Protecting the online assets of the .ORG community is a top priority for PIR. PIR continuously works with industry partners to ensure the best policies, practices, and technologies are employed to handle data in a manner that fosters credibility and trust. PIR does not tolerate abuse (including, but not limited to spam, phishing, pharming, malware, and botnet) in its domain extensions and will act upon any domain name that is determined to be violating its Anti-Abuse Policy. PIR vigilantly monitors registrations on a daily basis for anti-abuse purposes with the aim of keeping .ORG and its other extensions the trusted spaces they are today.
.ORG pioneered as the first gTLD to offer full Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) deployment, allowing .ORG users as well as Internet Service Providers to verify DNS data origin authenticity and integrity. The DNSSEC protocol protects against forms of domain hijacking and provides an important component in a layered defense strategy for anybody wanting to make sure their online presence is secure and trusted. Using a .ORG name with DNSSEC helps to make the Internet safer for users.
