Additionally, over the past year, Public Interest Registry conducted a comprehensive international research study on the overall awareness of the .ORG and .NGO/.ONG top-level domains. This study was conducted in key markets including the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Brazil and India. The research found that in India, .ORG has surged as a top-level domain in the past four years with domains under management jumping from just 91,000 to nearly 150,000, a 60 percent increase. While other markets also showed steady growth for .ORG, there were a few notable misconceptions about the top-level domain as well as a lack of familiarity in select markets. For example, in Brazil, 66 percent of respondents are incorrectly under the assumption that there is certain criterion that must be met in order to purchase a .ORG domain.
