Elevate your identity
First impressions matter and the letters after the dot in your web address tell the world more about your business than anything else online.
A .coop domain says that you are a Cooperative, and not just another dotcom. That you put people first. That you are ethical and fair. That you’re great to do business with. That you’re part of a global movement of more than 3 million Cooperatives worldwide with 1 billion members, representing 12% of the world’s employed population. All Cooperatives verify their identity when selecting a .coop web address.
The benefits of a .coop domain
There’s no better, or more cost-effective, ways to raise your cooperative profile than a .coop domain name.
- For your website, a .coop domain gives you the immediate recognition as Cooperative business.
- An email from a .coop address immediately associates you and your fellow cooperators with all the great values of being a cooperative and says you’re part of the global movement.
- Only verified cooperatives can have a .coop domain and in a world short on trust, that’s a big advantage. 70% of people say they have confidence in a cooperative.
- You can use the official brand that stands for Cooperatives around the world – the Cooperative Marque.
The coop Marque
The Cooperative Marque was developed by the International Cooperative Alliance as a global identity logo for the co-op movement.
When you register a .coop domain name, you can obtain the global Cooperative Marque. Together .coop and the Marque are symbols of the global cooperative movement and our collective identity. They differentiate your cooperative from a private or investor-owned business.
When somebody sees a .coop email, a .coop website or the Marque, they know they’re talking to a cooperative.
Today, in more than 100 countries around the world, thousands of cooperatives benefit from using a .coop domain and the Cooperative Marque.
International Day Of Cooperatives
The International Day of Cooperatives is an annual celebration of the cooperative movement. It happens on the first Saturday of July and has since 1923 when it was started by the International Cooperative Alliance. Since 1995, together with the United Nations, the ICA have been setting the theme for the celebration of #CoopsDay through the Committee for the Promotion and Advancement of Cooperatives (COPAC), a multi-stakeholder partnership of global public and private institutions that champions and supports people-centred and self-sustaining cooperative enterprises as leaders in sustainable development. The International Cooperative Alliance is a founding member.
