Lady Gaga charity switches from .org to .foundation
#1
FRIDAY,10 April 2015 THE DOMAINS

According to the news from Domain Forum of China on April 10th,it’s a longer TLD but shorter address overall.

The Born This Way Foundation (BTWF), a non-profit founded by Lady Gaga and her mother, has switched its web address from a .org to .foundation.

The charity was using bornthiswayfoundation.org, which now forwards to bornthisway.foundation. Although the top level domain is longer, the entire address is three characters shorter.

Born This Way Foundation, which is housed at Harvard, is named after Lady Gaga’s 2011 album of the same name. Its mission is to inspire youth and build better communities.

.Foundation is one of Donuts’ top level domain names and has just over 5,000 registrations. I suspect many of them just forward to existing sites, so having a charity switch from .org to .foundation is a nice win for the TLD.
