The number of .org domain names has passed the 10 million mark.

Public Interest Registry (PIR), the operator of the generic top-level domain, revealed that was the milestone registration.

The .org domain suffix–which was originally introduced in 1985–has proved popular with non-government organizations around the world.

But with the impending launch of generic top-level domain names, organizations will soon gain access to a far wider range of options when registering a web address.

Brian Cute, chief executive of PIR, said achieving 10 million .org domain names represents “a significant achievement.”

He added that the top level domain provides “a trusted place” online for groups and individuals “to tell their stories and mobilize their communities.”

Along with .com, .edu, .gov, .mil and .net, the domain suffix is one of the six original top-level domain names.

It is currently the world’s third most-popular domain name registry.
