.COOP Domain Registrar

 

How to buy a COOP domain?

.COOP domains are reserved exclusively for co-operatives and cooperative organizations that meet specific ICANN guidelines. As soon as a .COOP domain is registered, we’ll start the verification process. The registrant will receive an email from dotCoop asking for confirmation that they are eligible for a .COOP registration. 

The .COOP name/s registered by the registrant will be inactive until the registrant is verified as eligible. If the .COOP registry is not able to verify eligibility for any reason, no refund of registration fees will be given regardless of any grace periods.

What are the benefits of a .COOP domain

There’s no better, or more cost-effective, way to raise your cooperative profile than an official .COOP website

  • A .COOP domain provides you with immediate recognition as a cooperative organization.
  • An email from a .COOP address aligns you and your fellow cooperators with the values of being a cooperative, showing that you’re part of this global movement.
  • Only verified cooperatives can have a .COOP domain, and in a world short on trust, this represents a big advantage. 70% of consumers have confidence in a cooperative.
  • You can use the official brand that stands for cooperatives around the world.
