About .coop

Our goal is to support the global movement by helping Cooperatives identify themselves online through the distinctive .coop domain.

  • .coop is the only domain reserved for cooperatives and Cooperative organizations. The .coop domain registry is managed by DotCooperation LLC. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) recognised .coop as the Cooperative movement’s internet domain in 2002.
  • .coop domain name registrants require verification. The eligibility and verification policies are defined by the .coop Registry. Learn more about .coop eligibility and the verification.
  • DotCooperation LLC is jointly owned by the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA CLUSA) and The International Cooperative Alliance (ICA), non-profit organisations charged with developing the global Cooperative movement.
