around the globe. To account for that, DotCOOP will work with country and regional cooperative membership organizations to verify eligibility. To be approved to register and use a .coop domain name, an applicant must qualify under at least one of the following criteria:

  • members of the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA);
  • members of the International Cooperative Alliance(ICA);
  • organizations formed as and/or considered cooperatives under applicable local law;
  • associations comprised of cooperatives;
  • organizations that are committed to the seven cooperative principles;
  • organizations that are controlled by cooperatives;
  • entities whose operations are principally dedicated to serving cooperatives; and
  • for no more than 5,000 registrants, persons or entities whose use of a .coop domain name would, in the opinion of the DCLLC Board, advance the interests of the cooperative sector in general or would assist in the development of cooperatives worldwide.
